Finding the Castle Rock Townhome or Condo That’s Right for You!
People buy townhomes and condos for many different reasons. Perhaps they enjoy living in a home that doesn’t require a lot of outdoor maintenance. Or maybe they like having neighbors very close by. Possibly value is at the root of the decision: Buying a townhouse or condo is often a better deal than a single family home, offering more space for less cost.
Whatever the case, if you’re in the market for a townhouse or condo, it is to your benefit to learn the distinct differences between the two, as well as possible measures you might use to decide between them. Of course, there’s no sense in buying a home in an area you won’t jive with, so we’ll briefly take a look at what buyers can expect when they move to Castle Rock.
Castle Rock CO Townhomes Versus Condominiums
First things first: What is the difference between a townhome and a condominium? Most people assume a condo has to be part of a larger apartment complex, but that’s actually not the case. Condos may also take the form of townhomes or even small houses, the difference being that condo owners only own the space inside the walls. The outside areas are held in common, usually by an association. Keep in mind that although you don’t have to maintain the common spaces, you do have to pay for them, usually in the form of homeowner’s association (HOA) dues.
Townhouse residents, on the other hand, own the space outside as well as inside, and usually have small yards or strips of land attached. While they don’t have HOA dues, they are responsible for yard maintenance. Both townhomes and condominiums can serve as homes for singles, couples and families, assuming they are spacious enough.
Establish Your Priorities
Of course, before you sign your name on the line, you’ll want to make sure that the home is really for you. Establishing your priorities can help with this. If you enjoy gardening, a townhome is probably a better bet. On the other hand, if you really like a front door that’s inside, then an apartment-style condo will work better for you. Other considerations include:
- The number of floors you want
- Whether you’d prefer to pay dues for maintenance or provide your own
- If you mind sharing outdoor space with others
- Whether you want to be able to rent out your place (since many HOAs have restrictions on the percentage of people who can do so at any one time)
- Similarly, whether you are okay with HOAs that makes rules regarding where you can park and what you can do outside
Everyone is different, so talk to your realtor about what matters most to you so he can help you find your dream home.
