A Parker CO Townhome or a Parker CO Condo? Decisions, Decisions!
It’s a condo, it’s a townhome, it’s … both? The difference between condominiums and townhomes is confusing to many people, not least because condos don’t always have to take on apartment-like qualities, but are sometimes structured as townhouses themselves, or as small detached dwellings that look much like single-family homes. There are, however, several key differences between condos and townhomes (and no, you can’t have both at the same time … sorry!).
Before you draw up your offer paperwork for the townhome or condo of your dreams, it pays to be sure that the property you’re looking at has all the qualities you need. Not only that, you should also take a tour through beautiful, sunny, mountainous Parker to ensure you love the town as well, because who wants to buy a home in a spot they won’t be happy in? Exactly no one, that’s whom. So without further ado …
What Is the Difference Between Parker CO Condos and Parker CO Townhomes?
When you think of townhouses, chances are you see neat rows of homes all stacked against one another and marching down the street. Each has its own front door and a small but tidy yard out front, and perhaps another little strip of land in the back. This is the classic townhome image, and it’s pretty spot-on.
Condos, on the other hand, usually conjure up images of large apartment buildings with front doors inside halls or on covered stairways. Although condominiums can take the form of apartments, you learned up top that they can also look like townhouses or small single-family homes. So then, why buy a condo over a townhouse? Well, if you like the thought of only caring for the space inside your home, then a condo is for you. As a condo owner, you will pay dues into a homeowners association (HOA), which then cares for communal outdoor spaces.
As a townhouse owner, on the other hand, you are responsible for all upkeep of your outdoor areas and exterior home elements. But that also means that they’re your areas, and you don’t have to share them with others. How to choose?
The Great Parker CO Townhome vs Parker CO Condo Debate
Okay, fine, there’s no huge debate in Parker over whether townhomes or condos steal the show when it comes to real estate. (But it sounded good, didn’t it?) What you should keep in mind, however, is how important it is to find the property that will work for you over the long haul. Because buyer’s remorse is awesome! … said no one ever.
Here’s a handy list of questions to ask yourself:
- Do I like sharing outdoor spaces?
- Am I hoping for a community feel or a more isolated vibe?
- Do I enjoy outdoor property maintenance?
- Can I live with the rules set by many HOAs (including rules about pets, leasing to tenants, décor, parking, etc.)?
- How many levels do I want?
Your Parker CO real estate agent can help you think of more questions. If you take the time to think carefully before buying a home, you’re more likely to be happy with the one you land in.
