Which Type Of Home Is Right For You?
There’s a lot to think about when buying your first home–or moving to your next property. How much thought have you given to the type of nest that’s right for you? Let’s take a look at some of the things to consider when determining the type of dwelling you want to purchase.
Do you and your significant other plan to start or grow your family, or will it just be the two of you? A home with an extra bedroom or two and a nice, big, fenced-in yard would be ideal for the kids, but if it’s just going to be the two of you, the prospect of a smaller, maintenance free condo without any lawn upkeep to worry about might be pretty appealing.
A townhome with a small fenced in backyard could also be a good compromise between a condo and a full-size home.
If you value your space and want to maximize the peace and quiet, often times a home is the way to go, if it’s within your budget. Some condo and townhome units have paper thin walls, so keep in mind you may risk moving in next to (or beneath) noisy neighbors.
