The Top 5 Perks of Choosing a Townhouse, Manhattan, New York

If you’re looking at properties for sale in your desired area, don’t forget to consider townhouses. The option is especially fitting if you’d like a place that’s more spacious than an apartment but aren’t quite ready to leave the city for a residential plot of land. As you begin your search, keep in mind the following unique range of benefits they offer.

Why Invest in a Townhouse?

1. Location

One of the reasons townhouses are designed as they are — narrow and connected to the neighboring buildings — is to make the most effective use of the property in an area where space is highly coveted. They are conveniently located in major towns and cities, with options for work, recreation, and shopping close at hand.

2. Maintenance

TownhousesTownhouses offer modest oases that require far less upkeep than owning a home in the suburbs. A small, intimate yard buys you all the nature and private outdoor space you need to relax and unwind while still enjoying the perks of city life. 

3. Security

Having neighbors nearby not only fosters a sense of community, but it tends to deter burglars and gives them less opportunity to break in. If you are afraid or need help, another person is only a door away. Moreover, townhouse developments tend to be well-lit.

4. Amenities

Townhouses often share public areas and amenities that benefit the entire community. Residents have exclusive access to pools, exercise rooms, and other features that are expertly maintained by the homeowner’s association.

5. Privacy

While townhouses do share walls, they are not connected inside; each unit is separate. As such, there is less noise transfer than in an apartment complex where you have upstairs and downstairs neighbors, allowing for more peace and privacy.
