8 Advantages of a New Edmonton Townhome
As you look at the options for buying a new home in the Edmonton area, make sure to consider the possibility of a new townhome. Older styles may have felt cramped, but the modern versions offer almost all of the advantages of a single-family home. In fact, you’ll soon see why a brand new townhome may be even better.
Choice of Great Communities
For instance, the Sienna neighbourhood in Fort Saskatchewan is very family-friendly. It’s perfect for those who want a more affordable home outside of the city limits. Tamarack Common, on the other hand, is extremely close to the Henday, Whitemud, and 17th street. From this location, it’s easy to get to playgrounds, sports fields, shopping, and other popular destinations.
Variety of Floor Plans
When you purchase a brand-new townhome, you get to choose from a variety of styles. The Cooper model, for instance, is a fairly basic plan, but you still get three bedrooms, an upstairs laundry, and a walk-in pantry in the kitchen. If you’re looking for even more space, all three bedrooms in the Delton have walk-in closets, and there’s a bonus room and patio on the second floor of the Cypher II.
Being a Landowner
Some people mistakenly think owning a townhome is similar to owning a condo in that you don’t own the land. However, townhome owners are indeed landowners. Some of the basics of owning a townhome are similar to condo ownership, but this is a big difference.
No Condo Fees
Speaking of condos, a good builder believes in making their townhome affordable – and this means no condo fees. In short, not only can you look forward to similar benefits of a condo owner, you won’t have to pay for the privilege of a low-maintenance lifestyle. This means you can look at affordability solely on the basis of your mortgage payment.
Large Homes, Modern Looks
Homes vary greatly in size, but some of our townhomes are larger than our detached homes. The Delwood model, in particular, offers over 1,500 square feet and the Caliber tops over 1,600. When you choose to finish the basement of a townhome, you get even more living space.
Best of all, both the interior and exterior of a brand-new townhome will have a nice, modern look. Sterling townhomes all feature a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and ensuite. You can have hardwood floors, beautiful tile in the bathroom, and a fun backsplash in the kitchen. Your new townhome can be move-in ready and there will be nothing you need to update.
The idea of sharing a wall with your neighbours is often a big deterrent. You don’t want to be listening to someone else’s TV while eating your dinner. Surprisingly, this is not a big problem in modern townhomes. They must meet current building codes that state everyday noise cannot pass through the walls. As soon as you move in, you’ll enjoy the quiet and peaceful life you’ve been dreaming about.
Lastly, you’ll find cost is perhaps the biggest advantage of purchasing a townhome. Most townhomes are far less expensive than comparably sized single-family houses. When you combine this affordability with the fact you can still get most of the same features you’d find in a detached home, it seems like an easy choice to make.
It’s hard to say whether a townhome is the right decision for your family without taking a good look at your options. Come out to one of our show homes to see what we have to offer. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
