Are you ready to move on with the next phase of your life and considering selling that detached home for someone newer and smaller? Whether you want to downsize or simply want a home that’s easier to manage, a townhome is the perfect option for the homeowner that wants to own a traditional home without dealing with all of the heavy lifting that comes with it. It’s simply one of the most convenient housing options out there. If you’ve been on the fence about purchasing your very own townhome, take a look at some of the perks that comes with townhome living.

Less maintenance

Some people love nothing more than shoveling snow out of their driveway or mowing the lawn during the summer. If this isn’t how you stay Zen and you dread the thought of doing outdoor chores around the home, a townhome may be perfect for you. Maintenance staff takes care of all of these pesky to-do’s for you, meaning you never have to pick up another weed chopper ever again.


Condo board takes care of repairs

The sick feeling one gets in the pit of their stomach whenever a major repair has to be done is the bane of any detached homeowner. Because the homeowner is responsible, they must either figure out a way to fix the problem themselves or possibly spend thousands getting the major repair fixed. It’s enough to keep any detached homeowner up at night, so don’t stress yourself out – instead, transition into townhome life and never worry about doing another repair again. A condo board will arrange for everything to be taken care of, no matter the magnitude of the repair. Sleep easy knowing that you never have to repair anything around the house again!

Closer to amenities, walkable neighbourhood

Having your own spacious backyard and plenty of privacy sure has its perks, but it usually means your detached home is further away from some of the most convenient amenities in the GTA. Find out why so many people love living closer to the city by selling your detached home and trading it in for a townhome! Not only are townhome neighbourhoods usually very walkable, you’re typically closer to amenities that make this region great: cafes, restaurants, one-of-a-kind shops, and public transportation for those spontaneous day trips just to name a few.


Why pay more for so much less? A detached home continues to get more expensive to maintain as the home ages – not to mention it could lose value over time. Alternatively, a townhome is extremely affordable – especially for first-time homebuyers looking to spread their wings and move on to the next phase of their lives. With maintenance and repairs provided, chores done on the spot so you never have to mow or shovel cold, wet snow ever again to being in a neighbourhood your friends and family will be envious of and beyond, it just makes sense to move into a townhome.
