Owning a home has long been regarded as a cornerstone of wealth and security. It cannot be lost or stolen. It often appreciates in value and functions like a giant piggybank. By straddling the gap between condominiums and single-family homes, townhouses are one of the most affordable options for housing in Vancouver. Whether you’re upsizing, downsizing, or a first time buyer, here are some of the best reasons to take the plunge.
Why to Buy a Townhouse in Vancouver
- No more maintenance. Townhouses are typically managed by strata councils, which charge a monthly fee to look after all the exterior features like roofing, painting, and even yard work.
- Petunia friendly. You often get a small fenced yard for your flowers, vegetables, or organic herb garden.
- It’s yours. Sure, you’ll be sharing walls with a couple other residents, but you still get way more privacy and quiet than a condo
- Freedom. You can travel knowing that your garden will be watered and neighbors are close by.
- Value. Since construction elements like walls and foundations are shared, you often get better value for money.
- Low interest rates. Okay, this applies to any property right now, but it’s still a great reason to invest.
- Amenities. Townhouses can come with lots of great facilities like an exercise room, pool, storage, bike room, and common room.
- Extra space. With two to three bedrooms, guests aren’t relegated to an inflatable mattress in the middle of the living room.
- Your own door. You get the convenience of a complex with a neighborhood feeling.
