Which Home Type is Right for You?

Filed under Buying a home on Aug 07,2018 | Tagged in: , , , ,

First-time homebuyers are often confused about the differences between condos, townhomes, single-family homes, multi-family homes and co-ops. There are some major differences and a number of pros and cons to each.  A good place to start in understanding it all is this article from Redfin.  But, beyond the basics, how do you know which type of home is right for you? suggests that you look beyond the sales prices, and consider your lifestyle, home maintenance skills and financial standing.  For example, if you enjoy the freedom to enjoy life without the cost and time requirements of home maintenance, a condo or town home may be best for you.  If you’re the creative type and want to stylize your home’s exterior, you’ll want to avoid communities with a Homeowner’s Association. Dreaming of a yard, a spot for gardening, and some privacy?  A single home will fit the bill – if you can deal with the time needed for lawn care, and the higher costs for utilities and repairs.

"I worked with Donna Brun for the past year to sell my home in Cold Point Manor. The real estate market has not be optimal for sellers. I have to share it was a pleasure to work with Donna. Her commitment and honesty were important to me. She cares about the work she does each day which I find so valuable and refreshing in business today. I would highly recommend Donna Brun to help you with your real estate needs." - Scott Passman
