Townhomes and twin homes are very popular in the Bismarck-Mandan area. Our listings include plenty of these home types in various communities, coming in a wide range of sizes and prices.
Townhomes are generally defined as two or more houses that share at least one wall, with a separate ownership for every unit. Twin homes are similar to townhomes, but have only two units.
A townhome or twin home differs from a duplex or multiplex in terms of ownership. All units in a duplex or multiplex property are typically owned by a single person or company. Often, the owner lives in one unit and rents out the rest, making these properties great investment pieces.
Property coverage differentiates a townhome from a condo. Townhome ownership includes a portion of the yard, typically in front of the unit. Condo ownership, on the other hand, is limited to the space within the unit’s walls.
Why choose a townhome?
The choice between a townhome and a single-family home or other housing types all boils down to personal preference. Several factors make townhomes the better option.
- They’re more affordable. For the same amount of space and in the same or comparable neighborhoods, townhomes generally cost less than single-family homes. Living in a townhome does not mean you’ll have smaller living space compared to a single-family. Townhomes and twin homes in the Bisman area sized anywhere from less than 1,000 to over 2,000 square feet with 2 to 3 bedrooms and at least 1 garage.
- They boast excellent features. Townhomes are newer than many single-family homes so they come equipped with the latest features, such as modern kitchens, energy-efficient appliances and lighting, and so on. Many townhomes also feature amenities like a family or entertainment room, walk-in closets, a home security system, professional landscaping, and more.
- You get a yard. It may not be as big as in a single-family home’s, but you will have space for a nice little garden or for the kids to play in. Some townhomes come complete with common amenities like a pool or a tennis court, so you don’t need to go far for leisure.
- You get better security. If you’re leaving the home empty for a few days or weeks, you can ask the neighbors to look after your place. Living in a townhome often fosters close ties among residents, so everyone helps in watching over each one’s property.
