Watercress townhome in TampaTownhome living appeals to so many homebuyers for a wide variety of reasons. An affordable option for first-time buyers, the perfect lifestyle for those who travel frequently, and ideal for enjoying city living are just a few of the possible reasons you may find a townhome ideal. If you are considering purchasing a townhome, here are the top six reasons our buyers love living in our townhomes in Tampa, Riverview, and Sarasota.

  1. Living in a townhome allows you to enjoy the beauty of green space around your home without the hassle of maintaining it! Lawn maintenance is included in the HOA for all of our townhome communities. That means you get to enjoy a beautiful yard without sweating in the Florida heat to maintain it.
  2. Living in a townhome, like our Bradford Manor townhouses in Sarasota, means you can luxuriate in a true low-maintenance lifestyle. Not only does the community HOA handle lawn maintenance, but they also manage all exterior maintenance. You’ll never have to worry about painting the siding, replacing the roof, or even cleaning the gutters.
  3. The low maintenance manner of living, coupled with the abundance of amenities in our townhome communities means you’ll be living the resort lifestyle!

  4. Townhome living is cost-friendly! Typically, townhomes are more affordable than single-family homes that provide comparable living space and features, making them an ideal option for first-time buyers. The maintenance-free lifestyle provides an easy transition from renting to homeownership, and owning your home allows you to build equity, making a townhome a better financial investment than renting. In fact, with the cost of rents rising in many Central Florida cities, homeownership may be more affordable than renting, making it even more appealing!
  5. Many townhome communities are close to or in big cities, offering urban convenience. Townhome living allows you to find most of the amenities you want and need, conveniently close to home — city amenities, like top shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations; major employment centers offering an abundance of job opportunities; and outdoor recreation opportunities unique to Central Florida, like parks, lakes and beaches.
  6. Another unique aspect of townhome living is the tight-knit community that develops from living with neighbors nearby. Living in a community of people with similar interests enjoying a similar lifestyle can quickly create bonds of friendship. Plus, getting to know your neighbors offers a sense of belonging and security from knowing your neighbors are watching out for you.
