An often under-considered low-rise housing type is the condo townhome that’s part of a larger condominium community. When people think of low-rise housing, they think single detached homes. When people think of condos, they usually think of high-rises. You may not realize that owning a condo townhome that’s integrated into a condo community actually offers many desirable advantages, beyond just having your own front door at street level!  

1) Access to condo amenities

Many condo townhomes are located at ground level of mid-rise and high-rises, and most mid-rise and high-rise communities have amenities created exclusively for the residents. So, you can have a low-rise lifestyle, and have access to onsite amenities such as a gym, yoga/Pilates facilities, a party room, and in some instances a pool, in addition to all the other amenities in the building(s).

2) Exterior maintenance

When you live in a condo, you pay maintenance fees. These fees are used to maintain the common area of the property, inside and out. You don’t need to worry about a gym membership or tending the landscaping, and if you have a lawn, that will be cut too! This allows you to do more of whatever it is that you want to do.

3) Amenity-rich locations

With condo townhomes there’s a good chance you’re surrounded by lots of neighbourhood shops and services providing a great Walk Score, while suburban locales typically are also situated close to everything you’ll want or need, seek one that offers an excellent Transit Score to enhance connectivity.

4) More affordable

According to the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD), the average price of a new low-rise home in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) exceeded $1.2 million this summer. New condo units averaged half of this, surpassing $600,000. We will say that condo townhomes are usually among the most expensive units in a new condo project, but compared to detached homes, they are generally much more affordable!
