Is a Single-Family Home Right for You?

People choose single-family homes for a number of reasons. Unlike living in a condo or a townhouse, a single-family home offers you the freedom to make your own choices about the exterior, and often the interior, of your home. With a single-family home, you can make exterior cosmetic changes, such as painting your doors or shutters, or you can alter your landscape to suit your tastes. Condos and townhouses often share the same exterior features and offer little room for landscaping options. Additionally, when purchasing a condo or a townhouse, odds are that you are purchasing a unit that looks exactly like all the other units on the inside – basic interior layout with stock fixtures – unless you are purchasing a unit that is still under construction.

A single-family home also offers privacy and space that many families value. When shopping for a single-family home, you can opt for a property with a larger yard and more space between neighbors, or you can opt for a smaller yard and closer neighbors. With a single-family home, you have the choice of adding the amenities you desire, such as putting in a pool or transforming the garage into a gym, rather than paying for amenities you aren’t interested in as you would if you were to purchase a condo or townhouse.

Single-family homes are often more convenient for families who enjoy active lifestyles. In a standalone home, a family wouldn’t have to worry about being too loud or rowdy and disrupting the neighbors in the adjoining units. This is particularly nice if you have dogs, small children, or teens who love loud music. Having your own yard is also great for families because it provides space for kids and pets to run around and play games. You could also host your own outdoor gatherings without having to worry about reserving a shared space or ask permission from the property manager like you would have to do if you purchased a condo or townhouse.

Even empty-nesters can find enjoyment with a single-family home because so many size and space options are available. And don’t forget, even empty-nesters will want at least one guest room to welcome kids, grandkids, or family when they come to visit.
