Advantages of Buying Townhomes in Mebane

mebane4Are you struggling to decide between buying and renting a home? Townhome living just may be the best of both worlds. When you purchase a townhome, you own that structure and the land it sits on, yet you are not responsible for the upkeep of either. Townhome living is not for everyone, but there are some major advantages. The Village at Lake Michael has townhomes for sale that are close to Raleigh. Our units have even more advantages than the average townhome, including close proximity to a beautiful lakefront.

Trying to decide if townhome living is right for you? Consider these key points:

Property maintenance is included.

Don’t have much of a green thumb? If yard work isn’t your idea of a fun pastime, no worries. Townhome communities do all the landscaping and lawn maintenance for you. This even includes snow removal if necessary. Even exterior façade upkeep is of no concern to the homeowner.

Community amenities are close to home.

Four friends having fun in the swimming poolThink pool, fitness center, walking trails, etc. You will find these things and more within the property lines of the townhome community. No need to drive around town or pay for a gym membership. Everything you need is right here.

Townhomes cost less than single family homes.

There’s no denying that a townhome will cost you less than a single family home in the same area. But in many cases free standing homes have comparable square footage and a lot that isn’t much bigger than what a townhouse will have. And when you do want more outdoor space, the community has common areas with plenty of lawn available.

There’s safety in numbers.

When your neighbors are close by, there’s much less chance of burglary or other such problems, because there’s always someone watching. And neighbors check up on each other. If something were to happen, such as a medical emergency, someone will always be around to help. Townhome communities are close-knit, if for no other reason than the close proximity of your neighbors.

You own your home and the land it is built on.

Whether you purchase your townhome outright or get a mortgage, you still acquire the equity of the property. You’re not just paying rent, which is money you will never see again. Your townhome will have great resale value for the same reasons you bought it: all those great benefits listed above.
