When you think of a townhome, you might assume that you can only pay a mortgage and own a townhome. However, like apartments, you can rent a townhouse in the Apartments of Wildewood community. Renting a townhome gives you a trial experience of living in your own home. It’s an excellent alternative to renting a unit in an apartment building, and here is why.
When you rent a townhouse, you eliminate or reduce the number of tenants surrounding you. Some people don’t mind living around a bunch of neighbors, especially if they’re friendly. However, renting a townhome might be better if you prefer more privacy and solitude.
Townhomes are larger. Therefore, you have more room to spread out and breathe and won’t feel as restricted or as if you and your roommates are piling on each other. While renting a townhouse means interacting with fewer tenants, you might still consider having roommates to save money.
More room in a townhome also means that you’ll have more space to decorate and bring your townhome to life. The space and independence allowed in a townhome often appeal to young families saving for a larger home once their kids grow up.
Avoid HOA Fees
The benefit of renting a townhome is that you can access all the amenities of a regular home without the HOA fees. Like an apartment, you won’t be responsible for grounds maintenance or fixing issues in the townhome, such as leaks. You’ll still have access to community amenities such as the clubhouse, fitness center, and pool.
Less Money Upfront
When you buy a townhouse, you have to pay a downpayment. Rocket Mortgage stated that the average first-time home buyer could expect to spend $10,000-$15,000. When you decide to rent your townhome, you can enjoy more instant gratification and pay less upfront.
Getting approved to rent a townhome versus renting an apartment is virtually the same. While a landlord will still vet you, the process won’t take as long as it would if you were purchasing a house. The cost of rent would merely increase.
Why rent a townhome? It’s comparable to owning a home without all the inconveniences and drawn-out processes. Contact the Apartments of Wildewood today if you are considering moving into one of our beautiful townhomes.
