10 Reasons Why You Should Buy A Townhome

Posted: September 19 2019

If you’re an individual looking at new homes, you will be faced with the question­–townhome or single-family home? In this blog we will go over all the pros of purchasing a townhome. As a successful builder in the industry for over 42 years, we continue to build beautiful townhomes that are comparable to single-family homes, they just serve you differently. Townhome living is a lifestyle.

1. Location
Our townhomes are built in already matured neighbourhoods, somewhere quiet enough to enjoy privacy, yet close to amenities and freeways. Location is everything, we build next to schools & transit, hospitals & shopping. These amenities will serve you now, renters later, or home purchasers later if and when you decide to sell or rent.

2. The Layout
Townhomes get straight to the point, our floor-plans are all about functionality. No wasted space, and packed with everything that matters. Kitchens being the centre piece, sizable bedrooms upstairs, flex spaces with windows in the basement so you can develop a sunny home office, a 4th bedroom, kid play space, TV room, exercise room, (the list goes on…) all separate from the main floor. Stacking laundry for practicality, double master bedrooms options for the roommates. Dining rooms, and large living rooms complimented with windows that allow light in to create openness, so you can enjoy views that are completely comparable to a single family home. There are several customizable options that you can choose in a Landmark Townhome, so you can select exactly what works for you.

3. Safety & Security
You’re part of a community! Typically, with people who want to capture the same lifestyle you’re after. The safety aspect is huge for starter families, or singles. You’re less transient susceptible, and your neighbours are more likely to look out for you, opposed to single family where you’re a little more secluded. Our townhomes are built in reputable areas in the city. Plus, each townhome has an attached drive under garage. Driving into your well-maintained development, getting in and out without having to go outside is a luxury in itself.

4. Maintenance Free
Shovelled and landscaped! Again, this is a lifestyle choice. Everything exterior is completely taken care of! A yard for your own private use, and a balcony that’s completely yours too. Similar to a single-family home, just not as much work or responsibility. No need to buy gardening tools, fertilizer, a lawn mower or a shovel. Plus, this is a renting or selling feature that not only serves you, but it’s very attractive for renters or the next owners in the long run. That takes us to reason number 5. Keep reading!

5. Rentable
Townhomes are very rentable, so when you decide it’s time to move on to a bigger home, our quality of workmanship and finishing’s ensure your home will last and be in great rentable conditions when the if and when the time comes. Your Landmark Home is an investment.

6. Affordability
Townhomes aren’t a huge sacrifice monetarily speaking, most people in the city pay higher rent on an apartment condo than your monthly mortgage payment would be on a Landmark townhome. Seriously!

7. Value
The way we build our townhomes is like no other. Every home is constructed indoors at ACQBuilt. This means your building has never been exposed to outdoor elements like rain or snow, this eliminates mold and bacterial growth. Plus the structure and foundation is shared, you get better value for your money.

8. Energy Efficiency
Our townhomes are high performance homes. All energy efficient features are included, like smart wiring for cost savings and convenience. All heat & water energy saving features (they are no different than what we build into our single-family homes!) Energy efficient stainless appliances are all standard! Additionally, you save even further on heating bills, because all your walls aren’t completely exposed to the exteriors, your home does not have to work as hard to keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer!

9. Trendy Inside & Out
Have you seen our townhome exteriors? Every development is completely updated and trendy, from clean green landscaping to modish black metal fencing. Interior wise, we’re proud to be colour board free! Quartz is a standard, laminate flooring is a standard! And, you get so many standard options­–with options to upgrade too! Make interior selections in our Design Studio to create a home that looks exactly the way you want. Your style, tailored at ingeva Design Studio!

10. First Place Program & Federal Government First Time Home Buyers Incentive!
If you’re a first-time home buyer, our townhomes have never been so simple to get into. With the option to use either of these awesome financial solutions to make getting into your first home easier. The First Place Program allows you to save money the first 5 years of home ownership with no land payments. And, the federal government incentive program allows you to save money monthly with a bigger borrowed down payment!
