Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Why Buyers Choose Condos and Townhomes in Clarksville TN

Why Buyers Choose Condos and Townhomes in Clarksville TN

Buying a Condo or Townhome Has Benefits 

Governors Crossing

Not every buyer wants to live in a condo or townhome but for those that do, they love them. I see many advantages of living in a condo as opposed to a single family detached home. It is much more of community living and that appeals to the lifestyle of certain buyers.

Some buyers look at it as a shorter term solution while they transition from one home to another single family home. There are many types and styles of townhomes and condos and they are located in many parts of town.  

 

You can see condos currently on the market for sale in Clarksville TN here.

Take a look at some of the benefits:

  • It's a community feeling. You get to know your neighbors and tend to be more involved in the neighborhood. Some offer monthly activities and events.
  • Pools, walking trails, gyms, game rooms, clubhouses, playgrounds are found in condo communities. Some have a lot, some very few.
  • You own your condo or townhome and can decorate inside anyway you desire.
  • Your HOA monthly fee covers certain services and maintenance items for the grounds and exterior upkeep. 
  • This helps you keep a budget better because the HOA should have reserve funds to handle exterior repairs and they get bids to get the work done.
  • Exterior grounds, trash pick up, exterior building maintenance and common grounds are maintained through HOA management.
  • You can volunteer to be on the Board. It is governed by the homeowners.
  • Some buyers feel they have more security because homes are close together. This can make it easier to travel with less worry.
  • Prices are generally less than single family homes. 

Why Buyers Choose Buying Condos and Townhomes in Clarksville TN

It can be a very smart purchase for a buyer. They are not restricted to just first time buyers, couples, single buyers, downsizing buyers but I have seen senior buyers, single parents and those transitioning to another phase of their lives want condo living. It is a more care-free lifestyle.

Good morning, Debbie Reynolds I wish we had new condo/townhouse communities other than 55+ and affordable housing.... tough getting that through the boards...

Good morning Debbie.  Buyers considering a Clarksville TN townhome or condo should give you a call.

Debbie, you are well versed in the condo and townhome segment in the Clarksville TN market. Buyers and sellers are working with the best when they enlist your expertise.

We once carefully calculated the cost of maintaining the condos vs. SFH. No surprise, condos end up costing a little less.

it, actually, should be no surprise. You have maintenance team working every day. Things are being taken care of as they come, and cost per unit or per sq. ft. is less because of the sheer number of units. Plus, there are engineers involved, so the right things are done, no overlooked. It is only when you do some chores for your home yourself, that you get some benefit, but the older you get, the more difficult it gets.

And, of course, affordability is a huge factor in our Daytona Beach area. I wouldn't ever able to live in a beach house, but I live in a condo on the beach.

Debbie, it is a decision, when to downsize and live in a property where you have no exterior maintenance.  Great post.

Hi Debbie Reynolds - Great reasons why one might want to enjoy living in a condo or townhome. Price point can also be a determining factor.
