Houston Townhomes Defined

Townhomes for sale in Houston are individually owned structures that share a wall with a neighbor. When you own a townhome, you own the land from the center of the earth to infinity in addition to owning your structure.

Townhomes differ from single family homes (or patio homes) as they share a wall. They are similar in that they own the land.

Townhomes different from condos (highrise or midrise condos) in that if you buy a condo, you own the airspace and a fractional ownership of the complex. With the townhome, you have direct ownership of the land / dirt upon which the structure resides.

Many people prefer townhomes as they have some of the benefits of the single family homes and some of the benefits of a condo.

Benefits of owning a townhome:

  • Price: Construction costs are usually less expensive than a single family home (as you share a wall) and they often give you more livable space for your money.
  • Location: Most of the townhomes that have been built in Houston over the past decade are in locations offering easy access to Downtown, The Galleria and the Medical Center.
  • Reduced maintenance: In most cases, common areas (shared gate, landscaping, water features, etc.) are maintained by the HOA.
  • Lower HOA fees: Compared to Houston condos, most Houston townhomes have a substantially lower HOA fee.

 

Drawbacks of owning a townhome (compared to single family homes):

  • Shared wall (you live closer to your neighbor).
  • Many townhomes have some kind of an HOA fee (most single family homes do not).

Drawbacks of owning a townhome (compared to a condo):

  • Fewer amenities than you’ll typically find with a highrise/midrise condo (condos often include pools, fitness centers, larger common areas, porters, valet parking. etc.)
  • With a townhome, you are responsible for maintaining the exterior of your structure.  Exterior structures are maintained by the HOA in a condo.

Houston townhouses are great as they serve as a “middle-ground” between single-family homes and condominiums because of the trade-offs – less expensive than single-family homes and has more privacy than condominiums or apartments.
