Benefits of renting a Houston townhome (vs. apartments or condos)
- More privacy. Renting a condo usually means you have neighbors above, below, and on either side. Townhomes only share a wall (or two, in the case of middle units) and each have their own private entrances and parking spaces.
- More space. Renting a townhome offers more space spread out over two or more stories. The extra square footage and utilities will cost a bit more compared to apartments or condos, but if your budget allows it, the extra leg room is definitely worth it.
- Amenities. A townhome offers amenities close to those in single-family homes. Laundry rooms, garages, patios, and media rooms are often built in, as opposed to sharing common building amenities with other tenants within an apartment or condo complex. Some townhome communities also offer controlled access and manned entrances, central park areas, and swimming pools.
There are some downsides when renting a Houston townhouse, including maintenance and HOA fees. It is important to know what your (your landlord’s) maintenance responsibilities are, and the things covered by your HOA fees.

Townhomes are mostly attached homes that share a wall with a neighbor. Owning a townhome is similar to single-family home ownership, wherein you own the land (from the center of the earth to infinity) plus the structure.
Single-family homes and patio homes are typically detached – meaning there are setbacks at all sides – while townhomes typically share a wall (or two) with their neighbors.
Condos and lofts on the other hand also share walls, but don’t own the land. They instead share ownership of common areas and the building itself, plus the airspace. With a townhome, you own the dirt upon which the structure stands.
The benefits of owning a townhome is a mix of the benefits of a single-family home and the benefits of a condo. It is, however, not without its downsides.
- Price. Compared to their single-family home counterparts, townhomes are typically less expensive. Construction costs are lower (as you share a wall) while giving more livable space for your money.
- Lock-and-leave lifestyle. Some of the most expensive Houston townhomes are located within gated communities, which often feature 24-hour security and lawn maintenance.
- Location. Most townhomes built in the last decade are within Houston’s best (and most accessible) neighborhoods.
- Reduced maintenance. Common areas, community amenities, and landscaping are usually maintained by the HOA.
- Community amenities. Some townhomes are within gated communities that offer great communities amenities, including water features, central park areas, additional parking, swimming pools, and controlled access.
- Lower HOA fees. Compared to Houston condos, most townhomes in Houston have substantially lower HOA fees.
- Shared wall. As you share a wall with your neighbor, you live closer to them.
- HOA fees. Many townhomes are subject to HOA fees that cover landscaping, common area maintenance, and security.
- Fewer amenities. Compared to living in a luxury high-rise, living in a townhouse typically offers less amenities. Houston condos often feature fitness rooms, tennis courts, swimming pools, meeting/business centers, and party rooms.
- Exterior maintenance. There is some maintenance involved in owning a townhome, including the exteriors of your home. Exteriors are typically maintained by the HOA in a condo.
Houston townhouses offer a great “middle-ground” option between single-family homes and condominiums. There are a few trade offs, but what makes them great options is that they are less expensive than single-family homes and offer more privacy than condominiums or lofts.
