Guide to Houston Townhomes

Located within Houston's most popular neighborhoods, townhomes are one of the fastest growing housing types in the Bayou city.

Looking at Houstons's best-performing housing segments, Townhomes are among the fastest-growing housing segments in the city.

New construction townhomes and townhouses in the "Under $250K" and "Under $500K" categories are spurring this growth. The appeal of owning a townhome stems from its smaller footprint, minimal maintenance, and affordability (vs. single-family homes).

Growing demand sparked townhome development within Houston's hottest neighborhoods, including EaDo, Rice Military, Montrose, Midtown, Camp Logan, and the Houston Heights area.

There is a wide variety of Houston townhomes for sale, with prices depending on location, home size, and age of the home.

Houston Townhomes Defined

Townhomes are mostly attached homes that share a wall with a neighbor. Owning a townhome is similar to single-family homeownership, 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 are a mix of the benefits of a single-family home and the benefits of a condo. It is, however, not without its downsides.

Pros of Living in a Townhome

Primary Cons of Living in a Townhouse

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.
