For those whose budget won't stretch far enough to buy a house but don't want compromise on location, a townhouse can be a great alternative.
But before you start looking at townhouses for sale you may want to consider the advantages and disadvantages of buying a townhouse. If you want a house without all the maintenance then a townhouse is for you, townhouses are usually smaller inside and out which make them easier to maintain. Townhouses however often provide less privacy due to proximity to neighbours and shared walls. Some townhouses, not all, are also living within a common-interest development in which a body corporate governs decisions related to property maintenance and exterior property changes.
To find the ideal townhouse, don't rush into buying, take your time to look at the many townhouses for sale before making your final purchase decision.
