Choosing a Central Phoenix Townhome

DSC_0010Are you thinking about relocating to Central Phoenix? If you are either moving into Central Phoenix or just looking to move into another home then you’ve come to the right place for guidance and expertise. Roberta Candelaria has been practicing real estate since 2004 and is a renowned realtor in Central Phoenix. With her help and that of her team at Phoenix Urban Spaces, you will be moving into your new home sooner than you would expect! When looking to lease or purchase a new home, you have many options to choose from. Some may prefer a condominium, others may want a home with a huge backyard and then there is also the option of a townhouse.  You may ask what makes a townhouse a townhouse? What is the difference between a condo and a townhome? A townhome usually shares a wall with neighboring buildings. When owning a condominium you generally own the space within your walls, and when owning a townhome you own the unit and land beneath it. Townhomes are also accompanied by typical single-family home amenities such as an attached garage and maybe a small backyard. If you don’t want to rent anymore, but you can’t quite afford your own home yet, then a townhouse might be the perfect solution. When choosing a Central Phoenix townhome, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself first and decide on what you need and what you are looking for in your future home. Here is a helpful guide put together by Roberta and her staff to help assist you in your future home search.


  • How Big Of A Home Do You Need?

Regardless of the type of real estate you are looking to purchase, you always need to know how much room you are going to need. Are you single? Married? Do you have kids? Do you need extra office space or a guest room? You can’t just pick a home and hope for the best, you need to make sure that when you choose your Central Phoenix townhome that it will meet your day to day needs and that you will feel comfortable and at home.


  • Do You Need A Backyard?

The good thing about a townhome is that they usually come with an attached garage and a small patio. You won’t get a huge backyard with a lot of space if you buy a townhome, but it is likely that you will have a small patio or a small backyard. This is perfect for individuals who enjoy spending some time outdoors or those who own pets and don’t like to keep them locked inside all day.


  • Do You Want To Be Close To Any Specific Areas?

East TempeWhen you are conducting your home search, be aware of how close or far your potential dream home is from your work, school, grocery store or hair salon. Location is always key and sometimes it’s not worth saving that little bit of money by living further away from where you spend the majority of your time. You will end up spending more on gas and commuting anyway. Also be aware of the surrounding area and whether it fits your lifestyle. If you are a private person who enjoys peace and quiet, then a townhome smack in the middle of Downtown is probably not a good fit. However, if you do enjoy the hustle and bustle of a busy city and you want to be near prime shopping, dining and entertainment then Downtown Phoenix will be a perfect fit!

  • Are You Looking For A Primary Residence, Vacation Home Or Investment Opportunity?

What will be the purpose of your new townhome and what will you primarily use it for. Will it be a primary residence? Will you use it as a vacation home only a few weeks out of the year? Are you looking for a property to invest in and lease out for extra income? The answers to these questions may affect how you choose a Central Phoenix townhome. If you are using it as a vacation home, who will take care of the home while you are away? If you are investing in property and leasing it out, will you as the landlord be available to your tenants if they need repairs, assistance or any other services?
