Single family home will require for example for you to arrange everything....yard care, roof replacement, outside maintenance, etc. Townhomes you're paying someone else to do this. There will be more traffic and potentially noise...people coming and going in a townhome community. Single family might allow you more privacy.
The property that you are looking at is in a great townhome community in Bedford. As far as the difference between single family and Town homes really it is all about your lifestyle. With a single family home you will take care of the the home and have a yard, making this the traditional ownership experience. Many people who are busier these days are opting for town homes and condo's. A townhome still allows you the financial benefits of home ownership, however you are not resposible for maintaining the exterior of the unit or a yard. The HOA will handle these functions for you. I would love to talk with you more about these differences directly, please give me a call.
