Both townhomes and single family homes resale very well in Mars. Mars is a growing area with quick access to schools, shopping and all major highways. Your life style and budget would be a major factor as to which to purchase. Townhouses usually have a monthly maintenance fee in addition to your mortgage payment. This fee takes care of lawn cutting, mulch, snow removal etc. Some townhomes are in a community with ammentities, for instance pools, tennis courts, basketball courts. Although single family homes can have a homeowners association dues there are not as high as those of a townhouse. SIngle Family homes are responsible for there own lawn mowing, mulch, snow removal etc. With the growth of businesses in the community you cannot go wrong either way. I have been selling homes in the Mars area for many years. I would be happy to assist you with your home search. Please contact me with any further questions you may have.
