If you’re in the market for a new custom Florida home and frustrated over fluctuating inventory and rising prices, consider a townhome rather than a single-family home.
There are many reasons why townhome living can be a great answer. As Florida’s largest residential builder, we at ICI Homes include townhomes in some of our own master-planned communities, and often build them in communities where we’re a preferred builder.
Why are townhomes such a good choice in today’s hot real estate market? Lower costs may be the foremost reason, but it’s not the only one. We’ll explain below, plus tell you where to find ICI Homes’ townhomes.
A good value
Today’s townhomes offer two- and three-bedroom and multiple-bathroom layouts with one- and two-level configurations. Although you share one or two walls with neighbors, townhomes are individually owned and offer single-family staples such as full garages.
The above attributes also make townhome pricing more attractive than standalone single-family housing. Along with their wall-sharing component, they’re not built on a separate lot, which lowers costs because buyers must purchase a lot for a single-family home.
Another factor? Builders commonly build townhomes in multiples of two to four units, meaning those units usually can be completed in a similar time frame — a win in today’s high-demand market.
ICI Homes’ townhome floor plans include open living spaces and flex space — a room that can be a home office, activity area or additional bedroom. And, all ICI Homes floor plans come with a covered lanai for outdoor living space.
Easier to maintain
No taste or time for cleaning out gutters? Lawn mowing? Exterior paining? Then a townhome might be the perfect solution. Because of the shared exteriors and common areas, much or all that maintenance is done for you, usually as part of your homeowners association dues. This may vary by community, so be sure to talk to an ICI Homes Online Sales Counselor for all the details.
All you need to keep up with is interior maintenance — and you might even require a smaller vacuum cleaner, few supplies and much less cleaning time!
Less exterior home maintenance means more time for things you want to do. This lock-up-and-go aspect of townhome living is a big draw for active adults, retirees, singles and young families who usually have plenty on their plates.
Travel, hobbies and family time become easier with a more carefree townhome lifestyle.
