Billings, Montana is a great place to live, and there are plenty of reasons to look for new homes in the area, from the friendly vibes, growing business opportunities, and plenty of outdoor recreation and craft beer. However, all the great things the city has to offer doesn’t really matter if you don’t enjoy the space that you are living in. Some feel comfortable enough in apartments, others enjoy the extra space offered by a single-family home. But what about townhomes? Townhomes are typically the ideal solution for those who want to upgrade from an apartment but maybe aren’t quite ready to purchase a home. They offer more of a “home” environment compared to your typical apartments and are built in a vertical design, usually containing multiple floors, a private entrance, and even a small outdoor space but still share walls with neighbors and are located generally in urban/suburban areas.
The Benefits of Living In A Billings, MT Townhome
At McCall Homes, we know that there are benefits to many different types of homes, from single-family homes to townhomes to cottages and patio homes. That’s why our master-planned residential communities offer a variety of home styles and types. With the recent increase in popularity townhomes have received, though, we wanted to share some of the most enticing features that our townhomes for sale in Billings, MT offers.
One of the essential advantages of townhome living is that they typically require less maintenance, especially when compared to a single-family home. When you choose to live in a townhome, you can forget about having to mow the lawn, shovel snow from the driveway, and other tedious maintenance tasks. If you are someone who has better things to do other than maintenance, a townhouse may be the best option for you.
Generally, the cost of a townhome is less expensive than the cost of purchasing a single-family home. Those who don’t want to make the large payments for a home may want to consider a townhome. With townhomes, you get to obtain the feeling of living in a conventional home without paying a high price. This makes it an ideal option for a family or a couple wishing to live in a larger space than an apartment but still retain most — and even more — of the benefits.
Because of their vertical design, townhomes take up less space than regular, detached homes, which is why they are typically located in urban/suburban areas, where space would otherwise be too small for a single-family home. Most townhomes are located near restaurants, shops, public transportation, and other great attractions.
Your Own Green Space
There have been numerous studies that have revealed that green space can positively affect human psyche. Really, green space translates to any natural area that may create a relaxing environment, and for most people, this is their backyard. With apartments, you don’t get a backyard of any kind. But with our townhomes in Annafeld, you get a backyard patio or spacious, private covered balcony that you can make into your own relaxing space.
A Great Community
When you live in a townhome, especially like the ones in our new home community in Billings, MT, you get access to all of the community amenities, such as playgrounds, walking trails, community events, and so much more. You see, how we live matters, and master-planned communities like Annafeld create a lifestyle that promotes interaction with other residents and active living. It’s no surprise then that we hear such great stories of neighbors in our townhome community becoming life-long friends!
Extra Income Potential
Townhomes typically have two or three bedrooms, and if you don’t plan on using all of those rooms, you could always rent out the extra room to potential tenants. Additionally, if there ever comes a time when you need to move, townhouses offer a huge rental opportunity. Potential tenants are likely to be more open to renting a townhouse with a homeowner’s association established because it creates nearly a no-maintenance environment for them. Renting a single-family home, on the other hand, still comes with the responsibilities of ownership.
As you can see, if you are searching for a new home, a townhome is certainly worth considering! Especially, when it comes to our townhouses for sale in Billings, MT. We have new townhomes in both of our master-planned communities, Josephine Crossing and Annafeld. Many of our townhomes come with their own detached or tuck under garage and semi-private backyard patio or balcony, and homeowners get to enjoy the same benefits of the neighborhood and all the McCall Homes’ fabulous home features.
