Your Questions About Townhouses For Rent

Richard asks…

What are the pros and cons of building a townhouse vs. condo?

I am looking to build a townhouses to rent but I am wondering what is the difference between a condo and townhouse. I have been in both. Condos are bigger.

Administrator answers:

You’re mixing apples and oranges.

A townhouse is a type of structure. For example, you can have a single-family home, a duplex, a townhouse, or multi-family buildings (ie., apartments).

A condo is a type of ownership. For example, you can own your entire property outright. Or you can own a condo, in which you own the insides of your unit, and the outsides are commonly owned. Or you can own a co-op, in which case the co-op owns everything.

So: You can have a townhouse that’s a condo, or a townhouse you totally own, or a townhouse that’s part of a cooperative.

So you have two decisions to make: What type of structure to build, and what type of ownership will be conveyed to the purchasers.

Hope that helps.

Getting ready to rent out our townhouse?

I want to get a head start on preparing our two level townhouse for rent. This is going to be my first time so I need advice; should I concentrate on making the interior look “neutral” so that the renter can design/decorate however they please? Or should I spend a little extra money to put “style” in to the rooms?

Any advice/suggestions/links to helpful websites/books greatly appreciated.

Administrator answers:

The renter will rent your home according to their requirements. You don’t have to do any styling, however, you do have to make sure that there are no cracks and that all installations and services are working well. The renter should feel comfortable in your home and know that they will not have to face any termite, bed bugs, roaches, pests, leaks or moisture problems. Invest your money in ensuring your home is safe and comfortable rather than in styling it.
