Research the area you are interested in- this is very important, as many homeowners often overlook this step and end up in a neighborhood that doesn’t fit their needs or lifestyle. Is the neighborhood close to schools and shops? Will your work commute be shorter or longer? These are just some of the questions you should ask when shopping for a townhouse.

Get pre-approved for a mortgage- before looking for a townhouse, it is a good idea to know how much you can spend. Getting pre-approved for a mortgage will give you an idea of what you can afford and allow you to act quickly once you find a townhouse you like and want to make an offer.

Visit the townhouses- allow our experts to show you available properties.  Take a careful look at the townhouse’s features and amenities. Find out what you will and won’t be responsible for and if there are any additional fees.

Learn the community rules and understand the maintenance obligations- many townhouse communities have a set of rules that homeowners need to follow. Finding out after you purchase your townhome that you cannot add a garden or shed can lessen the home ownership experience.
