There is nothing more stressful or exciting than purchasing your first home. For many people, it is a time of adventure but for others, it can be scary deciding whether or not you’re ready.
Here are some reasons to consider purchasing a single-family home.
1. Space – If you’re an expanding family or have children, a townhome or condo won’t provide the same space as a single-family home – not only inside but also outside. Condos and townhomes rarely come with a yard. A single-family home is situated on its own lot with its own yard.
2. Privacy – A single-family home is the most private residency, you will not share any walls with your neighbours (unless you have a rental suite in your house, which is a bonus source of income). You will have your own yard and won’t have to worry about neighbours using your space.
3. Long Term Investment – Single-family homes are the longest investment you will make in your life, and generally, you can sell your home for a profit if it is well maintained.
4. Variety – A single-family home offers more variety than a townhouse or condo. If you want a specific number of bathrooms or bedrooms, a playroom or a walk-in pantry there are options that will include your preferences. There is also more variety in the floorplan which means that finding a layout that suits your needs is higher than the standardized layouts for condos or townhomes.
