There are many choices of residences in Hollywood, Florida. Typically these include single family homes, town homes and condominiums. We have found, after many years selling Real Estate that lifestyle determines what type of home a homeowner chooses.
When one lives in a single family home, an owner is responsible for all maintenance including repairs and exterior landscaping. This upkeep can be costly and time-consuming. Of course, one can always turn to a service like Angie’s List in search of a reputable company. The downside to this is the costs that are inevitably involved.
And then there is condo life…
This type of lifestyle is appealing to the family that wishes to live an entirely independent life, free from all exterior maintenance and repairs. The negative aspect of this type of lodging is, well quite frankly, all around you. North, south, east and west you become one of many in an ant hill of homeowners.
Smack dab in the center of the above two alternatives is town home living.
The term, separate but equal comes to mind with this type of residence. Many town homes offer private exterior areas, as our recent listing detailed below. This allows the avid or wannabe gardener be to tinker among the foliage. The running expenses, which many time includes insurance, landscaping costs, amenities, roof repairs and water are shared expenses.
