Depending on where you live in the greater Houston area, it seems like there are new residential buildings being built every day. Tons of newly-constructed homes are being listed for sale across the metroplex, ready for their first residents to move in. Many of these new buildings are townhomes, a style of house that is becoming more popular with young families everyday. Townhomes have massive amounts of appeal among millennials in 2024, but why are they becoming so popular? Let’s learn more about the advantages that townhomes offer compared to other homes and why you should consider moving into one.

Townhomes Are Conveniently Located in Urban Areas

If you’ve ever wondered why they’re called “townhomes,” it’s all in the name! Townhomes are typically located in densely populated urban areas and can be found on many of America’s city streets. Many young adults seek them out because of their close proximity to downtown areas in cities, which is where a majority of them work and run errands. Anyone who has lived in Houston knows that traffic can get a little crazy from time to time; living in a townhome close to work can drastically reduce your commute time, especially if you travel to and from the suburbs outside of the city. 

More Space = More Room for Growing Families

While townhomes don’t offer the same amount of space as a traditional home, they often have more square footage than the average apartment, making them desirable to people looking to start a family. Most townhomes also feature a 3-floor layout, which greatly maximizes the amount of space that townhomes occupy. Plus, depending on the townhome you move to, they also feature 2 car garages and private yards to give you more space to call your own.

Community-Style Living Is The Perfect Option for Young Socialites
