Grand Forks Luxury Condos and Townhomes
When you’re choosing Grand Forks Townhomes, you should always be thinking about your ideal privacy goals, homeowner association implications, amenities that may be included through your homeowner association, the unit placement in relation to the other units, and the total cost of ownership.
Grand Forks Townhomes and Privacy
The Townhomes in Grand Forks all offer different levels of privacy. Some of the units are closer together, some have fences that separate the outdoor living spaces, and some are designed with state of the art sound proofing that makes you forget that you share a common wall with your neighbors.
If you’re looking for the most quiet and private options, I’d recommend look for a Grand Forks town home that is located on an end unit. By choosing a townhome that is located on an end unit, you’ll only share the one common wall with your neighbor, and more than likely have more privacy options outside as well.
I’d also suggest taking a tour of a few of the town homes that you’re considering and see if you can hear anything next door when the neighbors are home. Many builders know that privacy is a major concern for potential buyers and have taken extra steps to keep the noise that you might hear to a minimum.
Some of the townhomes that are located in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks offer additional amenities that are available to all members of the homeowners association. These can range from shared park spaces, to recreational areas on the property. It never hurts to ask what else is included when you’re a member of the homeowners association, you might be surprised what extra perks are included.
Unit placement of your Grand Forks Townhome is another very important consideration when narrowing down your selection. Similar to how different unit placement can have an effect on your privacy, unit placement can also effect other factors that should be considered.
One of the Main considerations here in the Grand Forks Real Estate market is the energy costs for heating and cooling your home. The placement of your unit can have a major impact on your heating bills. It’s pretty much the complete opposite from making a unit choice based on privacy. When you’re looking to save on your energy costs, choosing an internal unit that has neighbors on both sides can dramatically reduce your energy costs because you’re effectively insulated from the cold air and wind blowing on both sides of your unit.
Townhouse Association Fees
This is always one of the first things I tell my clients to consider. The association fees can vary between different Grand Forks Townhome developments. Since this will be part of your monthly costs of ownership, it’s important to add this to your mortgage payment when deciding on a budget for your Townhome.
The extra expense from being part of the association is typically accepted very well since it’s what allows you to stay nice an warm in the winter time while someone else worries about blowing your snow, and also staying cool during hot summer days while your grass and landscaping is being manicured for you.
Besides taking care of the outdoor snow and grass maintenance the association also makes sure that the units are being maintained properly and any preventative maintenance is being completed on a schedule.
This might mean that you’re assessed a portion of a roof repair/replacement or siding replacement down the road. This is actually a good thing. Your Grand Forks Townhome is a great investment. Demand is higher than ever and you’re likely to see appreciation at a higher than normal pace. If your neighbors didn’t have the association keeping track of regular maintence and upkeep of the Townhome development, you could end up with an ugly duckling next door that is an eyesore and also could effect the value of your home down the road.
As you can see, there are many considerations when choosing Grand Forks Townhomes and the can have a major impact on your experience and satisfaction in your home. Doing a little research ahead of time can make all the difference.
