For many people, buying a townhouse is a straightforward matter of economics. Because smaller residences and lots often have more accessible starting prices, they're easier to afford on a budget, which makes them great for residents who plan on starting families. These properties also cater to the needs of those who might be unsure about where their careers will lead or how long they're going to stay in one place.
Of course, this doesn't mean that Edmonton's townhomes are plain or cheap. They come in a wide variety of styles and designs, so buyers are just as likely to find luxury dwellings as they are to discover first-time homebuyer accommodations. Smart consumers always favour properties that are within their budget ranges, but townhomes and duplexes in more upscale areas are still fairly solid investments that promise handsome returns.
Choosing the Perfect Townhome
What makes the right duplex or townhouse for a given buyer? There are a number of key considerations, so it's best to judge based on amenities and location instead of individual feature price tags. For instance, an investment property with new countertops may fetch lots of interest in a future sale. Someone with growing kids, however, might find it wiser to put their money into a home with an extra room. Since the duplexes and townhouses here differ by neighbourhood and community, finding distinctive core amenities isn't a huge challenge.
Real estate in some neighbourhoods simply costs more per square foot, and the expensive duplexes and triplexes aren't necessarily all located downtown. Living in a posh community at the outskirts of town beyond Anthony Henday Drive might be just as expensive as purchasing a residence along the North Saskatchewan River in the middle of the city, especially considering commuting costs.
Getting Started on the Right Foot
Putting in research is always the first step to finding the right stacked townhouse, side-by-side duplex, condo or other residence. Learning about the options helps buyers make more educated decisions and come to understand what their purchasing power is really worth. Find out what to expect from a new Edmonton townhouse or duplex by checking out some of the listings here. There are many different options if you’re looking for a townhome in Edmonton. Townhouses are usually connected side by side, reminiscent of European row houses. Due to the decreased possibility of noise transfer, townhomes that only share one wall with a neighbour are generally the most desirable.
The Benefits of Buying Edmonton Duplexes
Duplexes are great first homes for Edmonton residents as well as being good investment properties for buyers looking to have a convenient rental opportunity. While it is possible to buy one half of a duplex, some buyers opt to buy both sides so that they can live in one unit and rent out the other to help pay down their mortgage faster.
Often duplexes are cheaper than purchasing a comparable single family dwelling so they can be an ideal first home. However, due to maintenance of the yard and outside of the building, duplexes require more upkeep than a condo or townhome property.

We couldn't have had a better, stress free experience with Chris. He took the time to understand what we wanted out of the sale of our home, and weighed it against what was being dictated by the market and neighborhood at the time. We had an offer within a week and days later our home was sold. Chris and his team were professional and personable. He was diligent with communicating with us during the entire process. We referred him to our parents, who had the same great experience. Chris has become our life long realtor and we really appreciate everything he's done for our family.
