We used to live in (owned) a townhouse! It was a townhouse condo, so there were condo fees. Check the rules/what’s included in the fees. Some limit what you can have on your house (tv dishes, etc) or require specific design features like doors or house color, etc. Some will cover external things like roof and siding, and others you will be responsible for those things if they needed fixing. We didn’t have to do lawn maintenance, which was great, but still paid for our individual utilities. We only had one garage, so we had to rotate vehicles (one in the garage, one on the pad in front). Visitor parking was very limited, but guests could park on the main street then walk over if they needed to. Our fire/smoke detectors were connected to the neighboring unit so if theirs went off, so did ours and vice versa. We had a good neighbour on the connecting/shared wall side, so that was good. There were a lot of stairs in our unit, which was fine for us, but maybe not for everyone. Overall we liked it, but it’s super dependent on the people around you and the rules, fees, etc.
