Keith Evans, a fulltime real estate professional in Fairfield County, CT, specializes in new construction and townhomes, is presenting a new series of articles highlighting today’s townhome as an investment and lifestyle choice.
Bethel, CT, August 20, 2014 -(PressReleasePoint)- “Purchasing a new home is always exciting” says Keith Evans, a fulltime real estate professional in Fairfield County, CT. “When considering the purchase of a townhome, there is an extra layer of criteria that needs to be assessed before making the commitment and putting down the deposit.”
“Why?” he continues. “All townhome communities are different and each one comes with a special set of decisions that have to be made in order to assess whether or not the community is for you. He continues, “Each month, I will bring you information regarding a different aspect of today’s popular townhome lifestyle. So, no matter where you’re planning to purchase your next home, I hope this new series of articles will help you better understand this very exciting, and ever expanding, home category.”
He says to ask the questions that are important to you. “Do you enjoy being with family and friends? Do you want more free time, lead an active lidestyle, close access to cultural and sporting events, recreational activities, shopping and quality schools? Are you focused on resale value? All of these questions are valid and should be taken into consideration. It’s not just about the tiles in the bathroom and paint on the walls anymore.”
“Plus, there is a new truth,” says Evans. “Townhomes are not just for seniors who want to downsize anymore. Many growing families, young couples and even singles are also looking for that easier, maintenance-free lifestyle in an upscale environment. Choosing the right townhome is a very personal decision that will affect how you enjoy your life.”
n his upcoming series of articles, he will discuss anything and everything, from the advantages of a roomy and open floor plan, to the surrounding gardens, noise protection, rules of the community, privacy, amenities and even esthetic features such as fountains and rock walls. He will help you look more deeply at what goes into defined indoor and outdoor spaces, safety features and green living. He will address how these specific features will, or won’t, affect resale value. And his personal favorite, the delights of maintenance-free living and what you should be looking for within your contract.
Most importantly, he will phrase questions you can take to your realtor when considering a townhome purchase: like the differences between standard features and offered upgrades including kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures. He will go into detail about what features are worth the extra cost and what options you should expect to be offered when making a purchase. He may even interview a carpenter, a member of that age-old profession whose job is to make sure the details of a new home are created with quality materials… and will be a source of pride long after move-in day.
A great location is key.
“I am personally inspired by the concept of location,” say Evans. “For example, in Connecticut, where I live and work, many of the towns date back to the 1600′s, have enviable school systems, and are governed to protect the residents and businesses that reside within their boundaries. Not all townships are alike, and so it logically follows that the townhome communities within that township are not alike either. They must be compared and if I can help someone make the right decision for their family… well, that’s a good day’s work for me.”
