When you are offered a home from an Austin real estate company, you will find that there are plenty of housing styles that you can select from. Austin real estate homes can be of single-family or townhouse/condo unit styles. They can also be of single-story or multiple-story types. Each of these styles of home has both pros and cons so it’s up to you to decide what’s best for you personally or for your family.
A single-family home will offer you a quieter and a more private place. It also provides ample space for you to garden. The disadvantage, however, is that it is a lot more expensive and will require more maintenance.
Choosing a townhouse or condo unit will cost you significantly less than a single-family home. What’s great about this is that it is usually gated with security systems in place. Plus, there can be no outdoor or yard maintenance on your part. Nevertheless, it can be pretty noisy and you have less privacy because you get to share common walls, floors and ceilings with your neighbors.
Then, we have another set of housing style based on the number of stories of the house. The single story house has the major advantage of providing easy access for wheelchair-bound individuals and those suffering from weak or arthritic knees. With only one level, maintenance is a total breeze. The disadvantage, though, is that there is less space for the whole family.
Multiple-story homes, like those having two to three floors, will offer more living space for the family. Because areas can be separated, some family members can go about entertaining downstairs while kids can go studying upstairs. The problem with this is that you will be required laborious trips up and down the stairs. Keeping the house clean will usually require greater effort.
