When you search for townhomes, select the picks Townhouse and Attached/Row to obtain the best results. If you select only Townhouse or only Attached/Row, you may be missing some listing results.
What’s the difference? Here are the descriptions for both these picks:
Rowhouses are freehold, residential properties that are attached on one or two sides, often found in older neighbourhoods. These units do not have a condo corporation, therefore no condo fees are associated with this property; the owner is responsible for the maintenance inside and outside of their property.
Townhouses are residential properties having two or more floors and attached to other similar units via common walls. They can also be “two on a lot” homes without subdividing the land nor attaching the houses, as there are many townhomes that are not built “all in a row” but rather as four or six around a centre courtyard. Townhouses are often used in both planned unit developments and condominium developments. A townhouse may or may not be a condo, and have associated fees.
