Townhouse vs single family houseIdeally, i am looking to buy a single family house with a nice backyard, front yard and a garage. But due to higher prices and other reasons townhouses sound a more appropriate choice. I want suggestions from experts as well those who have had the experience of home buying. Is it a good idea to buy a townhouse now, pay it off in some years and then buy a nicer house or buy a single family house now since its price will be higher in the future anyway? Which is a smarter decision and why?Will appreciate your time and effort.
