is citation builders near river mark or shapell new homes near milpitas town center

Hi,
we are 1st time home buyers and are confused wheather we should go for shapell new home snear milpitas town ceneter or citaion builders new homes near River mark. The river mark place is better but the homes there have tandem garage and very small garage door.And all you see are are houses. In mipits there is a great view of hills with a hiking trail nd lots of parks and shopping complex, restaurants close by. The sq feet area and price is same but rivermark place are townhomes style condos so we dont own the land whereas in shapell homes we own the land.

I don't like the smell in certain areas of Milpitas, and those flies really bother me too.

Rivermark is in airplane flight path. Are you bothered by the noise?

You can also consider other Milpitas Shapell townhouse that have little yard in the back (for example, my office listing 2064 Monte Ct). The new homes don't have yard. Owning the land doesn't add much value (what can you do with it?) but having a yard does.

h.o.a. and dues could also be a factor? The views will be a good selling point if or when you decide to resale. Are the condos two story three story and will you get tired of stair climbing and moving furniture can be a hassle also.
