Townhouses, like condominiums, had a slow start in St Louis, however have gained in popularity over the past few years. Townhouse buyers are often prior home owners that are looking for a different type of lifestyle but are not quite ready for a condo as they still desire the look and feel of a house. Many townhouses are either condominiums ore in subdivisions where at least some exterior maintenance is included in the association fees.
Buying a townhouse is quite different than buying a home. If the townhouse part of a condominium association, the financial strength of the condominium association should be reviewed to assess the possibility of being hit with a special assessment after buying. If the townhouse ownership is fee-simple, like a detached home, the financial strength of the subdivision association should be reviewed as well as the existence of, and sufficiency of, a shared wall agreement as well as easements and other agreements that may be needed to assure proper access for maintenance and improvements in the future.
