Which type of dwelling is right for you?

Single-Family Home | Townhome | Condominium

Condos: Everything You Need to Know

Condos typically cost less than single-family homes and require less upkeep. However, be mindful of potential issues and more stringent borrowing rules.

What Is a Townhome?

If you're seeking a more affordable option than a standalone single-family home and are okay with having neighbors close by, a townhouse could be a good choice for you.

Is a Single-Family Home Right for You?

The single-family home is what most people traditionally think of as a "home": four walls, a roof, and your own yard - white picket fence optional.
