Amenities You’ll Love in a Townhome Rental vs Apartment

Apartments are the answer for many individuals. The best ones check off all the boxes for location, affordability, and amenities. However, some renters outgrow their apartments over time. After a few years, it’s quite common for the average apartment dweller to amass more possessions and/or require space for more than one or two individuals. Yet, homeownership may be too much of an expense.

So what’s the solution for someone who needs more room than most apartments offer but doesn’t want to make the leap to buying a home?
That’s easy: Townhome rentals! Townhomes combine all of the accommodating space of a home and many exclusive amenities that are not typically found in most apartments. If you’re trying to determine which scenario is right for you (townhome rental vs apartment rental), let us highlight some of the many perks of renting a townhome!

What is a Townhome?

Before we explore the many benefits of renting a townhome, let’s take a look at the definition of the townhome. Also known as townhouses, townhomes are multilevel rental properties with floor plans and layouts that are similar in design to single-family homes. Though monthly rental prices are slightly higher than the typical apartment (but still more cost-effective than buying a house), townhomes offer you much more space and an array of upgraded amenities that are typically not found in apartments or condos.

Heritage Greene Townhome Amenities and Benefits

While most apartments do offer residents a host of amenities (especially the apartments currently available from Heritage Property Rentals), space constraints may limit the number of available perks inside and outside of each apartment. Since townhomes have multiple levels and share many similarities with single-family homes, they not only office more spacious floor plans, they also provide a number of exclusive amenities that are traditionally not available at most apartment rentals.

Heritage Greene pet-friendly townhomes are available in roomy 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom floor plans and feature the following in-home and community amenities:
Spacious finished basements that are perfect for remote work/learning spaces, entertaining, game rooms, play areas, guest bedrooms, and more living space options:

  • In-unit washer and dryers for your laundry needs
