Should I Rent An Apartment Or A Townhouse in Greenwood?

After a tough decision, you figured out that you should rent your next home in Greenwood. Now you have another daunting problem: should you rent an apartment or townhouse in Greenwood?

While you can scope out a spacious 2-bedroom or a 3-bedroom apartment in Greenwood, you could go for the privacy of a townhouse. After all, a townhouse is almost always guaranteed to have separate entryways, a personal parking spot, and two or more levels. But those townhouse perks usually come with an increase in rent.

Read on for a few key factors to think about so you can make a good decision.

Townhomes Usually Cost More To Rent Than Apartments

While you don’t have any concrete rules regarding rents, townhomes will generally be higher per month. Living in a townhouse, you will probably have a small yard in both the front and back along with a connected garage. Townhomes also use a two- or three-story floor plan.

On the other hand, you can find many apartments side by side within a larger structure. Your apartment may have an outside patio or balcony, but there’s not a private entrance. Those townhouse advantages of a garage, yard, and distance from neighbors might result in a larger rent. 

Get Multiple Floors With Your Townhome 

Space considerations are relatively straightforward when comparing an apartment or townhouse in Greenwood. For example, 800 square feet is 800 square feet in both living options. And it's not unusual to discover some apartments that have more floor space than a townhouse. But, apartments will usually use a one-floor floor plan. In contrast, a townhome will use either 2 or 3 levels.

The different floors allow for more privacy and no upstairs neighbors. With separate levels, it can be easier to distinguish what is your living space and what’s your private level. For example, you can hang out on the main level after the early birds go to bed on the upper floor. And if your office is at home, you can set up an office space on the lower level while your top floor becomes a no work zone.

Both Get All The Community Amenities

Townhomes are going to come equipped with washer/dryer hookups. Some apartments may also come equipped with hookups like their townhouse cousins. Other apartment units have a washer and dryer already installed, and some have community laundry rooms instead. Your townhome might also have more closet space and has a better chance for features like a bay window.

Apartment complex amenities come included for any type of unit you get. You'll receive entry to the pool, gym, and everything else the overall community has for its Residents. And every unit gets maintenance services and regular appliances, too.

Privacy May Be the Deciding Factor On Apartment vs. Townhome in Greenwood

Common walkways are an ordinary part of apartment living. This might be a great method to greet your neighbors, but you might want to circumvent a shared walkway. Townhomes are individual units akin to a house , down to having private backyard areas, allowing you to do meet and greets on your own terms.

Both townhouses and apartments use common walls, but a lot of apartments share a floor, ceiling, or both. You'll want to be more conscious about sound when you’re in an apartment. The lack of sound from floors and ceilings in a townhouse may also seem like the best pet-friendly option.
