Whether you’re buying your first property or downsizing from an existing home, you’re likely to face the decision of what style of housing to purchase.
Ultimately, the dwelling you settle on will determine the lifestyle you enjoy for years to come. When you understand the benefits between townhouses and free-standing homes, you can make a more informed decision about what’s right for you.
What is it that you want from your property? Is it expansive outdoor spaces to enjoy the sunshine? Or, maybe you’re happy with any space providing it complements your minimalist attitude? You might even have strong opinions about neighbours and how likely you are to hear them as you potter around your abode.

This will give you a better understanding of the best type of dwelling to facilitate that.
