Looking to simplify your lifestyle and have more time to do the things you love? Want to be able to lock and leave your home with ease? Modern townhome living can offer residents many great benefits from less maintenance to ideal urban locations near shopping, dining and recreation. Perhaps it's time to (re)consider the benefits of modern townhome living.
Meet your neighbors while walking your dog or at a neighborhood get-together. Townhome community design and shared space provide ample opportunities to foster new friendships and may offer a sense of security when you have close neighbors looking out for you and your home.
2) Less Maintenance
Imagine enjoying beautifully landscaped green space without lifting a finger and spending snowy days by the fireplace instead of shoveling the sidewalk. Townhome homeowners’ associations typically take care of maintenance such as snow removal and shared green spaces.
3) Lock-and-Go Lifestyle
Spend more time with family and friends, enjoying the area’s attractions and traveling to your favorite vacation spots. New townhomes offer a lock-and-go lifestyle that allows you spend more time doing what you love.
4) More Space Without the Hassles
Want more space than a condo but not the maintenance of a single family home? Get the best of both as townhomes can offer the square footage you are looking for without the hassles of maintenance.
5) Prime Locations
Townhome communities, especially in urban areas, often provide easy access to transportation, dining, shopping and nightlife. While you may not want the maintenance of a single family home in your ideal location, a modern new townhome can place you right where you want to be.
6) Healthier Lifestyle
Studies have shown that simply climbing several flights of stairs per day may have increased health benefits, including weight loss and improved cardiovascular fitness. While townhome elevators are very useful for bringing in groceries or entertaining on the rooftop terrace, embrace the stairs for added health benefits!
7) Flex Space to Fit Your Needs
Many townhomes offer optional loft levels or recreation rooms for added flex space. This space may be used for guests, as a library or home office. View Pinterest photos for loft and bonus room decorating ideas.
8) Amenities Without the Upkeep
Townhome communities often include resident amenities such as landscaped green space, children's play areas, clubhouse, fitness center, dog run, pool and more. These amenities not only offer recreation spaces without the upkeep, but also the opportunity to socialize with neighbors and get to know residents within your community.
9) Private Garage Parking
Many townhomes offer private garage parking where you can park in your garage and step right into your home. No need to lug groceries or heavy items through a condo building or long hallway. When you arrive, you’re home.
10) Experience Life Within Walking Distance
Modern townhome living can offer a low maintenance lifestyle in urban locations where you can enjoy the best of life within walking distance®. At EYA, this is more than just a mantra, it's a way of life that many seek and it defines how and where we build our communities.

Timing markets is notoriously difficult, and the real estate market is no different. There are always risks and opportunities to weigh, and waiting for the perfect time to buy or sell may not work out as planned. Just two years ago, for example, buyers in the Washington, DC area who had been waiting for the housing market to cool and thought the COVID-19 pandemic might slow things down, found themselves competing in the tightest bidding wars in decades as families sought more space for home schooling and remote work.

The ribbon cutting event not only celebrated our first homeowner move-ins, but also the successful transformation of an underutilized piece of land into a vibrant new residential neighborhood.
