looking to move to a new place and i'm not sure which route to go. looked at a gorgeous 3200 square foot single family home, four levels, 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, nice part of town with a bike trail literally just off the back yard. also considering a 2000 square foot two level townhouse, two units (side by side) per building, new and nice neighborhood with same bike trail just behind it. 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, master suite. $110,000 cheaper than the single family house. not sure i want to tend to all the lawn care, snow removal, and maintenance of a single family home. not sure if i want to risk getting a loud neighbor in the townhouse. it's a high end townhouse so presumably that would sort out the riff raff, but still. what would you do and why? any of you hate owning a single family home? i asked my siblings and they were all in the "go with the townhouse" route. said houses are money pits that suck up all your free time and money, even though they love their homes.
