Benefits of low-maintenance townhome and condo living
Homeownership offers incredible benefits, but the reality is that it also comes with responsibilities. One of the most significant responsibilities is maintenance. At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters, and we know that your time is precious. That is why we offer a variety of low-maintenance townhome and condo plans so you can spend more time doing the things that matter most to you rather than worrying about home maintenance.
Here are just some of the benefits of low-maintenance townhome and condo living:
Lower Price Point Than Traditional Single-Family Homes
Land is one of the biggest factors when it comes to the price of a traditional single-family home. A front yard and backyard can add anywhere from $75,000 to $200,000 to the price of a home. That is why there is often a lower price point for a low-maintenance townhome or condo than for a single-family home.
A great example of this can be found at our condo community, The Pointe at Twin Hickory in Glen Allen, Virginia. Pricing for these one-to-three-bedroom condos starts from the low $300,000s while the median single-family home price in that area starts around $600,000. That lower price point means you can enjoy a brand-new home in some of Richmond, New Kent, Williamsburg, and Raleigh’s most sought-after neighborhoods for a fraction of the price.
Included Lawn Care for Beautiful Outdoor Spaces Year-Round
Maintaining a lawn costs the average homeowner around $100-$200 a month. That includes gas for a lawnmower, mulch for flower beds, purchasing shrubs/flowers and fertilizer, and irrigation and aeration treatments. Lawns are expensive, and that doesn’t factor in how much time it takes to maintain them. When you buy a low-maintenance townhome or condo with HHHunt, you can say “goodbye” to mowing the lawn, raking the leaves, and mulching the flower beds! Lawn care is included in your HOA fee. That means your outdoor spaces will look beautiful year-round without you ever having to lift a finger. For example, homeowners in our Quarterpath at Williamsburg Condos in Williamsburg, Virginia and our Wescott Condos and Wescott Townhomes community in Midlothian, Virginia receive lawn care services all year long, including weekly mowing during the growing season, weed eating, shrub and flower bed maintenance, and turf management.
Save Money on Your Home’s Exterior Maintenance
In a traditional single-family home, the homeowner is responsible for things like maintaining the roof, replacing siding, and repaving the driveway. These costs can add up quickly. The average homeowner spends between $5,000-$10,000 annually on maintenance repairs. For townhome and condo owners, this maintenance is provided by the homeowner’s association and covered by the HOA dues. Whether you are living at Wescott Townhomes in Midlothian, Virginia or our Carpenters Pointe townhome community in Cary, North Carolina, you will never have to worry about replacing your roof or updating your siding. The homeowner’s association takes care of all that and can do it at a competitive price because of volume discounts. This can save homeowners tens of thousands of dollars every year.
Lifestyle Events and On-Site Amenities
In addition to helping to maintain the low-maintenance townhome or condo community, homeowner’s associations often offer great social events to foster new friendships and connections. Lifestyle events and activities create a sense of community which often results in longer residency. Looking for a swimming pool or other fun amenities? Many of our communities, like River Mill Townhomes in Glen Allen, Virginia, and Magnolia Green Townhomes in Moseley, Virginia, provide a variety of amenities for homeowners, such as clubhouses, pools, community trails and more. This means homeowners can save on external memberships because they will have access right in their backyards.
Easy Access to Area Shopping, Dining, and Employers
One of the things that sets our low-maintenance townhome and condo communities apart is their location. We build in some of the best areas in Richmond, New Kent, Williamsburg, and Raleigh that are very convenient to shopping, dining and employers. Maidstone Village in New Kent County, Virginia, is one of our newest, low-maintenance townhome communities. Conveniently located within a short distance to the Heritage Public Library – New Kent Branch, New Kent County Elementary School, New Kent County Government Center, and great shopping and dining experiences, homeowners will have easy access to everything at their fingertips! The same is true for our Townes at Innsbrook Square community in Glen Allen, Virginia. Homeowners will be very convenient to the area’s largest employers and some of the best dining in the area.

HHHunt offers a variety of low-maintenance townhome and condo opportunities for homebuyers 55 and better. Mosaic at West Creek is our first community designed for 55+ homebuyers.
