Go From Renting to Owning; Here’s Why Now is the Right Time to Buy a Townhome

In the famous words of Oprah Winfrey —

You get a townhome! You get a townhome! You get a townhome!
Everyone gets a townhome!!!

Okay, we admit Oprah didn’t say that exactly. But what we do know for sure is more people are moving into townhouse communities in 2024! With 5.9% of the US housing market consisting of townhomes, everyone from large families, new parents, single professionals, and empty-nesters are choosing this housing type in today’s unpredictable real estate market.

To combat this pressure, many people have decided to take the leap and purchase a townhome to start building equity, stabilize their monthly bills, and invest in a home they own. We think it’s time for you to do the same! Here are a few more reasons why buying a townhome from Kerley Family Homes is a smart choice!


Townhome Sizes Rival Single-Family Homes – Without the Price Tag!

The picture above showing a cascading grand staircase, granite-top kitchen island built for hosting, and 9-foot ceilings with gorgeous light fixtures isn’t a snapshot of a $500K home. We know it’s surprising, but this home is available at our new townhome community in Mableton, Park View Reserve. It looks like a single-family home, doesn’t it?

We built the homes in this neighborhood to rival single-family homes in the surrounding community without the hefty price tag.

Taking this approach allows more people to enjoy the perks of living in a suburban metro Atlanta community like Mableton, GA. Homeowners can send their kids to top-ranked schools, shop at gourmet grocery stores, support thriving local businesses, and live right by I-285 so their commute to work is quick and accessible.

If you could live in a brand new multi-story townhouse with a front porch and a lush backyard that’s $100,000+ less than the average single-family home of a similar size, would you? We’ve got the square footage; you can bring the moving boxes!

These townhouses bring charm and style with the added benefit of a low-maintenance lifestyle! Homebuyers love the open-concept floor plans with 3-4 bedrooms, 2-car garages, and optional covered patios, all for the starting price in the $400s.

This is a rare find! Not many townhome communities will offer you a brand-new 4-bedroom home at this price. Now, your growing kids can have separate bedrooms, guests won’t need to sleep on the couch or a blow-up mattress, and you can convert additional rooms into a home office, fitness area, wellness space, and more. The sky is the limit!


Enjoy Convenient Access to Great Community Features

The townhomes in Park View Reserve are in an accessible location within walking distance of a Kroger grocery store and gas station. Imagine coming home from work and picking up ingredients for dinner with no extra hassle! Or what about needing gas for your car and pulling up to a pump right outside your community? The convenient access can’t be beaten, especially when Atlanta traffic can double your commute time on any given day.

Whether you like jogging or biking on the Silver Comet Trail, listening to live music at the Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre, or watching the national champs play at Truist Park, Park View Reserve is near all the places you love to explore!

Our other new townhome community is just 11 minutes away in Austell. Park Center Pointe boasts similar features – 3 and 4-bedroom floor plans, backyards, and 2-car garages. You’ll live closer to Six Flags™ Over Georgia, South Cobb Aquatic Center, and Sweetwater Creek State Park, so fun times are just a short drive away!

We know you’ve heard this comment before from a well-meaning coworker or caring family member, “Buy a house so you can stop throwing money away on rent!

News flash: it doesn’t work like that for everyone, and WE GET IT.

However, the other benefits should weigh on your decision-making to buy a house. While your rental lease draws to a close in the next few weeks or months, it’s time to finally say goodbye to:

  • Rent increases with no new amenities or home features.
  • A leasing office that struggles to fix basic issues around the community (why are half the machines in the gym broken?) 
  • A lackluster maintenance team that patches everything rather than fixes the problem.
  • Small bedrooms and cramped bathrooms with limited storage space. 
  • Tiny living areas that make it difficult to host parties and guests.

If this sounds like your living situation right now, then it’s been time to move on for a while.

In today’s real estate market, you don’t need a robust down payment to purchase a home.
