Townhomes are a popular choice in Madison, especially once you leave the city center. The advantages are plenty: more space and privacy than an apartment, lower HOA fees than a condo, and… backyards. Imagine the barbecue potential! With your own yard, front door, porch, and deck, townhome properties provide many of the advantages of home-ownership… except for, you know, the mortgage payments. They’re perfect for young families and couples, and their rents can be quite reasonable, especially in Madison.
