We found a new construction townhome and townhome community we LOVE. Absolutely head over heels for the area, the style, the size, the fixtures, everything. The only thing originally was that it was definitely on the higher end of our budget, as in we’d be taking a leap into higher level than we originally planned.
Then, once we started to pick out actual lots, we realized the only one that was really set up for our budget faces the back of a Costco. Now, there’s no loading truck or anything but the front of the townhome faces it. The backside, where you enter the driveway, faces inside the row of townhomes as does the master.
The plus side to this community is that it’s very close to the popular downtown area, has several awesome amenities, and really nice features inside the home itself like spray foam, tankless water heater etc…
The other two lots are more interior but it’s a $10k difference. It’s probably going to raise our payment $100-200 per month and with us already taking the step up this feels a bit more intense. I don’t care about the Costco but I’m worried a future renter or worse when we sell one day it will hurt us.
Is this a huge breaker for a townhome? Should we pass? What would you do?
