What does townhome or patio home living look like in Tucson?
Patio homes and townhomes are often considered the same thing, although in strict real estate terms, a townhome is a denser property type, always attached to another home on one or both sides of the home. Townhomes share walls with the neighbors. Patio homes, by definition, are always separated and considered a type of single-family home. By design, both provide developers a way to increase home sales within large tracts of land with multiple price points. Both patio homes and townhomes can be one or two-story in height, with the majority in Tucson being of the one-story variety.
Living in a Tucson patio home community is different from living in a single-family home because the homes are so close together. The differences that are important to understand in order to see if this type of home ownership is for you.
Simply put, when your neighbors are closer together there is less privacy.
Many townhome and patio home communities are close-knit. Homeowners know each other, participate in neighborhood events, and share common interests. This is a natural result of the greater density of the neighborhood. Homeowners need to be able and willing to get along with each other. In our experience, we find many townhome and patio home owners discover they have many things in common and they thrive on the community that develops within these neighborhoods.
Patio homes and townhomes allow home owners to purchase property for 25% to 50% less than it would cost to buy a slightly larger single-family home in the same area. Since a developer can build more homes on a tract of land, they can offer lower prices.
Many townhome and patio home neighborhoods are gated, especially on the northwest side of Tucson and in the Catalina Foothills. If you are a winter resident, this offers added protection while away during the summers, and for all residents, a measure of security and privacy.
Patio homes and townhomes nearly always provide residents with a community pool and other community areas. If used, these are attractive perks, provided at a fraction of the cost otherwise associated with the amenity.
Most townhome and patio home neighborhoods have provisions that the HOA (Home Owner Association) is responsible for roofs, common areas, pools, and in some cases, trash service, and water. We have even seen cable TV included with HOA dues. This makes it great for those owners looking for a “lock and leave” type of ownership. Also, it keeps costs in line with expectations.

I would highly recommend Michael for any residential real estate need. I listed my home to test the market and received a contract on day 5 for just $2,400 less than my asking price. I was not prepared for such a quick sale! —Falena Reed
