The Benefits of Renting an Ottawa Townhouse
Whether you’re thinking about raising a family, want a bit more room for an office, or are looking to share the rent with two of your friends, you should seriously consider renting an Ottawa townhouse.
There are a considerable number of advantages to renting a townhouse over a two or three-bedroom apartment. The most obvious benefit is price. Essentially, in renting a townhouse you will get “more bang for your buck”.
In other words, townhouses usually provide far more square-footage for your money. Often, you can rent a whole house with a furnished basement, main level (with kitchen, dining room, and living room), and two or three upstairs bedrooms, for the same price as a two or three-bedroom apartment. This allows plenty of space for young families to expand, university students looking for room to relax and study, and professionals who need that extra storage area.
Your money truly goes further with a townhouse – inside and out. Often, townhouses come with parking right outside your front door. This makes it much easier for daily tasks such as bringing home your groceries and also provides greater security when you can see your car outside.
Furthermore, most apartments either have a small balcony or no outside access at all. Even if a building does have a small outdoor space, most building regulations do not allow you to have a propane barbeque. Townhouses, meanwhile, not only allow to you to own a propane barbeques, they often have ample outdoor space for you to sit outside with your friends or family in the summertime.
If you’re at that point in your life that you need more space than a two-bedroom apartment, don’t break your budget. Rent an Ottawa townhouse.
