Search Here for Minnesota Townhomes and Townhouses ยป

MN Townhomes are as varied as they are popular. Ranging in age from well over 100 years to ones built this year, these homes also span the range of sizes and needs. Would you like on that is bigger than 5000 square feet? We’ve got ‘em!

By definition, these types of property share certain common amenities, usually at least outside maintenance (lawn care and snow removal), trash and recycling. Because of this classification, it is also a great category to explore to find cabins in Minnesota, since often cabin communities offer exterior maintenance whether you’re at the cabin or not. Often, these will be the listings outside the Twin Cities metro area and frequently ones with smaller square footage than the regular year-round Townhouse.

Once you know the general area and criteria for your new Town House, you are ready to search the MLS. Many sites offer free MLS searches, so once you log on, you need only specify the criteria you want in your new home. Consider minimum square footage, minimum number of bedrooms and baths, even how many cars you prefer to fit in the garage. If you have pets that will be living in the Townhouse with you, make sure the complex allows them. Every housing community has a different set of community by-laws with which you will want to be familiar before you finalize your purchase. Ask you Realtor for details, he or she will get you a copy of those after an offer has been accepted, but well before you close.

Once you have selected a property that you like and are getting ready to secure the financing for it, keep in mind that each community has it’s own association dues that go with it as well, depending on what it covers. If the association is only responsible for trash and recycling, for example, it may be only $20 to $30 a month. If it covers more, and perhaps even includes maintenance of the common areas with things like a pool, whirlpool, playgrounds and such, you can expect your association-dues to be much higher than that. But again, if this is a concern, let your Realtor know and he/she will narrow the search to only include the places that fit your budget.
