Townhouses in Vancouver

As a highly desirable type of residence, Vancouver townhouses for sale do not tend to stick around on the market for very long. The term townhouse is derived from the British tradition of town houses, which, historically, were the city dwellings of very wealthy families or those of nobility. From the 1700s and onwards, families would use them as a place of residence in which they would stay during their visits to the city for the social season, when major balls would take place. They would take their servants along with them, making themselves comfortable for the duration of their visit. Theyd then spend the rest of the year in one or more of the country houses they owned. The use of the term in real estate these days is indicative of the prestige of these modern residences. Those searching for townhouses for sale in Vancouver or surrounding areas of British Columbia will find that properties of this kind can be few and far between, and competition to buy a property of this type can be extremely tough because of their popularity.

Vancouver townhouses for sale these days are characterized by their multi-level structure, with rooms split over a number of floors. They tend to differ from apartments in this sense in that they have their own outside door that leads straight onto the street rather than being on one level with access through an interior hallway. Townhouses often consist of a number of units typically two which are stacked.
