MN Townhomes for Sale

Townhomes in Minnesota come in an assortment of styles, prices and locations. If you are someone searching townhomes for sale, you will be choosing either a side by side townhome, detached townhome or quad (4 corners). On rare occasions, the side by side will actually be and up/down townhome, but Minneapolis townhomes tend to stay within the first 3 categories.

Now let’s clarify what that actually means. MN townhomes all have an association, which means unlike most single family homes they share some common facilities and/or amenities. That could mean a parking lot, pool, playground, basketball or tennis courts: whatever the specific facilities for that community are. As such, they will have an association fee, sometimes called HOA, or Home Owners Association. That fee covers the maintenance and upkeep of the common areas as well as any community provided services or utilities such as sewer, water, trash and recycling.

To more clearly define the styles of townhomes in Minnesota, let’s take a look at the most common style, the side x side. This can be as many or as few in a row as the developer determines, but unless you’re in an end unit, you’ll have a neighbor on each side of you. This is why they are frequently referred to as row homes. These buildings can have both front and rear entrances usually with a tuck-under garage.

Or you could have neighbors on both sides and behind you if the only entrance for this unit is through the front only. Quads have neighbors on 2 adjoining walls and 2 open walls. It is common to see this style of townhomes for sale with a patio or other private garden area.
Lastly there are the detached MN townhomes. They are most like a single family home that share the local facilities. They share no wall with other townhomes and can have attached or detached garages.

If you are just beginning your search for townhomes in Minnesota, look around the Minnesota MLS. Type in your Minneapolis townhomes criteria and request showings of your favorite ones. It may be challenging to know everything about townhomes for sale unless you can see them in person. The photos only tell you a small piece of the story.
