When buyers first start working with us, some already have a mental picture of what they want in new homes in Laredo they’re considering. Others are still weighing pros and cons of different new construction types. Let’s compare Single-family homes and townhomes.
When most people picture their dream home, this is what they’re thinking of. It’s a standalone structure for one family to live in, typically with a yard around it. It can be anything from a tiny home to a mansion. Everything about the property is yours to do with as you please.
Usually, they have a larger plot and more square footage than other types of housing. You have the ability to modify your home and lot any way you choose, as long as you stay within local regulations and any applicable HOA guidelines. All that is usually a plus, except for people who don’t want to deal with yard work or exterior maintenance issues. Those people may be more interested in other types of new homes in Laredo.
WestWind Homes has new homes in Laredo communities like Green Ranch, Lagos Del Valle and San Isidrio Puerta del Sol.
A townhome offers many of the benefits of homeownership without as many maintenance requirements. Most of the time they’re two stories high and they share at least one wall with a second townhouse. Often owners still have some front and back yard, so there’s a safe and enjoyable place for kids to play and adults to entertain.
You get more space and privacy than you would in multi-unit housing, and you own it just like you would a single-family home. You have free reign when it comes to interior customization. Like single-family homes, townhomes appreciate as time goes by, so you build long-term wealth.
Pricing for new homes in Laredo varies widely by location. One great thing about townhomes is because of their smaller lots and vertical configuration, they are more affordable to build where land is at a premium.

Hilltop Townhomes are within walking distance of North Laredo’s most popular shopping and dining.
