  1. I do not have time OR I do not want to mow the lawn, rake leaves, weed the garden, etc. In short, I don't have a green thumb and have no interest in acquiring one! NOTE: MOST Townhouses do not have yards, however there are a few that do have smaller yards if you enjoy gardening / yard work.

    (Answer: YES or NO )

Rating your score

Those are the “big questions”. If you have answered “YES” to all of the questions above then your lifestyle is well suited for multi-unit Condominium / Townhouse living. If you answered “NO” to any of the answers, carefully re-consider if that issue is critical for you and a “showstopper”. If it is showstopper, a single family home would be much better suited for your lifestyle needs. Click below to search for Condo/Townhome communities in North Atlanta.
