It’s time to stop California dreamin’ and make it a reality. With its great weather year-round, breathtaking coastlines, diverse culture, and proximity to both the beach and the mountains, Southern California is one of the top places people want to live. Homeownership here has long had a reputation of being unattainable, but with a variety of affordable townhome options and plenty of reasons to love townhome living, it’s time to make your move.
Buying a townhome is a great, more affordable option not only because of the lower purchase price, but the overall lower cost of living. Your monthly mortgage payment will typically be lower as will your property taxes and homeowner’s insurance. Compared to a larger, single-family home, a thoughtful townhome floor plan is more environmentally efficient (resulting in a lower cost to heat and cool your home) and requires less décor and furnishings upon move in (so you’re spending less to style and design your home). The prospect of allocating less of your budget to your home and having more to devote towards things you love makes townhome living appealing to first-time homebuyers and retired empty-nesters alike.
2. Low-maintenance living
Where’s the benefit of living so close to the beach and mountains if you’re spending your weekends mowing the lawn and weeding the flower beds? With a Brookfield Residential townhome, all of the community landscaping is included – giving you more time to do the things you love. Another beautiful, sunny SoCal day? Dive in and enjoy the community resort-style pool without having to worry about checking chlorine levels or scooping out leaves. Your time is better spent enjoying the perks of living in such a great location instead of household chores.
3. Wide variety of flexible floor plans
Gone are the days of only having one- and two-bedroom options for townhomes. Don’t worry, they’re still there, but townhomes have evolved to include options with 3 bedrooms (and occasionally up to 4!) and square footages comparable to what you’d find in a single-family home (without the added maintenance). You’re no longer confined to small floor plans with compartmentalized rooms. In a Brookfield Residential townhome, you’ll find smart, open-concept designs with spaces that seamlessly flow together for a connected, airy feel. You can choose from layout options that fit your lifestyle – need room for a home office and distance learning? We’ve got floor plans with a tech space or a den. Need some fresh air and a change of scenery? Step outside and enjoy your coffee break on your covered deck or private patio.
4. Smart home technology
Our lifestyles have become increasingly busy and we believe every day life should be more efficient and convenient. That’s why we infuse easy-to-use technology in our townhomes to help make your life easier. Best of all, it’s included. With Empower by Brookfield Residential, you have a suite of technology driven tools designed to give you complete control of every possibility for your home.
We build our homes with sustainable materials and they’re designed for the highest levels of performance, so with myEnergy, your home will constantly be conserving energy and water (hello lower bills!). myCommand gives you the ability to control your home using only your voice – choose your preferred device (Amazon, Apple®, or Google) and you can have access to your home anytime and anywhere so you can control your locks, lights, and thermostat from your phone. Keep an eye on packages on your porch with the Ring video doorbell option. Lock and unlock your front door with a smart deadbolt, which means no carrying your key when you head out to enjoy one of those great neighborhood parks. We tie it all together with powerful, full-coverage internet, no-drop WiFi and Ethernet throughout your new townhome.
5. Great amenities
We don’t just build great townhomes – we build great communities and that includes great amenities. There’s truly something for everyone to enjoy in each of our neighborhoods. Refreshing resort-style swimming pool? Check. A cool place for friends and family to gather? Try the firepit or shaded picnic area while you’re barbecuing for everyone. Need the kids to run out some energy? Head out to the tot lot where they can play as much as their hearts desire. Need a quiet moment to yourself? Go for a walk on one of the scenic walking trails or enjoy the outdoor fitness equipment. We’ve thought of it all and it’s all yours to enjoy.
