It’s time to move. Whether your lease is up and you’re ready to buy your first home or the kids have moved out and you’re ready to downsize, you’re thinking seriously about buying a new townhouse. This seems like the perfect option for you, and we couldn’t agree more. That being said, the decision to buy a Debary townhouse isn’t without serious considerations. There are certainly pros and cons to each type of house, a townhouse included. If you’ve never lived in a townhouse before, your biggest concern may be “Is it noisy?” Let’s answer this question right now!
The short answer is “yes…” but the longer answer is “…but not nearly as noisy as you may fear.” Anytime you’re living in close proximity to other people, you’re going to hear them. In a townhouse, you’re sharing at least one wall with your neighbors and possibly two if your home is in the middle unit. As well, your specific experience will depend greatly on the nature of your neighbors. Some people are just louder than others!
Another, and possibly the biggest, factor of whether or not you hear your neighbors is the construction of the building itself. This is not something you’ll need to worry about if you choose to live in Rivington! Our homes, both the townhouses and the single family homes, are constructed by the area’s top builders. This includes Dream Finders Homes, K. Hovnanian® Homes, and M/I Homes. These builders have been around for decades and have a reputation of excellence, so you never have to worry about your home being made with shoddy materials that allow excess noise to come in.
The last factor to consider is the location of the townhouse itself. Your neighbors won’t be the only thing you hear if you live near the Orlando airport or a train track! Thankfully, you won’t have to worry about this in Rivington. These townhouses are nestled in one of the top neighborhoods in the area. You’ll be near our lake and community pool, not a major highway! We encourage you to look at our community map to see exactly where the townhouses are located.
It’s normal to hear some sound through any wall, especially shared walls. The Debary townhouses in Rivington are made with high-quality construction materials and built to keep your family safe, your home quiet, and your life private. Despite the soundproofing materials used during construction, a bit of noise can leak from your neighbor’s home into yours. Fortunately, you don’t have to settle for living with the noise of neighbors. There are a few simple things you can do to make your home quieter. You could hang blackout curtains, put down area rugs, and seal the leaks around your doors and windows. These easy tasks will make a big difference if you’re bothered by any subtle noise.
So back to the original question, are townhouses noisy? The final answer is that there are many variables to consider. The main factors that will affect your home are:
#1 How noisy the neighbors are
#2 The construction of the building
#3 The location of the townhouse
At the end of the day, these are the same issues that you would have whether you were living in a townhouse, single-family house, condo, or an apartment. When you think of it this way, a townhouse is no different!
You want to find a well-built home that you love, in a peaceful and high-quality neighborhood, no matter which type of home you decide on. As you weigh out your options, we’re confident that you’ll decide Rivington offers you everything you’re looking for!
