Townhouse rentals have always been popular housing options in large cities and Phoenix is no exception. Since townhouses have small footprints, they allow a large number of people to live comfortably in a small area. In recent decades, townhouse rentals have become popular with renters who want more space than an apartment but without the cost of renting a stand-alone house. Often designed with more than one or two bedrooms and featuring the latest appliances, a townhouse can be a great transition property for a young working professional.
Townhouse rentals can vary significantly from one property to another and also by neighborhoods. Some townhomes for rent can be quite small. They offer just enough space for a single person or couple to live. Other rental properties, however, have multiple bedrooms, large dining rooms, and even garages that offer plenty of storage space.
Since these attributes can vary, rental prices also vary. That's why it is important for you to consider which features you need most when choosing a townhouse rental. Typically, townhomes in densely populated urban centers tend to be smaller in size than in larger developments in suburban neighborhoods.
