Manhattan Beach Condos and Townhomes for Sale

What's the Difference Between a Condominium and Townhome?

This is a very common question that buyers often have. It often comes up during the loan process when the lender informs the buyer that the rate for a condo is higher than for a Single Family House (SFR) and the buyer is utterly confused because they are buying a Townhome and don't know why the lender is referencing anything to do with condominiums. Confusing, right?

In CA a residential property can be either a SFR (think a house sitting on its own lot), a condominium, or part of a planned unit development (PUD). An example of the latter would be Manhattan Village.

From a lender perspective, PUDs are more likely to get the same interest rate as SFRs.

From a stylistic perspective, when most people think of condos what comes to mind are flat, apartment like dwellings in a larger multi story building. Townhomes are usually understood to be mutli-level dwellings most often with their own direct entry from the street and often with attached garages.
