Louisville Patio Homes vs Louisville Condominiums
Understanding the difference between a patio home and a condominium. A patio home is similar to a single-family home or townhome where the developer has built a cluster of patio homes in most instances have shared walls. Sometimes a patio home or townhome may also be in the same category as a condo because they may offer the same features.
A condo in most instances is simply a type of ownership where you are expected to pay a monthly maintenance fee and abide by the condo bylaws that in place. Condos are similar to apartment buildings if you are looking for architectural style comparison. The difference is that you, as an owner, own the interior space of the condo and share ownership of the common areas. You do not, however, own the land that the condo building is situated on and the amenities.
