Townhome Construction | Lakewood Ranch Buyer's Agent Services | David Barr Realtor

You'll be hearing a lot about real estate buyer's agents in the near future. Here's just one example of how a buyer's agent works for you.


We are seeing a lot of new construction communities with townhomes in Lakewood Ranch, as builders are offering less expensive options to single family homes. There are differences when it comes to good/better/best construction.

This townhome in Aurora, by the same builder as Avanti, has partial wood framing around the 2nd story windows, which must be wrapped with a moisture barrier. Notice the exterior straps.

Townhomes in Avalon Woods in Lakewood Ranch are all wood frame construction on the 2nd floor. These could have fewer fire protection properties, sound deadening, and pest control benefits, than all concrete block construction.


Differences in the ways townhomes are constructed could have an impact on price and expenses such as homeowners insurance, condo fees, and energy costs.
