3 Bedroom Townhouse Style Condo in Germantown Under $340,000

When comparing townhouses and condos, it’s important to review the monthly association fee to see what matches your monthly housing payment. Depending on what the fees cover and the ownership structure, you could save money on property taxes, insurance, and discretionary spending on recreational amenities such as a pool and gym.

For example, the townhouse-style condo at 18368 Timko Lane Unit 54 in Germantown, Md., is priced at $338,999. That’s well below the median sale price for a home in Montgomery County, which was $620,000 in May, according to Bright MLS.

Annual property taxes for the townhouse are $2,834 and monthly condo fees are $218. The association is responsible for all exterior repairs and maintenance of the townhouse, including the roof and exterior siding. The townhouse comes with two assigned parking spaces. A new playground is located behind the house and the community has a swimming pool. Pets are allowed in the community.
