When you are looking for a house in brand-new condition but your budget maxes out at $400,000, a townhouse can be your best option in suburban Washington, where single-family houses can easily top $500,000 or more. A townhouse, particularly an end unit with extra windows, often has as much space as a single-family home and can require less maintenance depending on how much the homeowner’s association handles.

For example, the end unit townhouse in the Goshen Village development at 19513 Taverney Dr. in Gaithersburg, priced at $327,500, has a monthly homeowner association fee of $96. Annual property taxes are $2,952.

The house comes with two assigned parking spaces.
