Condo or a Condominium

A condo is a housing unit that is part of a structure or a building jointly owned with other memebers of the Association, along with the amenities such as pool, tennis courts, gym and others. As a condo owner you own the interior space but not the building itself. Condos can be located in 2 or 3 story untis or even high rise buildings. You will most often have neighbors on each side and up above or below.

Townhouse or a Townhome

Townhome is a specific type of construction, where you own the building and the land it sits on.  However, it is not a free standing building. Usually it is attached to other units and shares a wall with it. Townhomes usually have neighbors on the side but not above or below.
