Just wondering why there seems to be so many 3-2-1 townhouses ie. one garage as opposed to 3-2-2. I realise the simple answer is because you can get more units on the land size that way but if that's the case, aren't we just building undesirable places that no one will want to live in long term ? I know the developers don't care (or maybe I'm assuming this) but wouldn't it (shouldn't it ?) make more sense to build something a bit more suitable, and set the sale price of each unit accordingly ? I've seen quite a few developments where there are 10+ 3-2-1 townhouses (sometimes dozens) and there are cars sprawled everywhere. I've also seen this issue of not enough car parking space in new estates but it seems to be worse in these townhouse developments. The couple that are renting a house next to my PPOR now, rented in such a development with around 10 townhouses for a year and they told me "never again". It was cramped and they didn't have enough storage. Their car has got hail damage and when I asked them about it, they said it was because they didn't park it inside the garage, as it was used for general storage. They said that most people living in the development did the same. So you'd think at the very least, a carport would be provided seeing as most people park their car in their driveway. As for storage in general, I asked them why they didn't just use the 3 bedrooms. One they said was used a study and the other was just a spare bedroom for visitors ... fair enough. I queried them further and said if it's a 3 bedroom townhouse, you'd think it'd be designed so that a family could live there. They just laughed. I'm not suggesting we should be building massive mansions for all, but you'd think some basic provision for 2 cars and adequate storage would be driven by ... wait for it ... the market. But apparently not.
