New York City buyers that might have been interested in a three-bedroom co-op or condo are leaning toward townhouses these days because of the space and privacy they provide, brokers tell Brick.

Townhouses are more in demand in the Covid era thanks to those amenities, plus their private outdoor space and room for home offices, ideal for when the whole family is working and learning from home. Another perk: You won’t have to share an elevator or common areas with neighbors (or strangers), and risk catching the virus.

Right now, thanks to price cuts on luxury properties and historically low mortgage rates, a townhouse might be within reach. Although a renovated townhouse is typically pricier than a three-bedroom co-op or condo, you get more square footage, no monthly charges, and lower taxes.

So, if you’re looking to buy a townhouse, here are five on the market including a Park Slope four bedroom and a Manhattan Valley five bedroom.
