A Multi-Family Home: What Is It?

A Multi-family home is a single building with separate living accommodations for multiple families, unlike a single family home, containing only one private living quarters for one family in a single dwelling.

Some common types of multi-family housing include duplexes that have two separate dwellings for families and apartment buildings with upto four separate units.  Any unit size over 4 separate dwellings are considered commercial property.  Multi-family homes have distinct characteristics from that of single-family homes, including a different mailing address, individual kitchens and bathrooms and typically separate entrances to each unit.

Long-Term Investment

Real estate remains Americans’ top choice for long-term investment. In most cases, a multi-family home serves as an investment property for the owner(s).   To maximize your investment, understanding the costs associated with the property, including not only your mortgage, property taxes and homeowners insurance, but also other expenses such as utilities, real estate agent fees, advertising (to attract tenants) and legal fees, are vitally important factors to consider in your buying process.

Who Should Purchase A Multi-Family Home?

Multi-family homes are best for those who are interested in getting into real estate investing and are comfortable with the added responsibility and time commitment that comes with being a landlord. They can also be a smart choice for multi-generational families interested in buying a property together while having their own dedicated space.
