Find Single-Family Real Estate For Sale or Lease

Single-family is a type of residential real estate property. It is one residential unit on a lot. Additionally, the owner can either live in the property or rent it out. So, you can purchase a home to be a landlord and lease it out, or you can be the primary resident.

Single-family homes can be one, two or three-story buildings. They generally have spacious features like closets, garages, driveways, attics, back yards, front yards and side yards. Some single-family homes also have special features like pools, spas, tennis courts and so on.

Single-family homes are often located further away from busy, urban areas. Some of the benefits of living in a single-family property are the space and privacy. Because there is only one unit on one lot, residents do not have to worry about dealing with anyone else. Unlike other types of residential properties, single-family homes do not share walls with other homes.

Single-family homes have private entrances and exits, as well as direct access to the street. Single-family dwellers can enjoy peace and quiet within the solitude of their property. This is very valuable to tenants. Many people would prefer to have a place to call their own, rather than have neighbors on the other side of a wall.

Another benefit of single-family homes is the control of development. Single-family owners enjoy more freedom when it comes to maintaining their property. A single-family homeowner has complete ownership of the property. So, they can freely design, renovate, develop, and personalize the property and land they own. If a homeowner wants to renovate their entire exterior to make it look like a Victorian home, they have all the power to do so. However, there may be limitations if the home is in an HOA.

Single-family homes are considered safe long-term investments. This is because, they are expected to greatly increase in value over time. A single-family property owner can choose to rent out their property, formally or informally, and make a steady cash flow.

Single-family homes are also easy and straightforward to finance. There are many affordable options available for finance the purchase of a single-family home. Whether investing in the home as a landlord, or to live in the home yourself, you can likely acquire a home loan. Getting a loan will depend upon on your credit score, but there are options for those with lower scores as well.

There are some considerations you should make before buying a single-family property for sale. As the owner, you have sole responsibility for its maintenance and upkeep. If you want to retain the value of your property, you will need to ensure property maintenance and repairs. You can do this yourself or by hiring external services to help you.

Most single-family homes do not have the alluring amenities featured in multi-family complexes, like gyms, pools and outdoor firepits. If you want these features on your property, you will likely have to pay to install and maintain them. Or you can be strategic and find an HOA (homeowner’s association) that offers these amenities. Single-family homes also tend to have higher purchase prices than other types of residential investments. This means larger down payments and closing costs.
