What Type of Home is Right for You and Your Family?

30 May 2022

Have you been stressing about your ongoing house hunting? Choosing and purchasing a home is one of the most important investments you will ever make in your lifetime. For this reason, you need to make sure that you choose a living space that matches your family’s needs as well as the other important factors. In selecting a particularhome option, you need to assess all the surrounding factors for you to find an ideal home for your family. So, what is the type of home that is right for you and your family? Read on to help you find the right fit for you and your family by knowing these most common house types.

Single-Family Home

Single-family home building is the most common type of living space. They are usually detached and solely built on a lot without sharing a wall with another house. The advantage of choosing a single-family home is it provides you and your family the privacy that you need because you don’t share walls with the other houses. Also, one of the benefits of owning a single-family home is they usually have enough space for the back and front yard to give you sufficient recreational space for your family.


Condos are built in a large building and often share a wall with other condo units which sometimes tends to be noisy. So, if your family prefers a quiet living space, then condominiums could not be the best choice for you and your family.


In contrast to a single-family home, townhouses share a wall with other neighbouring townhouses. Compared to condominiums, townhouses provide more space. As for single-family homes, townhouses cost less, and maintenance is already covered by the homeowners’ association. Unlike in single-family homes where you will be responsible for the maintenance and landscaping.

Multi-Family Home

Multi-family home, on the other hand, is a detached building with four units. Same with condominiums, noise could also be a potential issue since choosing a multi-family home means sharing a wall with other units.
