Multi-family homes are the least common type of residential building. They are essentially a home that has been turned into two or more units. They can be rowhouse-style or have multiple floors, and range in size from a duplex to a four-plex; anything more than four units is considered commercial. Some multi-family homes have a separate entrance for each unit, while some share a main entrance. The distinction between multi-family units and condos is that the units can’t be purchased individually; there’s one owner for the whole building.
Multi-family homes are ideal for those looking for an investment property: many decide to live in one unit, and rent out the others for income, or simply rent out all units. They are also a great option for multi-generational households; they allow family members to live in the same building but have their own unit.
