What is a Single-Family Home?

Benefits of Owning a Single-Family Home

Starting your home search can be exciting. It can also seem a little overwhelming with so many different types of homes and real estate terms used when discussing home features. That’s why we wanted to share some insight into one term you will hear a lot. So, what is a single-family home? We’re glad you asked!

What is the definition of a single-family home?

A single-family home is a residential property or living space that is not attached to another residence and may be referred to as a detached dwelling. Unlike condominiums or townhomes, these properties for sale do not share any walls with another home. Are you interested in learning more about condos and townhomes?

What about the land the home is on?

When home buyers buy a single-family house, the purchase price includes the parcel of land the home sits on. Depending on lot size and neighborhood agreements, the home often comes with a backyard, front yard, and side yards. This means you can be creative and customize your yard through gardening or hardscaping. HHHunt Homes offers single-family homes for sale in Richmond, Hampton Roads and Raleigh that feature yards perfect for families or entertaining.

If you’re interested in a finding a new home but not the yard work, you may want to consider a low-maintenance community. HHHunt builds many types of houses including low-maintenance living homes in the Richmond, Raleigh and Hampton Roads areas. You can visit HHHuntHomes.com to see those communities.

How do you access a single-family home?

Owning this style of home allows you direct access to your property from a street. In some instances, it may be from a street in front of your home or an alley in the back. This makes coming and going a breeze. It also makes for easier moving.

What about privacy?

There is plenty of privacy because there is a separation between you and your neighbors. No need to worry about hearing people through the walls or doors. You are in your own home away from others with opportunities to use your space for how you see fit. See for yourself by scheduling an open house tour with HHHunt Homes in applicable models!
