Single Family Homes

The phrase "single-family home" is something you'll often see when browsing through real estate listings. A single-family home might seem easy to define: It's a home for a single family, right? Eh, not exactly. To be classified as a single-family home, there are requirements the property must meet.  

What are those requirements? Let's take a look.  

What is a single-family home?  

The legal description for a single-family home is “a structure maintained and used as a single dwelling unit." So what does that mean exactly? A single dwelling unit will have these characteristics:

No common walls: A single-family home is a stand-alone, detached property, this means the home doesn't share common walls or a roof with any other dwelling.  

Land: A single-family home has no shared property but is built on its own parcel of land. 

Entrance and exit: A single-family home has its own private and direct access to a street or thoroughfare. This is as opposed to an apartment, which has hallways and a lobby that lead to street access.  

Utilities: Only one set of utilities can service a single-family home—and may not be shared in any way with another residence. This applies to heating, electricity, water, or any other essential service.  

One Household: A single-family home is built as the residence for one family, person, or one household.

Single kitchen: A single-family home has one kitchen. Adding a second kitchen will alter a home's zoning classification.
