Single-Family Detached House
Provides more options for renovating or even rebuilding. They are often situated on larger lots, and may be farther away from the neighbours (depending on location), which may mean less noise.
Usually less expensive than a comparable fully detached home, because the two side-by-side units share an adjoining wall; however, there may be noise issues for the same reason.
While it looks like a detached house, the garage of a link house (also known as a carriage house) is attached to the neighbouring garage, with which it shares a wall. The basement walls of the home are often adjoined as well. Ownership and responsibilities are similar to a semi-detached, as are potential cost savings compared to a fully detached home.
Traditionally consists of three or more homes attached side-by-side. Townhouses can also be stacked, so that units are above and below as well as side-by-side. Depending on the type of building and where your unit is situated, you may have one, two, or even three adjoining neighbours. Townhouses can be either full ownership or condominium ownership.
This contains two units, situated either beside each other or one above the other. You own both units, which means you can generate rental income from the second unit.
