Real estate is full of houses depending on your requirements. When it comes to choosing the right house, there may be different options to choose from. And it can get a little confusing, for sure! After you are done reading this article, you will know the difference in detached and attached homes. You will also understand which one is practical and the best choice for you.

Attached Homes

Attached homes are those that share property or wall with one another. Many people perceive that because you share a property, it does not afford you privacy, but this is not the case.

Here are the pros and cons of an attached home:

Pros

  • The community is responsible for providing you with facilities such as swimming pools, gym, clubhouse etc.
  • The community provides homeowners with basic maintenance such as repairs and property taxes.
  • Attached homes are affordable than detached homes which makes them the preferred choice of so many families.
  • When you are away, there is no need to worry about the security of your home. Because the community is responsible for it.
  • Attached homes are normally closer to town which makes the commutes shorter and saves you time.

Cons

  • There is definitely a lack of privacy. Moreover, a loud neighbor can make your living difficult.
  • The fees that you pay to the homeowner association are high for homeowners.
  • Each individual house looks the same which may not suit everyone’s requirements.

Detached Homes

Detached homes are those such as single-family houses. These sit on a property and do not share a wall with the property next to it. It stands alone. This does have several advantages for homeowners.

Following are pros and cons of a detached home:

Pros

  • A nice front yard where you can enjoy, tend to your garden or have your children play around.
  • You can renovate or extend your property to your liking without facing restrictions from the community.
  • Since you don’t share a wall with another house, detached homes provide privacy. This means that you will not face any disturbances from your neighbor and would not have to worry about your privacy as well.
  • Detached houses are generally larger than attached homes. This means that there is more space for your family.

Cons

  • You don’t have access to facilities such as swimming pools, gym etc. These are available for houses such as condominiums and townhouses.
  • You will have to maintain the property on your own since the community does not provide you with facilities.
  • Detached homes are mostly in suburban areas. You will have a longer and time-consuming commute to work.

There are also semi-attached and semi-detached houses such as duplexes. These can give you an in-between choice.
