Below is your very own "cheat sheet" that you can refer to whenever you need a little more clarification as the buzz words get tossed about.
Coach Home - Coach homes are 2 story walkup buildings with 4 to 12 units per building. The building design provides access to each home from the ground floor with a distinct entrance. Unlike a town home, these units are two-story but you live either upstairs or downstairs. They often range in living area size from 1,400 to 2,400 square feet. The upstairs units normally have more square feet of living area as they usually extend above most of the garage space. In addition, most upstairs units have cathedral or vaulted ceilings. Parking is a 1 or 2-car attached garage with access from the interior of the home or from a covered walkway, allowing easy access between the garage and the entrance of the home.
Single Family Home – Single family homes are stand-alone homes on their own lots, but within this category there is an extreme amount of variation. This home type can be single level or with multiple floors, can be modest to luxurious in size, and while they are often found in master planned communities, this is not at all always the case. This type of home is ideal for families who are looking for a little more privacy and included exterior spaces.
