Real Estate Term of the Day: Detached Housing

Real Estate Term of the Day: Detached Housing

DETACHED HOUSING (aka: Detached Single Family) – residential buildings in which each dwelling unit is surrounded by freestanding walls and is generally sited on a separate lot.  Contrast with attached housing (Barron’s Dictionary of Real Estate Terms)

Benefits of detached housing vs attached housing:

  • Typically offers a yard & more land
  • Less noise from neighbors
  • More privacy from neighbors
  • Potential resale value might be higher because detached housing can be more desirable
