When I first ventured into real estate blogging, I didn't have any idea about these House Hunting Terms so I ended up confused during my first site trip. With my regular site visits and interaction with helpful real estate agents from Driven Marketing Group, I got to know more about the jargons used in this industry. I think this will be useful for you too.
Single Attached VS Single Detached
Have you ever wondered about the difference between the houses that are attached and detached? As you might have been house hunting for several weeks now, you may stumble upon the options of several subdivisions offering these types of houses. How would you know the difference?
Single Attached means that a house shares a common wall typically on both sides of the property. A duplex can be considered as an attached one. It is composed of two dwellings in generally one structure. While on the other hand a Single Detached property stands alone and with extra spaces of lot around it.
Row House VS Town House
The idea of these two types is the same and that is wall sharing. Row Houses are single storey units while town houses are two-stories. Some developers would initially offer row houses because they cost lower and is preferred by young starters. Later once you have acquired the property already, you will be given the chance to construct second level if you desire more rooms. When it comes to the lot, the individual unit owners are responsible for their front and back lot areas.
Did you know that MyCitiHomes is known for their several townhouse projects in Cavite?!

Multi-Pod, Inner Unit and End Unit
You probably have thought about getting Multipod units in some developers of your choice but you are confused which unit will you choose. Generally speaking, multipods are 3 – 4 units of houses attached / in a row. The two inner units will only have access to their front and back side of the lots but they are cheaper than end units as well. So for budget conscious buyer, inner units are advisable. End units are more expensive because the price includes the side lot usually provisioned for carports and small gardens.
I've noticed that End Units are usually the preferred by house buyers and most of the time they reserve it in advance. Chances are, you'll have more options when you invest on pre-selling properties like Bali Hai Residences in Imus, Cavite which offers END Unit with lot area of 91 sqm for a total contract price of about 2,051,888.
