If you are you in the process of buying a home you will want to make an informed decision and take into consideration your specific needs? Your needs may be different from another buyer depending on what type of home buyer you are. For example, if you looking at purchasing a second or vacation home, the amount of maintenance the home will require may be a big concern.

Here you can find buyer information specific to many different types of buying options or properties.

It may be a home without plans and needing an architect to design – or, they may already have plans that need to be adjusted to suit their needs.

Also, since these homes are usually occupied only part-time, owners need to be more vigilant about maintenance.
Multi-family homes are a great way to put a roof over your head while generating income at the same time. However, as an owner/landlord, you are responsible for maintaining your rental unit as well as your residence – and any of the common elements and systems.
