Now, you may wonder why it is better idea to invest in single family building than investing in multifamily apartment building.

The detailed reasons for investing in single family apartment are as under.
Higher rent payment
As discussed above, you may be able to receive multiple checks from your apartment building but those checks come with many taxes which you would need to pay. On the other hand, rent from single family building doesn’t go through bigger deductions.
The major benefit of a single family home is that the home appreciates pretty quickly as compared to the apartment building. And another major benefit is that a single family building doesn’t cost much. Hence, the investment in single family building is not the risky one.

With a single family building, you get reasonable amount of area which you can use as a yard. Hence, you can decorate the yard space in order to make the property an overall attraction for the prospective tenants.

This yard area is not just for kids but it can also help your tenants host the evening parties at home.
Since it is the smaller building for one family as compared to the apartment building which tends to give living space to several families, you can expect your single family home to demand less maintenance. Hence, the costs of maintenance would also be quite low.
