This type of property can be two (duplexes) or more units sharing common walls with separate one or two car garages. The advantage is that it has the feel of a home and is one level. Some units can range up to 1800 square feet.

Note: common walls in Florida are normally made of concrete block and are often more sound proof than standard framed walls.
This is a stand-alone single-family home that normally has smaller yards and has size limits normally around 2000 square feet because of the lot. Many developments that offer these homes provide standard floor plans from which to choose. Normally the lot is included in the base price of the home, however there are often lot premiums based on location. Unlike a town home these units are two-story but you live either upstairs or downstairs. Each has their own garage, which could be single or two cars. The upstairs units normally have more square feet as they can extend above the garage and most upstairs have vaulted ceilings. 


Carriage homes are the same as Coach Homes but normally larger units. The name coach and carriage are used interchangeably in many developments.

High-Rises are 10 stories
or more.

Mid-Rises are from 3-10 stories.

Low-Rises are normally 2 stories.

This is the traditional home as most know it. If the home is built in a development then they traditionally have standard floor plans or preferred builders. If the home is built on your lot outside a development you are open to select a builder. You select the lot and contractor and the home is designed to your specifications. Single-family homes can also be custom built but the term custom is traditionally for higher end homes and features.
