Duplexes are gaining popularity with homeowners and investors looking for premium homes suitable for families. Buyers can purchase a duplex, move into one side and make money by renting the other side. Unlike off-site landlords, a duplex owner can make repairs and maintain the property without excessive delays or travel time. Duplex builders have designed their units with families in mind, and you can examine some of the exceptional family-oriented designs in the following sections.
Available in Modern and Traditional exterior styling, the two-story Richmond 50 duplex features four bedrooms and three bathrooms in each unit ideal for a growing family.
