5 Major Benefits of Paired Homes!

5 Major Benefits of Paired Homes!

When you’re thinking about your next home, there’s more to consider than square feet, the number of bedrooms, and the style of the kitchen cabinets. You need a home that supports your lifestyle—that has what you want, where you want it, and without the things you don’t want. Consider the choice of paired or twin homes. What are paired homes? Simply put, paired or twin homes feature two individual properties thoughtfully nestled on separate homesites boasting private yards.   

What Are The Benefits of Our Paired Homes (Twin Homes)?

Choosing a paired home doesn’t mean you have to go small. Our paired homes offer very generous floor plan designs. Dream Finders Homes has homes for sale in Colorado with open living spaces, plenty of bedrooms, ample square footage, and more! Here are some of the benefits of paired homes: 
  1. Low maintenance, “lock and leave” lifestyle. Lock and leave means that you can lock up and live life without worrying about your home if you’re away. The lock-and-leave lifestyle provides more freedom and a sense of security; it's a good choice for young professionals, retirees, or busy families. Paired homes have a low-maintenance design that lets you do what you want when you want, and not worry about security or chores.
  2. The building shares only one wall. The property line runs down the center of the home so you are responsible for the care, maintenance, and insurance of everything on your side of the lot, just like a single family home. You can do what you want with your side of the house, including different roofs, different paint colors, etc.
  3. The yard and the maintenance are taken care of! Dream Finders’ paired homes have smaller yards… a private corner of paradise that’s all yours! Whether you want a place for the kids to romp or a quiet spot to read, you’ve got it. But the maintenance and landscaping are taken care of, so that’s one less thing you have to be responsible for. The best of both worlds!
  4. Potential cost savings. Because the homes are attached (with common walls, roofs, and other infrastructure), they are usually more affordable than single family homes. From the lower cost of maintenance and repairs to increased energy efficiency, paired homes are a great option for those on a tight budget.
  5. Good choice for first-time homeowners or recent retirees. A paired home is ideal if you’re a first-time buyer who wants some extra space but doesn't want to deal with the upkeep of a larger home. If you’re a retiree, living in a paired home allows you to get to know your neighbors better than you would in an apartment building, leading to new friendships and a sense of community.
