When looking at listings, what is the easiest way to identify single free standing homes as opposed to twins?

Asked by Jeff, 19128 Fri Feb 26, 2010

I had a bad experience a twin . . . the owner of the other half of my Roxborough twin neglects the property.

Tell your agent to only send you single family homes.

HI Jeff.

If you are looking at an MLS sheet, it should say there. If you are looking at the structure itself, count the mailboxes.

When creating a search be sure that your agent limits the results to "single family detached" homes. If you are doing your own searchs on line find a web site that allows that type of limitation. Ours does but not everyone else has that feature. Keep in mind that single family is a type of use not structure. It is important to include "Detached" as a search parameter to get the results you want.
