In most cases the answer is yes. However in some cities the government has allowed a duplex to be split and sold as "Half-Duplex". A great example of that is my neighbor to the north of Sarasota, Bradenton, FL. Also, we have "Attached Villas" that are basically a "duplex" called by a different name, they share a common wall.

It depends. When you are looking at property for investment or income a duplex refers to the building which brings two units. If you are looking at buying a single unit to live in is usually described as a 1/2 duplex or a condo.

The link provided here is to a villa in Pinebrook Preserve. This villa sold on 3/2/12. A duplex usually means that there are two units. It most commonly refers to units which are side by side with a common wall and roof. If you are looking for a duplex in the MLS you can search for income property. Most duplexes are listed under that heading. Villas or condos are sold as seperate units even though they share a common wall and roof as well.

I would be happy to send you some listings or answer any questions you may have.

No, only one unit is for sale. It is like a condo or a villa. If you are interested to set up a showing appointment, please give me a call.
