- Single family homes (“detached” homes in the UK): these offer the most privacy but they do demand the most maintenance time and effort from the owner. If you’re buying for the purpose of short term renting, read our Buying to Let page here.
- Condos (“apartments” in the UK) generally have lower running costs than single family homes, with a lot of maintenance issues handled by the estate managers. Buyers are attracted by the lower purchase prices, even if this is means a shared pool instead of a private one and extra noise from communal walls and/or ceilings.
- Townhomes (“terraced” houses) represent a compromise between single family homes and condos. Usually comprising two or three floors, there is no “upstairs” neighbour to cause disturbance, and this type of property can offer excellent value for money.
Orlando also has different types of estate that a newcomer needs to understand. Click here: Types of estate for some basic information.
