There are a number of options when it comes to renting a place, ranging from single bedroom apartments, to duplex, to condos, to townhouses and more. but with so many options available at attractive prices, it just might become a bit difficult to choose from.
Here are a few reasons why a duplex should be preferred over renting other residential properties.
Work from home: Duplex homes are designed in such a way that you can easily create a separate office space for yourself. Apart from spacious living spaces and communal spaces, duplex offer the flexible option to people who work from their homes or have a job that requires them to commute only a couple of times to office in any given week. The layout of a duplex helps balance both your work life and home life, keeping them separate at all times.
Rent out the extra space: If you just happen to own a duplex, you can let out he additional portion of the house for travelers and tourists searching for vacation homes. Vacation rentals are generally for a shorter duration and the occupants keep on changing, but you are free to charge good rates and people will generally prefer a full apartment to rent instead of jus renting out a single room.
Shared backyard or garden: Nowadays it is impossible to find a decent space in the city which also happens to have a decent backyard or small garden. But duplex are designed by default to have a garden space which is of course shared with your neighbor next door. This is any day better than having no garden at all, for a number of reasons.
The occasional breath of fresh air, and a nice little garden for you kids to play will be a good change form the over polluted and crowded parks and so called recreation facilities in the city. No matter how well they are maintained, public parks will always be over crowded on a nice warm sunny weekend where you kids have to wait for their turn to get on the slide. Build a small one in your backyard with a nice porch swing to go with where you can relax and have all the privacy you need, provided there is a wall which splits the shared backyard space.
Plenty of space: Compared to renting two bedroom apartments or even a nice condo in the city, duplex will always feature more space and all the power outlets you can install to make sure there is enough for the number of appliance and kitchen utilities you can install. The living space and communal areas will also be spaced out to maximize comfort and promote a cozy living.
