"The Houston Properties Team was absolutely amazing. I had initially listed with a different realtor that was recommended by a neighbor with very poor results. It was even more difficult because I was no longer in Houston and the trust I had put in the other agent was definitely taken advantage of. However, when I found Kim with the Houston Properties Team, all that changed. I was informed throughout the process and when she promised something would be done, it was. Before the experience with her, I swore off ever even considering purchasing a home again. She restored my faith in the real estate world." – Jeanette (Google Review)

They consistently provided us with reports and advice on how to proceed. All their efforts not only lead to a successful and lucrative close, but also eliminated a great deal of the anxiety and pressure.” – Arpita Niranjan

Houston Single Family Homes Defined

Single-family homeownership means that you own the structure plus the land (from the center of the earth to infinity) upon which it sits.

A patio home is a type of single-detached home that is typically smaller compared to a single-family home. They are usually built in rows (similar to townhomes) and own the land upon which the structure sits.

While some single-family homes sit on a property line (or two), they usually don't share a wall with a neighbor. Townhomes share a wall with the units immediately next to them.

Condos and lofts, on the other hand, are completely different kinds of assets. You own airspace and share ownership of the building's common areas. Monthly fees cover maintenance of amenities and exteriors.

The benefits of owning a single-family home have its benefits (vs. townhomes or condos or lofts), but there are a few downsides.
