RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION

Residential construction is different than commercial construction because these buildings are used for people to live in instead of working in.  While many people think that single-family homes are residential construction, the category also includes multi-family homes, apartments, condominiums, and even mobile homes.

For each residential construction project, a piece of land is purchased, cleared, and graded.  The drainage and other features are added and then the construction of the building takes place.  Once the home is finished, a person moves in and the contractor moves on to their next project.

TYPES OF RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION

  • Single Family Homes
  • Condominiums
  • Townhouses
  • Multi-Family Homes

Single Family Homes

Single-family homes are often found in neighborhoods or out in the country.  These homes can have small yards, or enough green space to include a few farm animals, depending on where they are located. It is possible for people to create the home of their dreams when they construct a single-family home, because they are not restricted to what their neighbors want.  These homes always sell for more than a condo or townhome, which may not be helpful for a purchase, but it is definitely a plus when it comes time to sell

Condominiums

Condominiums, or condos, are often found in cities, but they can be in smaller towns as well.  Many homeowners prefer to own one of these residential construction homes because they have lounge areas, pools, gyms, and many other amenities that single-family homes do not have. These types of residences often come with HOA fees, which are homeowner’s association fees, and they cover the costs of maintaining the pool, the hallways, and any other maintenance that is needed in the building or around the grounds.

Townhouses

Townhouses are a combination of single-family homes and condos, where they offer some privacy and not a ton of maintenance.  A few townhomes will have HOAs, but they are still more affordable than most single-family homes.  The only downside to owning a townhome is that there are not all the extra amenities like a condo has. 

 

Multi-Family Homes

There are not too many multi-family homes constructed each year, but that doesn’t mean that contractors will not build them when they get a request.  These residential construction units are often used as an investment, which is why some contractors will build them to earn a little extra money for their own investments. The best part of these homes is that more than one generation can live in them yet have their own personal space at the same time.
