If you’re planning to build a duplex, check out the Top 3 Best-Selling Duplex Plans. Each multifamily plan is an excellent investment property. Construction will be efficient and economical because each duplex plan is a simple design.

Why Build a Duplex?

Single family homes are always popular in the world of real estate. However, there are many hidden benefits to owning a multifamily property. Consider the following reasons to build a Best-Selling Duplex Plan:

Firstly, building a duplex will result in more money. Owning a duplex will double your rental income. A single family home will bring only a limited amount of rent. However, the multifamily unit will result in twice the rental income from one lot. Furthermore, if one tenant breaks their lease, your cash flow will continue from the second unit. This arrangement will keep you afloat in tough economical times. Building a duplex is a safe investment decision.

Secondly, purchasing a Best-Selling Duplex Plan will benefit multiple generations of your family. Build a duplex as your starter home. A young couple can live in one side of their duplex and start a family. Rent the other side to help pay for the mortgage. In addition, you can keep a close eye on your tenants. In years to come, your family can move to a larger single family home and continue leasing your duplex property. When it’s time to retire, you may choose to downsize and go back to the duplex. Families with aging parents will benefit because each generation will enjoy close (yet private) living space. Building a duplex is a strategic investment decision.

Below, we have 3 great options including one and two-story duplex plans.
