Boston Houses for Sale - Boston Residential Real Estate (attached)

Below are some definitions of the different property types in Boston which are classified as attached homes.

Link: This style of housing looks like a separate unit but is linked underground by either a concrete wall connecting two foundations or a steel rod stretching from foundation to foundation. These dwellings may be a two-storey style, bungalow style, etc., but it is most important they be identified as a link. Legal description must be checked carefully to determine if a dwelling is a link.

Semi-detached: This type of housing in Boston contains two separate dwelling units attached each on its own lot. May share a common wall or be separated by a garage or carport. Styles include semi-bungalow, semi-split, and semi-two-storey.

Duplex (Up and Down): This is a building that consists of two dwelling units, one above the other under the ownership of a single person.

Triplex: This is a building which consists of three units, all owned by the same person.

Row Unit: This is a style of housing in which three or more dwelling units of similar design and sizes are attached together, each on its own lot with separate ownership.

Townhouse: Same as above, usually with a garage or carport.

Apartment: One unit of a complex of self-contained ownership units lying within a low, mid or hi-rise building offering common facilities such as hallways, parking lots, elevators, etc. Each self contained apartment may be on one or more levels.
