Pros of Multi Family Homes

The pros of building multifamily housing include the following:

  • Higher cash flow:

 Although multifamily housing generates greater expenses than a single-family home, multifamily can bring significantly higher returns through monthly rent payments from multiple tenants.

  • Potentially easier financing: 

Some banks and lenders view multifamily houses as less risky because they bring in more predictable cash flow than single-family housing, and a vacancy impacts rental income less.

Cons of Multi Family Homes

Multifamily apartment could also bring a few challenges:

  • Cost: Recently increasing labor and materials costs have caused a surge in construction costs for multifamily properties, often in the millions of dollars.

Maintenance: Maintenance for multifamily housing is often quite involved since a single apartment complex could have hundreds of residents. Property managers usually oversee apartment complexes and have a dedicated maintenance team.

Multi Family Home Examples

Multifamily housing comes in several styles, including:

Apartment Buildings
  • Apartments typically have at least five dwelling units in the same structure and are often part of an apartment complex. Some multifamily apartments have hundreds of units within the same structure. Residents may share entrances and amenities like a pool, playground, or common area.
  • Duplexes contain two separate units in the same structure and may have a shared entrance. These housing units are typically stacked or only share a single wall on the same level. Triplexes are similar structures containing three housing units instead of two.
  • Townhouses include multiple dwelling units in a row, where each unit shares a wall with the units beside it. These residential structures may have two or three floors and typically have more square footage than an apartment unit.

Components of Building Multi Family Homes

The components of building multi family homes are similar to the components of other commercial construction projects. A multifamily housing construction project generally goes through five stages

  • Development and Planning:

A multifamily housing construction project’s development and planning stage creates a framework that guides the project to successful completion. In this stage, you’ll choose a location, set a budget and select a general contractor or a design-build firm.

  • Preconstruction

The preconstruction phase involves obtaining the proper paperwork for construction. In this stage, a design-build firm may create more concrete cost estimates, drawings, and potential schedules to help you understand the project’s scope. The design and construction teams might complete final site assessments to prepare for construction.

  • Design

Once final site assessments are complete, the architectural and engineering teams create detailed schematics for the multifamily housing project to ensure the building meets code requirements. This step involves planning the building’s plumbing and HVAC systems, electrical supply, and systems like parking.

Developers and architects consider several elements in the design phase, including
  • Aesthetics
  • Efficiency
  • Sustainability
  • Affordability
