Buying your first home? Consider a duplex…

The best first home may be a multi-unit home, because having tenants pays off.

Duplexes — a single building with separate units and entrances — are among the least popular homes to buy in the U.S. Only 2% of first-time homebuyers purchased a duplex in 2016, according to the National Association of Realtors, an industry group, compared to 82% of those who bought a detached single-family home. Other options included condos in five-plus unit buildings and townhouses.

Purchasing a home with multiple units, where you live in one and others live next door, upstairs or downstairs, has its perks: mainly, their rent is contributing to your mortgage, you don’t get to share a bathroom and kitchen with your tenant and you’re close by if anything goes wrong.
