If you see an apartment duplex for lease, it's worth looking into. If you want apartment living but to feel a bit more like you're in a house, this can be the best investment you can make in your rental future.
A duplex is part of a house but doesn't have a whole lot of units attached to it. It only has two homes in one, whereas three units would make the property a triplex and four properties would make it a fourplex. Anything more than that unit-wise, and you're looking at more of a traditional apartment building complex.
Here are reasons to consider a duplex for renting over another type of apartment.
You have some type of yard
In many cases, a duplex allows for the renters to have more of a traditional home rental feeling, even if they do share the space with some neighbors. You're more likely to have space to yourself if you get a duplex that is not surrounded by several duplexes and is just a single building with two homes on its own private lot. This way, you can get access to some type of yard, similar to the way you'd have access to a yard if you were leasing a townhome or condominium.
You have fewer neighbors and more privacy
In a traditional apartment complex, you have multiple neighbors in several units around you, underneath, above, and on all sides. In a duplex, you have a neighbor either above or below you or to either side, and that is it. If you don't want to have to rent a whole home either because of the cost of living or the responsibilities that come along with it but you do want to have some more privacy, consider an apartment duplex for rent.
You have more residential locations
While apartment complexes are often placed in the downtown areas of town, your apartment duplex for lease is more likely to be placed in a residential area near schools and parks. Unless you need to rent an apartment for work or other reasons, when you rent an apartment duplex for lease, it's going to give you more of a neighborhood feel and allow you to feel like you have more of a traditional home situation.
