Many people dream of being able to invest in a rental property but feel that it is a difficult financial goal to achieve. If you are able to do it, you can increase your monthly income, have more to put away in your savings, grow your net worth, and—best of all—have somebody else paying off your mortgage. One way to make this dream come true, especially if you don’t have a lot of extra cash to invest, is to build a duplex. You can live in one unit and rent out the other one, decreasing your monthly living expenses and allowing yourself to save for the future.

One of the Adair Homes floor plans that investors love is the Pines, a stylish and affordable duplex that you can either live in or rent out for even more monthly income. Each 1,200-square-foot unit has three bedrooms and one-and-a-half-baths, making it the perfect size for a small family.

6 Adair Homes that Investors Love

Whether you’re a seasoned investor or just starting to think about creating an income stream for your retirement, real estate investing is a smart long-term plan. While some investors choose to flip existing homes, there are a lot of reasons that building a new custom home is a smarter path. The main reason is predictability. When you buy an existing home, you have no idea what you’re going to find when you start the remodeling process, which can blow your budget and potentially turn your investment into a money pit. On the other hand, when you build new, you know how much it is expected to cost, when the work will be finished, and what the final product will look like, because you get to make all of the decisions.

Choosing a Floorplan for Narrow Lot Homes

Building a new custom home in an urban area with smaller property sizes can present some challenges, especially when the lot is narrow. Local regulations may require setbacks that make the possible footprint even smaller, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a home with everything you want and need. You just have to work with a floor plan that was designed for narrow lots.

In fact, building on a narrow lot offers some advantages that prompt many families to seek out this type of property. It typically requires less maintenance because there is less yard space to care for. Homes on narrow lots also tend to feel more private because there are fewer windows at the front and the living spaces are deeper in the home.

However, these advantages are sometimes double-edged swords. Some of the challenges that exist include deciding where to place the garage, ensuring privacy with close property lines on the sides of the home, and maximizing outdoor living space. Many homeowners also struggle with making the interior spaces feel open and large with a narrow footprint.

The professionals at Adair Homes have thought of all these challenges and created 12 narrow lot floor plans that you can customize for your lifestyle.

As home values continue to rise in the Pacific Northwest, it can be challenging for some buyers to find a home that will work for their needs without breaking the bank. However, you can increase your chances for success by building an affordable home using Adair’s innovative project management system. And, for buyers who qualify, leveraging the USDA loan can help stretch every dollar even further, bringing homeownership within reach for a growing number of customers.

However, Adair is helping to alleviate this problem by offering new-construction homes within these budget-friendly price points, enabling buyers to get the home they want, on their own property, at a price that would otherwise be impossible for a brand-new home.
