1 story vs. 2 story SFR - opinions?

3 Replies

Does anyone have any opinions (preferably backed by experience) on whether 2 story SFR rentals are "as good/better/worse" than 1 story SFR rentals?

i know these are very general, but i was thinking that maybe renting out 2 story homes might limit the tenant pool that gets attracted to it.  i.e. elderly, disabled, young children, etc.  im not really talking about financials here, more just practicality.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

I own one two story SFR. The rest are single story. I haven't had it long enough to determine if there is a noticeable difference in the amount of potential tenants. If your market has a lot of two story homes I would think that is an indication that they are readily accepted.
