Why Buy a Patio Home: 3 Key Benefits of Main-Level Living


As a homeowner, you want your house to match your lifestyle and needs. Not everyone desires or dreams of multiple stories to personalize, live in, and maintain. Patio homes offer many advantages for those looking for something a bit simpler for their household. Read on to learn more about the key benefits of main-level living with a patio home.

Convenient, Low-Maintenance Living

Patio homes don’t necessarily come with a patio as the name suggests. The key characteristic is that they most commonly feature a single-story layout and max out at one-and-a-half stories. That means everything you need is on the first floor, including the “owner’s suite” or master bedroom. No need to climb up and down stairs to get throughout the home, which also offers safety and comfort for young children and elderly residents/visitors. Additionally, main-level living requires less maintenance and hassle for cleaning.

Versatile Design and Organization

Along with ease and comfort, patio home layouts provide versatile design options and a cohesive flow between all the rooms and living areas. They also often feature additional rooms and spaces for you to use however you please: guest room, play space for children, home office or workout area, and more.

Combination of Longevity and Salability

Considering the versatility, low-maintenance lifestyle, and other benefits of main-level living, it’s no wonder that patio homes have been increasing in popularity. They provide an ideal option for older couples looking to downsize their space and upkeep responsibilities (especially since patio homes can often be part of a larger community with maintenance included), as well as young homeowners and families who want a comfortable place to call home long term. This also means value and potential if/when you decide to sell in the future.
