A recent article in the Lexington Herald-Leader called “Duplex Living” highlights several benefits that duplexes provide for both the duplex owner occupant buyer or renter and also for the duplex investor.
For the Owner Occupant Duplex Buyer or Renter:
- The ability to have seperate units but live next to extended family.
- The ability to have separate units but live near an elderly parent or grandparent.
For the Duplex Real Estate Investor:
- A good duplex creates dual cash flow.
- Some people looking to downsize may have interest in buying a halfplex.
