- Townhome | A house on a small footprint in a city. It is a two or three floor single-family residence. The small footprint of the townhouse allows it to be within walking or mass transit distance of business.
- Mountain Home | A home in association with property in the foothills or mountains.
- Investment Property | Real estate that generates income or is otherwise intended for investment purposes rather than as a primary residence. Purchased specifically to generate profit through rental income and/or capital gains.
