A tale of four 2 unit homes

Traditionally, homes with secondary dwellings are wonderful investments.  Instead of receiving one income per month from a property, you will now receive two incomes.  This lowers your vacancy risk, as one empty unit doesn't eliminate all your monthly income.

A fast growing trend amongst downsizing Baby Boomers and first time buyer Millennials is purchasing a property with multiple apartments, living in one and harvesting the rental income from the others.  The demand is rising for these types of properties, as more than just rental properties, as they can be located in non-traditional rental neighbourhoods, surrounded by single homes and having large lots, driveways and gardens.
