What's involved with owning a multifamily home? Plenty, although there's also the matter of context. Buying a duplex with the intention of living in one unit and renting the other is a simpler proposition than being the landlord of a large building with maintenance issues. Even trickier can be the process of buying an occupied rental property with the hopes of converting it to condos for sale. And then of course there's the common case of older multifamily structures in historic districts. There was a time when antique buildings were being razed right and left by developers and city planners. That has changed – the historical imprints of communities with long established roots are more valued and protected these days.

Multifamily homes account for a major portion of all residential properties in Washington Metro. It varies by neighborhood, some suburban enclaves are exclusively made up of detached single-family dwellings and some urban corridors are predominantly multifamily or commercial structures. While you'll find a wide range of choices, the major hi-rise buildings are usually sold through commercial brokers rather than the MLS system. This leaves everything from homes with separate in-law or guest quarters to mid-rise buildings that may offer up to 24 or so units. Common low and mid-rise properties include row houses, garden-style buildings. Federal, Colonial and Victorian brownstones, Art Deco buildings and more.

The need and demand for multifamily properties in Washington Metro continues to grow. This has become one of the nation's premiere destinations for new residents in recent years thanks to revitalization efforts and robust local economies. With a finite amount of land and property, the redevelopment of existing structures has become an attractive proposition. It's not only old apartment buildings or hotels but also vacant schools, industrial spaces and even houses of worship. Everywhere you look these days there seems to be multifamily buildings with dumpsters outside and signs of construction – outer facades are re-imagined, windows replaced, interior walls removed, new wood floors installed and gourmet kitchens created. Prices for multifamily homes can start at around $100,000 for a distressed property and soar well into seven-figure territory.
