There are three different property types in the housing market. The largest and most influential segment is the detached market, which can be defined as a unit (home) that is not attached to any other unit.
The attached segment of the housing market is extremely diverse. There are two different kinds of property in this segment (semi-detached and row) and lots of different product options within both types.
While attached property is broadly defined as a unit that is attached to another unit by at least one common wall, there are different variations depending on the property type.
For example, semi-detached product is attached to only one other dwelling by a common wall (two dwellings attached).
The apartment segment is dynamic and made up of many different kinds of product, from the large high-density buildings in major urban centres, to medium and smaller sized multi-unit dwellings in more suburban areas—and everything in-between.
For all its subtle nuances and diverse characteristics, apartment property can be simply defined as an attached unit that has connecting enclosed hallways.
