Winnipeg Housing Types
Attached home: This is typically a single-family home, but it doesn’t stand alone in a residential area. It shares at least one area with another unit. This can be a wall, ceiling, or floor. Each home has its own entrance and titled as an individual housing unit.
Detached home: This is a typical single-family home. It stands by itself in a residential area. It is titled as an individual housing unit. There aren’t any shared elements of this type of home with another structure around it.
Condo: A condo is short for condominium. The units have shared areas including meeting rooms, parking lots, and hallways to the units. The building can be many different formats including low, mid, or high-rise design. It depends on the number of units. Each unit is privately owned within the condo building. All residents use the same entrances and exits, but they have unique access into their unit.
Townhouse: The middle ground between a detached or semi-detached home and a condo is a townhouse. They are single-family structures but they are attached to other units. Each of them has their own entrance. Similar to a condo, they pay various fees for maintenance. They may have some common areas they share with others in the neighbourhood.
