One-story homes are some of the most attractive homes on the market for a variety of reasons. Because everything is on one level, efficiency increases. When engineering the heating and cooling system, for example, it’s easier to control temperatures on one level. Heat rises. That often makes two-story homes have varying degrees of warmth as you climb the stairs from the first floor to the second.
One story homes are also a top choice for ease of movement, which is perfect for empty nesters who want to create a home to age in place. With one level, flow is everything. There are no stairs to break up the open spaces, nor are there worries about difficult transitions from the living and sleeping spaces.
