Most Popular Type of Home in Every Major American City

Home Types By City

The detached, single-family home — far and away the most common style of housing in America — is rare in Washington, D.C. Only about one in 10 homes inside the District is designed this way, with a private front door to the city, maybe a yard in the back, some buffer space keeping the neighbors at bay. Windows all the way around!

Instead, we live differently here: with meager lawns (if we have any at all), common stoops, shared walls (or ceilings), and echoes of our neighbors’ dubious TV choices.

The District is a city of row homes and modest apartments, which makes the feel of the place — and your housing options here — significantly different from what you’d find in New York or Chicago or Kansas City.
