What Are The Benefits Of Our Duet Homes?

When you’re thinking about your next home, there’s more to consider than square feet, number of bedrooms, and the style of the kitchen cabinets. You need a home that supports your lifestyle—that has what you want, where you want it, and without the things you don’t want. Consider the choice of our unique duet homes. What are duet homes? Simply put, duet or twin homes share a common wall and look like two identical houses. But the duet home is two properties on two lots, with two separate owners and two yards. 

Six Benefits of Our Duet Homes for Sale

Choosing a duet home doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice anything. Our five distinctive duet designs Juniper I, Juniper III, Redbud I, Spruce, and Spruce II — offer generous floor plans and design possibilities. Vista Homes has duet homes for sale with open living spaces, plenty of bedrooms, ample square footage, and more! Here are some of the benefits of our duet homes: 

  1. Priced perfectly for the first-time/budget-conscious buyer. A duet home is ideal if you’re a first-time buyer who wants some extra space but doesn’t have the budget for a larger home. If you’re an empty-nester, living in a twin home allows you to ‘right-size” without sacrificing quality or style.
  2. Lives like a detached single-family home. One of the common concerns about twin or duet homes is limited living space. Not in our homes! All of our duet plans are 2 stories and over 1,700 square feet. They have features you’d find in single-family homes, such as a full kitchen with a large island, a dining area, a living room with a fireplace, a 1-car garage, outdoor living space, and more.   
  3. Luxurious finishes inside and out. Our duet homes feature the same high-quality designer finishes as our single-family homes. They offer an array of stunning selections including quartz countertops, solid wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, designer lighting fixtures, and jaw-dropping tiles. 
  4. Location, location, location. We build our duet homes in Charlotte’s up-and-coming and most walkable neighborhoods like NoDa, Plaza Midwood, Villa Heights, Cotswold, Oakhurst, and Dilworth. When it comes to real estate, HOT new neighborhoods = great investments. Your brand new duet home is a smart buy all around. 
  5. No HOA. Our duet homes are located in progressive neighborhoods with plenty of local amenities but they aren’t built in specific communities. There are no HOA (homeowners association) dues which means more flexibility and freedom for you as a homeowner. 
  6. Investor-friendly properties. Since these are individually owned properties, with no HOAs or rental restrictions, our duet homes are ideal for investors who are seeking rental property. The modern design and low-maintenance features make for solid investments and attractive homes. 

Have we piqued your interest? We currently have one duet or twin home for sale and plenty coming down the pipeline this year. Or, if you would like to build on your own land, our Build On Your Land program ensures a stress-free journey to make your vision a reality. We combine the convenience of ready-to-build plans with the flexibility to customize certain details.

What Is The Difference Between A Duplex and Duet Home?

From the outside, the difference between a duplex and a duet home is not obvious. Duplexes and duet homes both have two attached residential units.  But the differences between a duplex and a duet home are pretty substantial. 


A duplex is a multifamily home, meaning there are multiple living units. With multifamily homes, all of these dwellings are sold together. So, if you buy a duplex, you buy both sides. Sometimes an owner will live on one side and rent the other side. Sometimes these homes are entirely rentals. These types of properties are considered income-producing or investment properties.

A duet home is considered an attached single-family home (as opposed to a detached single-family home). Each side is sold as one separate home. Usually, both sides are owner-occupied, although there could be a tenant in a duet home. They may or may not be investment properties. Duet homes may have HOA dues, since there may be private roads, shared amenities, etc. Or they could be a community of two units, each responsible for their own side.
