‘Single family house’

A single family home is defined as a dwelling designed to house a single family only. This means there are no common walls with other dwellings, the house has been built on its own parcel of land, and that it has its own private entry and exit to a street or thoroughfare. This definition excludes apartments, which are significantly smaller, and have actually been reducing in size over the same time period.

‘Housing in the U.S.’

In 2018, there were a total of 79.36 million owner occupied and 43.11 million renter occupied housing units in the United States. Single family homes are by far the most common type of residential property purchased in the United States, but there are more multi-dwelling housing units than single family homes on the rental market.
