Many home buyers are looking for a one-story ranch home versus a 2-story. The number of floors your home has affects it in many ways other than just how it looks. There are many reasons for buying a one-story home. Let's look at a few of the pros.
A one-story ranch home is easier maintain. With only one-story, it means you won't have to lug the vacuum cleaner or laundry up and down stairs. With only one-level the exterior maintenance is easier on a ranch home as well. You can reach more with a power washer or when painting with only a small ladder needed.
The number of floors also affects how much you pay for your heating and cooling costs. The more rooms a home has the more energy is needed to heat and cool it. Homes with fewer rooms are more energy-efficient in most cases. And one-story homes usually have fewer rooms than their two-story counterparts. Generally, a one-story home is going to be cheaper to heat and cool than a multi-story home.
