But if you want to truly live on the ground floor, than single level homes are your only option.
For some, its the pain of steps. Others its the worry about safety. But more people are just plain sick of having to take stairs to get to the next room. Whatever the reason, it seems that single level homes are in higher demand.
With single level living, you might be giving up a little space, unless you can find a larger lot that hold such a big house footprint. Depending on price range and location, in real estate most things can come back to those two points, overall home square footage will be smaller than what you could get with a 2-3 story home on the same size footprint. But what you give up in square footage, your knees could be thanking you some day.
