The official ARMLS stance is similar to the bedroom definition, in that we don’t have an official definition for townhouses or patio homes.
Dwelling Types in the MLS
Patio homes and Townhouses are only two of the eight different dwelling types available in the MLS:
- Single Family-detached
- Patio Home
- Apartment Style/Flat
- Gemini/Twin Home
- Mfg/Mobile Housing
- Loft Style
Your broker may be able to give you more concrete guidelines or definitions about townhouses and patio homes.
