What’s a Zero Lot Line Home?

Well, since I’m doing one now and haven’t posted in a while, here’s a quickie. 

Sometimes you hear of a home being referred to as a “zero lot line” home.  While this might be somewhat self explanatory, I tried looking for a photo example online and came up dry.

Notice on the right side of the main home in the photo, the wall lines up with the leftmost wall of the adjacent home.  These are zero lot line homes.  As you can guess, the lot size is smaller (3500SF in this case).  This is great for builders as they can cram more homes into an area and it’s a good option for homeowners.  Typically when you are moving up the housing chain you might rent an apartment, buy a condo and then buy a single family home.  But perhaps you’re not ready for a full on home with a big lot and the costs associated with maintenance.  Zero lot line homes are typically a tad less expensive and have less lawn/lot to maintain.  A win win for the “tweener” who is looking to buy their first single family home.
