Do you need/prefer a single-story home? Finding the perfect ranch-style house in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley can sometimes take work because most current real estate developers tend to maximize profits by building on smaller lots. That means most homes built in the Bay Area in recent years have been two or more stories. The "footprint" of a comparably sized one-story home needs a more considerable size lot, so fewer single stories have been constructed.
There are some fantastic single-story floor plans available to choose from! Some neighborhoods only allow ranch-style houses in those communities tend to have extra privacy. There are significantly more single-level homes in the more mature areas (before the home builders began reducing lot sizes to maximize profits), so if you are considering an older home, this might be your best place to look!
One thing to remember when shopping: one-story homes cost more to build than two-story homes. This is because a home's three most expensive components are the roof, foundation, and land, and one story requires more of all three. So the prices for a ranch-style home are generally higher than a two-story home.
