Love "ranch" homes? You're not alone!

Ranch styled homes remain popular among home buyers looking for specific features. The ease of entry and lack of stairs make the layout more accessible than most. This type of home is typically built with a naturally existing open floor plan and high potential for a future addition. 

Ranches are normally smaller in square footage, which means less maintenance and clean up, and often have a lower asking price. 

Military members are beginning their PCS house searches now, so take a look on MilitaryByOwner what a ranch looks like coast to coast and how the price points vary.

 Fort Bragg, North Carolina - Surrey Road, Fayetteville, For Sale: $315,000, Listing MBO400430

In North Carolina, you’ll find the Southern variety of a ranch. Located in a gated golf community, Gates Four, this home comes complete with a front yard full of azalea blossoms to greet you throughout the warm months. Inside, unique wood flooring, cathedral ceilings, and granite counter tops are just the start, because technology has a place here, too. A central vacuum system, intercom, and water maintenance for both the front and backyards is installed and operational. The details really do make this a purchase worthy of serious consideration. 

It doesn’t appear ranch-style homes will be disappearing from the housing market anytime soon. Why should they? Space, easy access, and affordability are all qualities buyers continue to search for.
