Property type and Subtype
Property type and Subtype describe the listing. The Property Type will tell us a listing is Residential, Condo, Multi-Family, Commercial or Business. The Subtype will describe the Property type in more detail. Below are the five Property types and their subtypes:
Residential – A place to live. Our HIS board considers a structure on a parcel a residential listing if there is an operating water supply and wastewater system.
Ohana / ADU – Permitted – These are properties that are permitted an Additional Dwelling Unit, meaning a another house for the family.
Attached – This is a Single Family house with one or more walls attached to another house. This is often the style of duplexes and townhouses.
Detached – This is your typical Single Family house.
Under Construction – This listing where the house is under construction.
Condo – This is used when selling individual condominium units.
Attached – This is a condominium unit with one or more walls attached to another unit.
Detached – Separate condo units.
Multi-Family – This is your ‘Income’ properties. This option is for when the whole building of units (2+) is for sale. You’ll notice generally the same options as Residential however instead of individual units, it’s the whole building being sold.
2 Units – Building of 2 units attached by common wall.
3 Units – Building of 3 units attached together.
4 + Units – A building of 4 units attached together.
Land – This is used when trying to sell land. There can be structures (tear downs) but only the land is being calculated into the price.
Vacant – This is land that is bare. All that is needed is to start building your structures.
Commercial – This is for properties that are zoned for commercial use. These properties are ready for a business to move in and start making money.
Food Service – This property has a full commercial kitchen and meets the codes for making and selling food products. That McDonald’s building for sale would fall under this option.
Hospitality – This is a hotel/motel for sale. This property’s primary purpose is to provide lodging for vacationers.
Industrial – This property is build for the big industrial jobs. This is for properties that are designed to manufacture products in large quantities.
Office – This is your typical office space. Its built to handle all your administrative duties.
Retail – Here is the property you want to list if you’re interested in selling goods. When your window shopping at the mall, you’re walking through Retail style properties.
Special Purpose – These properties are built to serve a very select purpose. Hospitals, Retirement Homes, Medieval Dungeons, Self Storage etc. are all examples of ‘Special Purpose’.
Warehouse – This is a large building used for storing materials, equipment, merchandise, produce, etc. in large quantity. Not your typical shed, these are large and usually very secure buildings.
