Frequent 123Landlord questions - Properties vs Buildings

So single family homes are properties, not buildings?

 

Yes - typically in the system most of our users refer to single family homes as properties, and don't use buildings.  We use building to represent the physical structure that might contain more than 1 unit, like a multi-plex, 4-plex, or large apartment building. 

If you own detached homes that have one lease, you probably don't need buildings UNLESS you want an extra higher level of reporting and grouping - sometimes people like to put multiple properties (even if they are homes) in a "building" record called "Group A" for example, then they can run their reporting on group A.  This is more of a hack/workaround then standard way of operating in the system. Up to you.
