Dual Key and Duplex Property – Why Invest in Them?

Before we dive deep into the benefits of dual key properties and duplex properties, let’s get an understanding of what they are.

A dual key property is one that has two rental streams under one roof. Usually, there is either a 3 or 4 bed unit, accompanied by another full self-contained 1 or 2 bed unit, with a separate entrance. They are usually on one title and cannot be sold off separately like a duplex that is strata titled.

A duplex property is two adjoining properties on the different title, in the majority of the cases. A duplex is a house containing two homes that share a common central wall.

Now that we have a rudimentary understanding of what dual key and duplex properties are, let’s take a look at all the reasons why you should be investing in them right away!
