There are many reasons single family residences are the most popular type of home in America:
More space: Single family residences are larger than an average house, townhomes and condominiums. Perfect for large families who need lots of living and storage space.
Entertaining space: People looking for an entertainment home to host family get-togethers or parties usually have more space.
More privacy: A single family residence does not share walls and maintains a good distance from other homes, the living situation is usually more private and quieter than it would be in an average single family house.
