You forgot to embolden the part about not using descriptors such as 2 stories
Oops....did I forget to do that? :icon_mrgreen:
Doesn't matter. If a style has a market name that is the same as a descriptive, it doesn't conflict with that sentence because your not reporting it as a descriptive, rather you are reporting the name of the
design style that is applicable within the local market area.
I never state 2 story....rather...I state 2 level.
Is that a ranch with a basement?
LOL...you aint from California. :laugh:
In deciding if your work product will pass through the portal or not, ask yourself, "What would Hal do." (Hal-2001 Space Odyssey)
VA and FHA do not go through "the portal", thus the point of my original question...
A "2 level" could mean 2 story, raised ranch, bilevel, Cape COD, 1.5 story, ....
I have to agree. Just because a market buyer says "I want a 2-story" doesn't mean they don't differentiate among DESIGN. Even before UAD, I would scratch my head doing reviews when someone put "2 story" for design. We have 2 story ranches, 2 story territorials, 2 story Sears Craftsman Bungalows, 2 story Victorians, 2 story Santa Fes (what's the plural of that? Santa Fi?), etc...and you know what, the market perceive a difference in the design even if the typical market buy refers to it initially as a 2-story: that reference by a buyer only means "when you show us houses, don't show us anything less than 2 stories, regardless of design."
If there is a particular design that was unique that was truly known by the market, then you would state that style. Most 2 stories are eclectic and are known as a "2 story"
