Lemme see the photos of the Arkansas triplex and fourplex, please? :)
Triplexes are rare. This is 4plex my old mentor & partner built. She would build a 4 plex with the end unit somewhat larger for her and her partner and rent the rest. Keep a year and put up for sale, start another 4 plex, renting her unit until it is finished. Making money back in the 90s for sure in the middle of Bentonville. This is the one she kept, sold for $415,000 last year. Bought her partner out 20 years ago for $88,000.

Duplex used to be a cookie, like an Oreo, but not a real Oreo.

On a more serious note, I engaged the Riverside City planner in a conversation today about ADU's. She was extremely well-versed (and very pleasing to the eye, which goes to credibilty in my perspective). She described a recent wave of ADU building permit requests; indicated that the long-standing Riverside city requirement that the owner live in at least one of the units of a property with a main unit and an ADU, which will become illegal to enforce come 1/1/20. She described different standards for attached versus detached ADU's; and seem to recall that she mentioned that forthcoming state mandate that will supercede minimum lot requirements for typical residential lots, although that's an issue of which I was unaware. [And did I mention how attractive she was?]

Yes. I think the new law is an expansion of the current Second Unit law. I need to read up on it.
