Investing in single family property is not that safe more so in the instances of paying the mortgage since if the single tenant moves out you will not receive the rent to deal with you mortgage. But if you have a multifamily property housing 10 tenants and two happens to move out, you will still receive the rents from the remaining 8 tenants something that will help you go about your mortgages.

In case you have 10 single family properties spread in various locations, you will have to move back and forth from one property to another or employ agents to manage them something that is more expensive in the long run. On the other hand with the multifamily developments you will easily manage the property since everything is located in one area and if need be you will just need one agent to manage your property.
