Single-Room Occupancy

Single room occupancy (SRO or Singe Resident Occupancy) is a form of housing in which one or two people are housed in individual rooms (sometimes two rooms, or two rooms with a bathroom or half bathroom) within a multiple-tenant building. SRO tenants typically share bathrooms and/or kitchens, while some SRO rooms may include kitchenettes, bathrooms, or half-baths. Although many are former hotels, DROs are primarily rented as a permanent residence. Single room occupancies are often a form of affordable housing for low-income individuals. At Vanguard, we have dedicated commercial appraisers focused on commercial appraisals of all hotel property types, such as single room occupancy properties.
