ViewHomes™ of Clark County: MultiGen Homes Market Report September

 

MultiGen Market Report September

Families are changing the way they live: baby boomers are taking in their parents to provide better care, millennials are enjoying the benefit of having their children grow up with grand parents in their home. This is multigenerational living, or "multigen" for short.

In 2014, the Pew Research Center reported that a record 60.6 million Americans now live in multigen households. That is nearly one in 5 households. This trend continues today as the housing market responds to the demand for multigen homes.

It's no coincidence that our specialty - view homes with "elbow room for the soul" - works well for multigen homes, too.  Sometimes they come with separate living quarters, sometimes they have the potential but need to be modified. We understand and live the lifestyle, so we know how to find homes suited for multigen living.

It also helps to know the market when you start shopping for a multigen home.  Here is a snapshot of ViewHomes™ of Clark County with dual-living features, starting at $400,000 (Note: these numbers do not include a spectacular $23,500,000 165-acre multigen property in Woodland, WA as it skews the averages.)

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.
