We know that multigenerational living is becoming more popular for many reasons. Besides the economics of sharing expenses, there are the real social and emotional benifits of deepened relationships and enriched lives. Adult children have the peace of mind of taking care of their aging parents, Grandchildren have the bonus of quality time with their grandparents on a regular basis. However, we know from experience, privacy and the need for "elbow room for the soul"™ are critical factors in this lifestyle.
Finding the perfect multi-gen home for your purposes can be a challenge. Certainly, if the house is listed with separate living quarters or a separate residence, that's a given, but they are not common. However, there might be other features that will make the situation work, sometimes with some minor remodeling. A second kitchen in the daylight basement, or an office over the garage that already has plumbing. Local zoning codes will also determine what can or cannot be done. This is where an agent who is experienced with multi-gen houses or, better yet, lives the lifestyle, can help you find the right home.
It also helps to know what the market looks like when you start shopping for a multi-gen home. Here is a snapshot of ViewHomes™ of Clark County with multi-gen features priced starting at $450,000:

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.
