Debb Dodges Raindrops - Exploring Clark County Washington

View Homes of Clark County - Multi-Gen Market Report

©RMLS Multi-Gen Home

We are receiving more requests for multigenerational houses now that the lifestyle has become more mainstream. Besides the economics of sharing expenses, there are the real social and familial benefits 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.

Finding the perfect multi-gen home for your purposes can be a challenge.  Certainly, if the house is listed with separate living quarters, 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.  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:

74 Active Listings - $450,000 to $23,500,000

17 Pending - $450,000 to $1,295,000

If you are looking for a home for Multi-Gen living, you can start your search here. Or, if you have a home with Multi-Gen features that you want to sell, call us - we are specialists in this field, and we have buyers ready to move!


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”.
