When we work with Multi-gen clients, it's generally a discovery process as the various family members weigh in on their wishes and needs. In this particular case, there are young children, their parents, and the mother's parents who will all be living together. In the beginning, they thought one shared household might work, but as we looked at properties and discussed privacy issues, they realized a totally separate living space for the parents would be the best match. Due to school and work considerations, there were only several areas to focus our search. In addition, they really want acreage, so we needed to look in more rural locations. We finally found the right property and are delighted to learn our offer, turned in yesterday afternoon, has been accepted. This home, located on nearly 3 acres in Brush Prairie, has a separate ADU and the main house has the right number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and a required den/office.
It's such an enjoyable experience to help people on this journey as we too live in a Multi-gen home. Our situation is a bit different though as my sister and her husband live here too, to help care for our aging parents. It's a decision we all made nearly two years ago and we haven't regretted it for a minute. However, we do know how important it is to discuss all the issues up front - rather than muddle your way through them as things happen. We believe it's our experience and enthusiasm for the lifestyle that gives our clients added value - and critical information. In fact, we are the only REALTORS® in Clark County who specialize in Multi-Generational properties and lifestyles. It's a great fit with our overall niche ViewHomes™ of Clark County with Nature As Neighbors™. Our clients share our passion for homes located on larger parcels with views of nature and elbow room for the soul.
