News of Clark County: MultiGen Market Report

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

Multi-Gen Market Report

For several years we have lived next to my elderly parents, and now share a residence with them.  We have the luxury of enough space for privacy and separate living areas, but the convenience of being able to help them with meals, daily chores, and medical appointments. We never thought we would be part of a major trend, but this lifestyle has become mainstream and is growing. The demand for multigenerational homes continues to grow each year.

In addition to the economics of shared expenses, there are social and familial benefits of deepened relationships and enriched lives. Adult children have the peace of mind of improved care for their aging parents. Grandchildren have the bonus of quality time with their grandparents on a regular basis.

We think it's no coincidence that our specialty - view homes with "elbow room for the soul" works well for multigen homes, too.  We know how to evaluate homes on larger lots with the potential for additional living quarters. Whether separate living quarters, or shared space, we understand and live the lifestyle, so we know how to find the right multigen home.

It also helps to know what the market looks like 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 the spectacular $23,500,000 165-acre multi-gen property featured above as it skews the averages.)

52 Active Listings - $439,900 to $4,500,000

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.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

When you live it like you do I would think it would be a big plus for selling multi-generational homes. Love the pic of the home. It has quite the view.

You are clearly the go to Realtors for anyone wanting or needed a multigenerational property, as well as a terrific resource for the rest of us on the issues to consider. It's nice to see that there are so many properties that serve this niche in your market and with a fair amount of variety, providing a range of options for buyers.

Debb and Bernie, you two are the perfect real estate agents to assist buyers looking for a multigen home. Who better than someone who's living it.

Dear Debb and Bernie,

One of our clients whose children moved to North Carolina and had a baby, just bought a family style compound, so that they can all be together for their second home.  The concept is definitely growing.  A
