News of Clark County: MultiGen Market Report

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

MultiGen Market Report

The demand for multigenerational homes continues to grow each year to the point where it has become a mainstream lifestyle. 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. 

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 a spectacular $23,500,000 165-acre multi-gen property as it skews the averages.)

57 Active Listings - $439,900 to $4,500,000
Average SQFT - 4,664

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”.

I would love to have a home with a guest house.  That would be perfect for blending families.

Hi Debb & Bernie - Nice market report. I think as the median price in our market continues to climb, we're going to see more demand for multi-gen housing, which should give a boost to that market segment. We could always use more multi-gen inventory, though.

That 23.5 million dollar property is beautiful. And the one you feature in the photos above also looks gorgeous. Interesting niche to work, space here tends to limit homeowenrs to in law suites, rather than guest cottages.

Hi Debb & Bernie, you put out a wonderful multi-gen market report for your area.  I personally think this is a very sustainable market in most areas. I think it makes a lot of sense also.
