Since it's Sunday, and we often share a story or information about Multigenerational living, it seems appropriate to write about a favorite transaction. One of our first multi-gen sales involving a busy doctor and his wife, their two little boys, and his mom who lived far away.
We got the call first, from the mom, on Christmas Eve. She was visiting her son and daughter-in-law for the holidays and was considering moving to the Vancouver area to be closer. Would we show her a few condos? Naturally, we did. We also showed her a few more the day after Christmas.
Her son tagged along for the post-Christmas tour and he wasn't very positive about any of the homes we viewed. We were perplexed a bit and could sense the woman's growing disappointment and frustration.
We offered to keep looking for a better option, however, she said she had changed her mind and apologized for wasting our time. When she returned back home, we assumed our connection was lost due to circumstances we didn't fully understand.
However, we got a call from the daughter-in-law about two weeks later. She and her husband (and mom) wanted to explore multigenerational living options. With two little boys, and the doctor's busy work schedule, they thought it might be the right answer for all of them.
And it was. They fell in love with a 6000 sq foot house with a 1200 sq ft private wing, accessed through a massive glass encased hallway. Both living spaces have their own entrances - and garages. Stunninng views, 5-acres, and plenty of wildllife delight them all year round. They have "Nature as neighbors, and elbow room for the soul™."
Another bonus, everyone loves to swim and this house has a beautiful pool.
Happily, we stay in touch, and they are all still thrilled with their living arrangement. What's not to love about this wonderful outcome?
