AR Zoom - A 2020 Growing Market Trend You Should Be Aware Of...

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

Many of you know we specialize in homes located in soothing environments - ViewHomes of Clark County with Nature as Neighbors. Although, we're guessing, more of you associate us with the MultiGenerational homes niche. It's understandable, since we live in a multigeneration home ourselves. 


Multi-generational homes is a specialty many real estate agents have ignored, even though its popularity has quietly increased over the last decade. And recently, with many adult children returning home due to job-loss, or remote learning instead of in-college classrooms, the demand for multi-gen homes has really gained steam. 


Another trend we're noticing is a desire to share a self-sustaining lifestyle with two or more generations. Once again, triggered by the current state of an unsettled world. This situation generally involves a property with two separate homes, or even three. Or, a property with the potential to build more than one residence. 


There are so many factors to consider prior to purchasing and moving into a multi-gen lifestyle. We will be sharing our first-hand experience, and expertise, next Tuesday during the Active Rain Zoom meeting at 2:00 PM - EST (11-AM PST). If you want to learn more about this lifestyle from agents who have been living and specializing in it for more than 10 years, we'd love to have you join us.

 

 

Finnegan might even make an appearance!

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”.

Debb, you've done such an excellent job branding your business in two distinct home niches.  And as the go-to person in both niches, so impressive all around!  That cutey pie Finneagan is a heart warmer!

Thanks again for a great session this morning, Debb and Bernie. There are so many issues to think about and be aware of when working with multi-generational buyers. And it was so nice to see you in person instead of chatting on the phone.

Joan Cox Multi-Generational Home ownership is a new term here. Due housing (land) costs and low housing inventories we do have pressure to allow small homes in our backyards. Several of Municipalities have already set the zoning in place and guidelines.

Stay Safe and have a fun and successful week.

This segment of the market is pretty big on Maui, and right now it's a very small inventory.  But a recent update to the building code allows for a second dwelling to be built on many lots, as long as the CCR's allow it.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 I am so hoping zoning in our communities catches up with the need for ADU's for families.
