Not Just For In-Laws

So many times we call a part of a home an in-law suite but it may be for extended family, friends wanting to share, caretakers, grandchildren, college kids, boomerang kids, and into day's world a quarantine area.

Yes, my sister in law can not visit her grands without a 2 week isolation period.

So imagine traveling out of state, being separated for 2 weeks to spend a few days or a week with the family. Tough times! There are many who are not able to visit, to travel, and are kept from their loved ones.

What I need are homes that can be for multi-generational, that can be shared, that parents can live with kids, that grown kids and families can live with other friends or siblings.

There is a  wonderful team Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD in Washington who specializes in multi-generational homes.

 I had the privilege of hearing their presentation today.

They practice what they preach. Debb's parents a sister and family all moved together. They share a home, that was well thought out and well planned.  Enjoyed hearing about their contracts with each other.

 

 

DO you have a home in Baltimore, any size, any condition that could be customized for multi-gen?

Do you have a  home in Baltimore that is already set up with separate space? 

 

Think about selling your Baltimore home

That was a very interesting talk with Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I found the information about agreements/contracts to be eye-opening.

Hi Margaret- what a wonderful post about yesterday's Zoom meeting.  The most interesting takeaway for me, as it was for Kat Palmiotti was the part about the agreements and contracts. I know for me I would definitely need a lot of "ME" room.

What an interesting concept. I would very much like to hear more about this topic. Sounds like a perfect way to evolve some of the living patterns we now have. Is there a podcast?

Dear Margaret,

Extended family/friend living is much more common in other cultures & was also here before the second world war. I see it making a comeback too. Having clear rules about living together is probably a good idea. Sounds like it was an excellent presentation.

Hi Margaret:

Debb and Bernie gave a great presentation, with so much helpful information on working with clients seeking multigenerational living. They would be the people I would personally reach out to if I had any questions.

Such a big trend, the muli generational home!  Back in the old days, relatives would try to buy homes close to each other and stay in the same neighborhood for life. Not anymore! But I see more and more families who want their older relatives close by--if not on the same property

If I where building a home I would definitely add an extra guest/caretaker suite or two, I definitely see the added value. 🏡
