Your Neighbor in Real Estate

Back to the Way We Were

Back to the Way We Wereold man

    A recent multi-generational study conducted by the Pew Research Center, Washington, D.C., showed that multi-generational living has been  rising over the past ten years.

    Although your house may have been home to a traditional family of a mom, dad and two kids, perhaps staging your house as a fit for multi-generations is the way to go, or at least to have the option for it.

    More parents and grandparents are finding a need to move in with family, as many can no longer afford the increasing rates of the adult communities where they once lived. Also, the economic climate is forcing many kids to return home once their schooling is done. This has even happened in my own household.

    So you may want to highlight features such as finished walkout basements and bonus bedrooms today more than ever.

    When selling your home, you need to look at the process from the perspective of all buyers, not just what has been traditional. Consider how a multi-generational family might use the various spaces available, and give homebuyers options to easily go from single-family to multi-generational living.

    Inter-generational living is easier when each family subunit has its own space. So,it is best if there is more than one common area so that children and adults have spaces to relax in without everyone having to spend all their free time in the same room together.
   
    Another thing for home sellers to consider when it comes to attracting multi-generational buyers is the home’s accessibility for people who might be living with aging parents who use wheel chairs or walkers.

    Creating a complete, accessible living space on one level with safety features can make a home attractive to people of all ages.

This is not a new concept. At one time, it was how we all lived!
