Multigen Living is Changing the Housing Market

Multigenerational living, “multigen” for short, is on the rise in the U.S. It has long been a tradition in other countries, but in 2014 the Pew Research Center reported that a record 60.6 million Americans now live in multigen households. That is nearly one in 5 households. This trend continues today as the housing market responds to the demand for multigen homes.

Finding a Multigen Home Requires Expertise

It’s no coincidence that our specialty – view homes with “elbow room for the soul” – works well for multigen homes, too.  Sometimes they come with separate living quarters, sometimes they need to be modified. We understand and live the lifestyle, so we know how to find homes suited for this lifestyle.

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 averages do not include a spectacular $23,500,000 165-acre multigen property in Woodland, WA)
