Share That House

Have you thought about sharing a home? Have you thought about a home for multi-generations? 


There might be many reasons such as the rapid rate of retiring baby boomers, boomerang kids, world or business travelers who don't want to leave their home vacant, college children, or seniors who want to stay and age in place in the home they love. 

Grandparents move in to look after their grandchildren; an older relative may move in to be cared for to eliminate the expense of retirement communities or nursing homes or a young adult child moves home after college or a divorce.



Sharing a home with friends, or colleagues, or those who may travel together has brought the extended family concept into focus. Some people are looking to live in a nice home in a good neighborhood that sharing a home would make it possible. Sharing the house expenses makes good sense. 


These same homes that are good for multi-generations would work for co-ownership. And you don't need to be related to share a home.


Here are a few properties in different styles, different neighborhoods, and different price ranges that could be shared, co-owned, or even rented depending on the situation.

Check out each one:


25 Highfield Court 21030


8978 Furrow Ave 20142


 2911 Montebello Terrace 21214


315 Northlands Court 21078


8511 Arborwood Rd 21208
