I like to find trends in real estate. The past six months clients looking for a house with detached living quarters for in-laws, nanny, or multi-generational family living has increased. With many family's having more family members live together and grandparents raising grandchildren I thought this could be helpful to write about.
In the Pikes Peak Region MLS we currently have 25 active listings with some type of detached living quarters offering at least a bedroom or more. They range in price from $145,000 to $8,745,000. A note on the property offered at $145,000 this is a mobile home that has the zoning for an accessory dwelling or the neighboring property (also currently for sale) can be purchased and combined into one parcel if desired. For more information on these or to run your own search Colorado Springs Real Estate For Sale Search.
One example is a beautiful custom built Colorado Springs Southwest style home for sale with a mother-in-law suite off the back of the garage. If you did not know it was there you probably would not notice. Located in the Cheyenne Mountain School District (12) with The Country Club of Colorado within walking distance you have a great opportunity for social, fitness and golf available to you. Backing to option space and mountain views to the West serenity surrounds you. Between the Will Rogers shrine and the Cheyenne Mountain zoo animals to serenade you the experience is incredible.
Within this current inventory of homes for sale there are also properties East or South of Colorado Springs on acreage, mountain property or homes in Colorado Springs. Small getaways, two home properties and custom homes with detached suites offer something for everyone.
