Real estate listings in Carlsbad

Are you looking for the perfect solution for your older loved ones who hate the idea of moving into a rest home?

A home with a granny flat might just be the answer you need!

Our grandparents and relatives are important. No matter what you do in life, who you become, where you live, who you are with —their role in our life is unquestionable. They nurture us and take care of us. That is why  we have to make sure they are provided with care and comfort as they age.

A home with a granny flat is a perfect alternative for those who want their elderly relatives to live with them.

The home is called a granny flat because it is a popular way for families to accommodate their aging parents. It is also sometimes called a granny pod, mother-in-law unit, in-law apartment, bonus unit, casita, and carriage unit.

It is a self-contained living space usually situated on the grounds of a single-family home. It is normally designed for one or two persons and can be detached, or attached to the other home. It is known as an accessory apartment or accessory dwelling unit in the building industry.

A granny flat has many other uses aside from being a residence for older loved ones. It can be used as a home office, especially if you can’t work inside your main home.

It can also be used as temporary residence for adult children. Rather than waste money on rent, you can let your adult kids stay in your granny flat as they make arrangements to buy their own homes.

 

A granny flat can also be a source of extra income.

If no one is going to use it, you can rent it out and make extra cash.

If you want a home with a granny for your elderly relatives, here are several things that you should consider:

 

The budget

Just like with any other purchase, you need to start with your budget. How much are you willing to spend on a property with a granny flat? Determining your budget will save you time and energy because you don’t have to look at properties that are out of your range.

Comfort

The comfort of your elderly relatives should be your major concern when looking for homes with granny flat in Carlsbad. You should know their needs and priorities. In fact, it is best if they are consulted before making a decision.

Ideally, you will want a home that is user-friendly. Some granny flats include grab handles in the bathroom, wider doorways for wheelchairs, or ramps at the entrance.

 

Size

Another thing you should consider when buying a Carlsbad home with granny flat is the size. Granny flats typically consist of one or two rooms and a small living room area.

Prospective buyers are usually advised to choose a smaller flat. The advantage of choosing a smaller flat is that it will be easier to maintain, both for the families as well as the elderly. We know that as we age, it becomes more difficult for us to maintain and clean our houses.
