If you are needing to rent an additional apartment for a family member in Las Vegas, you are no doubt seeing that monthly rates are about $1,000 per month or more.
Lennar's Next Gen homes offers a solution for those who need extra space for others. Homeowners still have their main home and a separate private living space. It is available at six Lennar communities throughout the valley.
The builder has three of these Next Gen homes available for immediate move in.
Lennar has seen "tremendous" interest in this floor plan since it was introduced last year, and buyers have snagged these homes up pretty rapidly, said Joy Broddle, Lennar sales manager.
The economy has dramatically contributed to Lennar's decision to build this type of product. Many aging parents have seen their retirement investments diminish during recent years and many college-age children are finding it necessary to move back home. With housing typically being the largest part of the monthly budget, moving in together is an option many are embracing.
"The opportunity for families to share a mortgage makes a lot of economic sense for many families and is a extraordinary value," Broddle said. "Lennar's Next Gen - the home within a home - is essentially two homes with one payment, making living together affordable, comfortable and flexible to your needs."
The private suite portion on the first floor of this plan includes a separate entrance, living space, kitchenette with General Electric appliances and stainless steel sink, private bedroom, full bath, washer and dryer, one-car garage and an intimate outdoor living space with barbecue stub. Plus, Timberlake 42-inch maple cabinetry and upper-crown molding are included as standard.
Lennar designed this floor plan to be incorporated into the main home in a way that allows it to be a separate space but also offers direct access from the main house, depending upon the family's needs.
"Imagine having your parents nearby to help care for your children, or saving money on adult care for them because they live with you," Broddle said. "Or being able to provide enough space for your child who needs to move in after college - now you can have all that and still have the size home you need for your family.
