Independence and Safety
As parents age, they frequently need a little extra help, but they also need their own independence. What better place than to have senior family members only a short distance away. This Riverside property includes two homes.
Lasting memories for children. One of the greatest comforts my parents had was that my grandparents were able to grow old in their own home only 50 yards from my parents. As a child, I spent many hours with my grandparents as a youth because of this close proximity. Each day after school, I would run over and say hi. My grandfather, always a hobbyist, often showed me a new model airplane that he couldn’t wait to let me fly in the ample back yard. My grandmother almost always had a little snickers bar. I still have deep, loving memories of my grandparents because of this rare living opportunity.
More importantly, as my grandparents came to the end of life, we could check on them every day, many times per day. But they were always in their own home. This comfort, this certainty of their safety, was priceless.
Completely remodeled. In 2017, this house was almost completely remodeled. The kitchen and bath were completely redone, all the way down to the framing. Plus the entire house plumbing, septic, electricity, insulation, tile flooring, carpeting, and brand new windows. We even put in new concrete walks with slopes instead of steps so elderly or disabled would have no problems entering. It is a beautiful little home for anyone.

Extra Income Rental
After my grandparents passed, “grandma’s house” became a rental which helped my parents meet expenses as their own children began going to college and on missions. Over the years, it has always been a source of extra revenue to my parents or to myself.
The new type of profitable rental is AirBNB. Many people are looking for a simple, quiet, self-contained getaway and will pay hundreds per night. This method of leasing out your spare house can provide as much or more than rental income but you don’t have contracts and neighbors all the time.
This Riverside estate has numerous options as your family is young, growing, or aging.
