Brighton Pet Rescue Centers

One of the best things about owning your own home is having plenty of space for your four-legged friends. Many of the Brighton homes for sale have large, fenced-in yards, making them ideal for families with dogs.

If you're thinking about adding a dog to your family after you settle into your new home, our REALTORS® suggest visiting a few of the local shelters. Since April 23rd is National Lost Dog Awareness Day, now is a great time to consider giving a fur-ever home to a rescued pet. Here are five local area shelters where you can go to meet your new best friend.

Buying a House Multigenerational Living

Multigenerational households are growing rapidly.

The popularity of multigenerational households, where parents, children, and grandparents all live together under one roof, is a growing trend in the United States. It's known as "Multigenerational Living," and it's not going away anytime soon. A study by PEW Research found that in 2018, 20 percent of the U.S. population (64 million people!) were living in multigenerational homes. This is a significant increase from the 26.8 million people who lived this way in the 1960s.

When Our REALTORS® speak to families looking for multigenerational homes for sale in Brighton, they cite a variety of reasons including the rising cost of healthcare, family finances, and children who have moved back home after college. No matter what the reason, multigenerational living can and does work, as long as you have the right attitude and the right type of house.

So how do you find a home that's suitable for a larger number of people and designed to make everyone happy? Start with these tips.
