Use Your Guest House For Anything, Or Many Things

Some home buyers are looking for a property with a guest house for a specific reason, such as the need to care for aging parents or the desire to earn rental income. Others just like the flexibility that comes with having a guest house. It can be used periodically for out-of-town visitors or as a short-term vacation rental property. In between occupancies your guest house can become a retreat for any family member who needs extra space and privacy. It can also host a foreign exchange student, au pair, or household employee. If you have children, a guest house can provide temporary housing for recent college grads or adult children in flux. Grandchildren will delight in having a “real life” playhouse to explore.

Work From Home Like You’re At The Office
