Another Happy Ending in Waxhaw!A family, referred to me in January, had very specific but, increasingly common home-buying needs. They needed to find a large home for their larger (and still growing) family as well as one that included plenty of space for an ADU for aging parents. An ADU is also referred to as a Granny Flat or a Tiny House and it needed to be on the same property so that the parents could have their independence, yet allow for their family to care for them. It's a convenience that more and more Charlotte homebuyers are searching for. First, lifestyle (including schools) was important to this family and we narrowed down their search to the Waxhaw & Weddington areas. We didn't have to tour many homes because the lot plat was most important to them and a quick drive-by eli...
