Note from the Pool Committee:
DHEC regulations are very strict this year
regarding taking glass into the pool area.
If glass is broken, they will close the pool
down for a week and drain the pool/
vacuum/refill it. It will cost approximately
$950.00 and the resident that brings the
glass in will be responsible for the cost.
This happened at one of our neighboring
pools last month. There are signs posted at
the pool as a reminder.
Thank you for your cooperation!

Realtor’s Corner
Bringing the Generations Together
Although your home may have been housing a traditional family of a mom, dad and
two kids, savvy real estate agents will tell you that in order to attract more buyers, staging your
house as one fit for multi-generations is the way to go.
More parents and grandparents are finding a need to move in with family, as many can
no longer afford the increasing rates of the adult communities where they once lived. Furthermore, the economic climate is forcing many kids to return home once their schooling is done.
A recent multi-generational study conducted by the Pew Research Center, Washington,
D.C., revealed that multigenerational living has been on the rise over the past decade, fueled by
demographic and cultural shifts.
“One of the things that struck me about this change is that it’s coming from all directions,” said Paul Taylor, author of the report. “More young adults are moving back home, more
elderly are moving in with their middle-age children and more middle-aged children are moving
back with their elderly parents.”
Data from the study shows that in the 10-year span between 2000 and 2009, the number
of households practicing multi-generational living increased to 33 percent, with more than 49
million Americans currently living in homes with three or more generations.
Real estate professionals are tending to highlight features such as finished walkout
basements and bonus bedrooms today more than ever. That’s why when your agent tells you that
switching out your office or transposing the basement play area to one that resembles more of a
bedroom is the way to go, you should be listening.
When selling your home, you need to look at the process from the perspective of all
buyers, not just yours. Consider how a multigenerational family might use the various spaces
available, and give prospective homebuyers options to easily transform from single-family to
multigenerational living. Therefore, any home that contains bonus space is a viable candidate
for a multigenerational buyer who’s planning to bring an ill or out-of-work family member back
into the fold.
Experts agree that intergenerational living is easier when each family subunit has its
own space. “Everyone who is going to share the home should have a private area of their own,”
said Amy Goyer, a multigenerational expert at AARP. “It is best if there is more than one common area so that children and adults have spaces to relax in without everyone having to spend all
their free time in the same room together.”
According to Cam Marston, author and founder of the research firm Generational Insight, there are a number of benefits for different generations of a family living together. “It’s
less expensive, obviously, but more importantly, they can learn from one another,” Marston
said. “Separating generations keeps them aloof from the trends and important things impacting
each generation. When they are all under one roof, they can grow up sooner and stay young
longer. It works on both ends of the generations.”
Another thing for home sellers to consider when it comes to attracting multigenerational buyers is the home’s accessibility for people who might be living with aging parents who use
wheel chairs or walkers. Creating a complete, accessible living space on one level with safety
features can make a home attractive to people of all ages.

Here’s what customers have to say:
"Gordon has done something far superior, and left my carpets looking brand new. I was so impressed with his service, quality and prices.
In this day and age, there aren't many businesses that go the extra mile and give us the services and friendliness Gordon does."
- Carol Williams
"I like how Gordon came out and cleaned my family room for FREE to see if I liked his work and, of course, he did a great job making our carpet look brand
- Cristi Craft
" When Gordon cleaned my carpets, he said they were in good shape and would look just like new when he was done. A few days later we had some
neighbors over, and they remarked, just that…The carpets looked new, which surprised them because they said that the previous owners kept many pets.
Gordon tells you what he can do, and then he does it. He is the only person I'll allow to clean my carpets.

June 15, Imagination Playground opens at The Children’s Museum of the Upstate! Imagination Playground
is a breakthrough play space that encourages child-directed, unstructured free play by providing an array of original loose parts. These large, blue foam blocks come in a unique assortment of shapes that are designed to offer variety and complexity of play through advanced geometric concepts. Angled pieces with polygons and concave
shapes encourage children to consider gravity and asymmetry. They are challenged to think ahead as they build
and play using nuanced thinking, inventive constructions, and trial-and-error learning with parts that are challenging to fit together. Curved pieces allow for more sensory and bodily interaction with the loose parts. Children
work with ergonomic contours to make moving parts, irregular compositions that require consideration of balance,
and props and accessories that fuel their dramatic play. This variety of loose parts incorporates holes and connectors and contains cubes, bricks, logs, and cylinders; all of which enhance children’s self-expression and invite new
forms of experimentation. www.tcmupstate.org
