Trend: Families are Actively Seeking Multi-Generational Housing

Dated: April 13 2021

My grandmother moved in with us shortly after I was born. She helped my parents raise me and my siblings. And she comforted us when we were sick and shared life lessons I live by today. Living with us made economic sense for her. So yes, I'm a big believer in multi-generational housing.

Today we are seeing a "sandwich generation." Adult children are moving back home (or never leaving) while aging parents are moving in. Homeowners are getting caught in the middle.

If your house is feeling a little cramped, it might be time to move up into a larger multi-generational home that better suits your changing needs. We're seeing high demand from buyers right now, so your current home may sell more quickly than in the recent past.

Benefits of a multi-generational home can include a combined homebuying budget and shared caregiving duties, like with my grandmother. An increasing number of households are discovering the value.

Bottom Line

A larger home may be just what you need for your extended family's changing needs.
