Multigenerational living is not a new concept, but with our changing demographics they are trending upwards.  They provide a great financial solution as well as emotional.

 

NAR reported in march 2014 that 14% of all home buyers purchased a multigenerational home.

 

Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists about where prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.

 

Their latest home price expectations released based upon surveys show home values will appreciate 4.5% in 2014, with the experts projecting a cumulation appreciation of 11% by 2018.

 

As baby boomers also known as the Sandwhich Generation age they find themselves with children still at home as well as having to care for the aging parents.

 

The recession has triggered a wave of kids returning back home because they can not financially support themselves.

 

Immigration is contributing to this trend with the surge of Asian and Latin Americans who are much more inclined to live in multigenerational households.

 

Builders have been designing floor plans specifically geared to include open, self contained, apartment-like living areas with a bedroom, a full bath, a kitchenette, a separate entrance and sometimes a laundry room and garage to meet this increasing demand.

 

Although the western states, especially California, are ahead of the curve, such designs are gradually making their way east. 

 

It offers a great opportunity for people to live independently but together. Offers a 

 financial solution and  also a lifestyle solution.  It presents a new way of being closer and helping out each other without imposing  and setting boundaries of space. Relationships are much better than they ever could have imagined.

Houses that are conducive to multi-generational living will become more popular. "Aging in place" support systems means more families will be looking for homes that will be conducive to accommodate aging parents.
