Multigenerational Homes: Keeping Families Together but, Comfortably Apart

Over 57 million Americans are currently living in a type of multigenerational configuration. 

Homes are consolidating as more children are living with their parents, and aging parents are moving in with their adult children. In order to keep up with this shifting demand, the homebuilding industry is responding rapidly by designing homes specifically created for next generation homes.

Most of these unique homes include private amenities like a separate entranceway, bedroom, living space, bathroom and kitchenette. But, they also include central space where there is connectivity inside the house, designed for all members of the family to enjoy.

The multigenerational home trend, often referred to as homes with a mother-in-law suite or in-law apartment, is driven by baby boomers living longer and late blooming millennials. Multigenerational homes are expected to dominate the next era of housing and are the new best way to reconnect families. 

If you are considering consolidating due to rising rent rates and/or changing family dynamics, you should consider upgrading in quality time and space for all members of your family with a multigenerational home. Chattanooga Property Shop has six homes available for sale that can serve the needs of multigenerational families that want to live together but, comfortably apart.
