The last buyer I worked with to help find a multi-gen home I met at an Open House in Queen Creek. They were being relocated from South Carolina and were bringing their parents with them and wanted to live under one roof… the search began. After two months looking at eight different properties we found the ideal floor plan by Lennar Homes.
Multigenerational living continues to trend upward. As baby boomers retire, many are choosing to live with their adult children. A recent survey by Pew Research Center showed that 19% of US population is living in multigenerational homes. The survey showed 44 percent of respondents said they would like to accommodate their elderly parents in their next home, while 42 percent said they plan to accommodate their adult children. Many builders have responded to this trend and are now building muligenerational homes.
In Arizona, specifically the Phoenix Metro area it has become difficult to find affordable homes that meet this growing sector. Especially for families moving from other area’s of the country where housing cost are significantly lower. As the Valley of the Sun continues to build further out increasing it’s footprint it has created some affordable opportunities to meet our growing population.
There are several housing options that will accomodate this sector one being two story homes offering a bedroom with full bath downstairs. The other option is one and two story homes with a separate/private suite offering private living and bedroom/bath. Some properties even have separate entrances and garages.
