All in the Family: Multi-Generational Home Buying

Multi-generational home buying is a way for families to care for one another, support one another, and often buy a home that may have been previously out of reach. Multi-generational buying may be a home where families live in the same home with elderly parents, children who have boomeranged back home, or other extended family members. While this is not a new concept of living, it is one which has gained recent popularity.

This past year, NAR collected data in the Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, which shows that multi-generational buying is back near an all-time high at 14%. This is up from 11% in the 2021 report. In 2020, the report found a low before the COVID-19 pandemic of 11%, followed by an immediate gain to 15% of all buyers. READ MORE

Financial planning can help families set boundaries, reduce emotional strain and live together successfully. READ MORE
