Generations of families living under one roof are becoming more common as the cost of living and assisted living rises. But this is not at all a bad thing! Gaining the extra family time, the in-house sitters, and offering a safe and independent arrangement for loved ones are beginning to be at the top of homeowner’s necessity lists!
For the Kids
There’s nothing quite like growing up down the street from your grandparents. If you’re lucky enough, like I was, you might even spend a few years living with them! Having an in-home sitter is just one of the many benefits of having generations of family coinciding under one roof. Holidays and celebrations can get easier with not having to travel to visit parents as well. Less in childcare costs, an increase in family involvement and did someone say more date nights??
In 2012, MetLife conducted a market survey of assisted living and nursing home costs. They found that the national average monthly base rate in an assisted living community rose from $3,477 in 2011 to $3,550 in 2012. Homeowners are finding it much more financially beneficial to have their loved ones close by with an in-law suite attached to their main home. An in-law home will, most importantly, provide a greater peace of mind that your loved ones are in safe and affordable housing.
True in-law suites, like our two featured below, offer many amenities that allow for comfortable, private living. 100% independence is a key factor in providing a living area for family members. A full, upgraded kitchen, a first floor master bedroom with a full bathroom and extra living space will offer your loved ones with the convenience and independence of living on their own. The most important feature of an in-law is a separate entrance from the main home. A finished basement or loft apartment with shared kitchen and living area just does not cut it. Sharing a home but having separate living quarters will eliminate the feeling of invading one’s space, resulting in a very happy living arrangement.
