Families are teaming up to purchase multigenerational homes in South Florida
WESTLAKE, FL, USA, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — One in five Americans are now living in multigenerational homes where two or more adult generations (and often children, too) share a living space.
While not a new concept, the 2020 global pandemic has accelerated interest in multigenerational living well into 2021, and Label & Co.’s Sky Cove and Sky Cove South – of Westlake, new gated communities in Westlake, Florida, offer floor plans for families of all sizes.
The pandemic created many barriers for families spread across multiple households. Many family members went without in-person contact with family members for months at a time due to lockdowns and visiting restrictions. Holiday gatherings and trips to visit relatives were postponed or canceled. In addition, daycare closures created huge challenges for working parents with young children. Economic slowdowns and workplace austerity measures decreased opportunities for recent college graduates entering the workforce, forcing many to move back home or delay their plans to relocate.
These and other hardships are minimized or eliminated by multigenerational living.
Affordable and practical
For many families, multigenerational homes can be affordable and practical. Multigenerational living combines the security of shared expenses and the convenience of built-in quality time with relatives. In fact, research has shown a 30 percent increase in multigenerational living since 2007.
According to a recent article by Michele Lerner in the Washington Post, the National Association of Realtors reported that homes purchased by multigenerational households in the United States rose to 15 percent between April and June 2020. This is the highest percentage of multigenerational home ownership since the association began tracking the statistic in 2012.
Pandemic disruptions accelerated plans for adults to move aging parents into their homes for caregiving or to help with childcare, according to the article. More and more, families are choosing to purchase a home that fits their current way of life, and multigenerational living is well suited to a post-pandemic lifestyle.
Priorities have shifted
A home designed with space to accommodate an aging parent, an adult child experiencing a life transition, or a live-in caregiver for young children, has become a top priority for many buyers.
As multigenerational homes in South Florida become increasingly more popular, homebuilders are responding. Multigenerational homes often feature enlarged community spaces such as oversized kitchens and open living spaces where families can conveniently and comfortably gather.
