IMG_16383_7_largeIn the past, the family home housed generations of the same family all together and as the Office for National Statistics highlight, it could be something we are returning to, as the last decade saw an 26% increase in 20 to 34 year olds living at home with their parents.  With multi generation living on the increase, finding the right home to benefit this dynamic is paramount.   

Economic pressures have been the key driving factor for this change; it makes perfect sense after all, whilst grandparents are looking to downsize, their children are looking to upsize to gain more space for their growing family.  By joining together your finances, you are taking an instant stepping stone up the property ladder, being able to afford a larger property with more space in possibly a more desirable location. 

There are endless additional benefits of living under one roof, which ultimately allow you to be there for each other as a family unit.  It is the peace of mind that elder parents are being looked after in times of need and that the children are being cared for by people who love them, which make this setup work and become unique to your situation.  Additionally, the split cost of living ensures everyone has greater disposable income and as such, are able to lead a comfortable lifestyle without additional financial stresses on their mind.  As a result, you now have a happy home, which could quite comfortably lead you through to the foreseeable future.

We currently have a few properties which could help you ascertain such a balance.  Providing a spacious and versatile living area, these homes either have an annexe or offer a flexible living space which could easily be adjusted to suit.
