These are some of the key benefits of multigenerational households.

The Pew Research Center defines a multigenerational household as a home with two or more adult generations. They include homes with grandparents and grandchildren under the age of 25. If your needs are changing, maybe you should consider sharing a home with additional loved ones. Whether it’s due to health, financial circumstance, or simply because you’ve reached a new phase of life, you might be considering multigenerational living as well.

A recent report from Generations United surveyed individuals living in multigenerational households and asked them about the key benefits of this housing arrangement. 98% of them feel that living in a multigenerational home leads to a successful, functioning household.

Some of the top benefits include enhanced bonds with loved ones and opportunities for school or job training. However, more adults under one roof means you may need having more space. 

The top of the wish list for most homeowners with multiple generations is additional space for privacy.
