Yes, and I am one of them.  I love that people are making arrangements sooner rather than later, for their aging parents.  I'm not so thrilled with the boomerang children though!

I have many clients who use the set up for an au pair first, until their parents have the need to move in.

YES, an incredible increase in both parents looking for homes with their child and children looking for homes for room for their parents. Inlaws are real big right now.

I think, with the rising cost of senior care, we will see more multi-generational families living together.  The last home I purchased was for the specific purpose of having care-giver quarters because I needed help taking care of my ill husband.  It worked perfectly, and I hope will be an attractive selling point.

Some of the ethnic groups tend more towards multigenerational housing than others.

Many seniors and some young families need help and living together can reduce the costs.

Yes, I've been seeing this for a while now.  I anticipate that this trend will continue until there's a serious improvement of the economy.

Not really, but more and more builders are building for it and buyers are taking it into consideration for future needs.

Good morning Heidi. I did a mortgage earlier this year for three generations, buying a three family, each was going to take a floor. It ended up costing each family about $500 per month to live there.

Houses that are conducive to multi-generational living will become more popular. "Aging in place" support systems means more families will be looking for homes that will be conducive to accommodate aging parents.

Yes.  Instead of downsizing, many parents have to get a bigger home as their kids are moving back in.
