Multigenerational Home

Our real estate agents are hard at work, helping clients find the perfect Iowa City homes for sale. Over the last few years, more and more people have approached our team looking for homes where three or more generations of the family can live together.

Multigenerational living can be a huge benefit to all family members – under the right circumstances.

Pooling resources means you deal with unexpected financial challenges. Sharing instead of buying duplicate items can save money. And the value of family closeness is incalculable.

But it doesn't work for everyone.

How can you be sure multigenerational living is right for you?

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Can You Find Sensible Compromises on Location?
    Location is an essential piece when choosing a home, but even more vital when everyone has different needs. Job opportunities are crucial, but so are educational options for those with kids and healthcare options for elders. Ideally, no one in the family should commute 100 miles to needed destinations.
  2. Can You Agree on Home Financing Strategies?
    In general, things go smoothest when every working adult in a home contributes to what they can during the mortgage process and other bills. Lenders will take into account all income, which includes things like pensions and disability funds. Your family should agree to a budget before moving in together.
