While many parents secretly dislike the idea of becoming empty nesters, over the past several years or so, many have found that the “birds” who left home in the past are moving back in with Mom and Dad again.
Statistically, those who are in the Millennial generation (individuals who were born between the early 1980s and the early 2000s) are much closer to their parents – especially as compared to prior generations. So, this can be a good start when considering living together again.
But there is still the issue of having ample physical space for everyone. In some instances, making space for your new roommate can be as easy as opening up his or her former bedroom door. Depending on how long it has been since your adult child moved out, it is possible that you still have furniture and other items that are ready and waiting to be put in use again.
In other cases, though, it could require a bit more work – especially if you have downsized since all of your birds flew away. Here, making the room that is needed could require some major renovations, or even inspire the thought of moving to a larger residence again.
If you are considering the purchase of a new homestead to fit your changing needs, give us a call. There are many homes available on the market today that include ample space for privacy – or even a separate living quarters altogether that is located on the property.
In addition, we can work with you on coming up with the appropriate list price for your current residence, and finding a buyer as quickly as possible so that you can move forward in your newly-filled nest again.
