Unique Homes For Sale In Baltimore


A few months ago there was a  Post by Buzz Mackintosh..'Multi-generational house plans are extremely popular in today's real estate market and the main reason is the rapid rate of retiring baby boomers." 

Grandparents move in to look after their grandchildren, older relative move in to be cared for to eliminate the expense of retirement communities or nursing homes or a young adult child returns home after college.


In a recent post about co-ownership  

I spoke about sharing a home with friends who may travel together but Buzz has brought the extended family into focus. He goes on to say. that  50 million are living this way.


These same homes that are good for co-ownership can also be for Multi-generations. Take a look at a few of my listings.
