7 Reasons To Buy A Home With An In-Law Suite
Save Money - When it comes to buying two homes versus buying just one, money savings is almost guaranteed. This is the top reason that my past customers have chosen to purchase a home with an in-law suite, as they felt the need to house an extended family member and reasoned it would make financial sense to have them on the same property.
Heath Issues - The health of an extended family member is another big reason to consider a home with an in-law suite. While the financial savings versus two locations are obvious, the fact is a home with an in-law suite would allow for the family to spend less time traveling to take care of the ill extended family member. Saving time and money are usually appreciated. Additionally, if somebody in your immediate family has health issues, owning a home with an in-law suite could be perfect for a full or part-time healthcare provider to stay the nights or weeks as required.
Childcare - Another popular reason is that the family has two working parents, and an in-law suite would allow for an extended family member to have their own space while also being available to help with the babysitting.
Guests - An in-law suite makes for a great guest room if you regularly entertain out of town guests. The suite gives them more than just a room in the house, yet allows them to stay with you when they visit.
Returning Children - If you are at an age where your children are "out of the house" yet often return for extended periods of time, then an in-law suite would allow you to provide for them a place to say without making them feel like small children again.
Home Office - It seems like the number of people who work from home is growing every day, and if that is the case for you, having a home office in an in-law suite would not only provide the space you need to do your work but might also allow for you to maintain office hours and host visitors. When compared to leasing office space with meeting facilities, this could be a significant financial advantage for work-from-home individuals.
Rental Revenue - The rise of short-term rental apps over the past five years (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.) has created a relatively easy process for somebody to become a landlord. If you have a fully-equipped mother-in-law suite, you could likely receive a premium in your rental rate that would significantly reduce your effective mortgage payment. Can you imagine living in a $500K home and yet pay a mortgage as one would normally have on a $200K home? It's possible if you are generating good rental income, so it's another reason to consider buying a home with an in-law suite.
