Most people, when talking about the housing market, only think about single-family housing. They know that the single-family housing market is better than previous years, but do not consider the multi-family housing market. The NAHB noticed that the multi-family market has been in high demand in recent years and continues to be in high demand, just like the single-family housing market. Multi-Family homes are buildings, like apartment complexes, or homes designed to handle more than one family. The American public is still in great need for affordability and design, so the need for multi-family housing has risen. Different factors play a major role in the high demand for multi-family housing. Millennials are wanting independence , but need affordability. On the other hand, Baby Boomers want to maintain their independence, and need housing that is low maintenance, so a feasible option for both parties is to be apart of a multi-family community. Even regular houses can serve as multi-family units because, they have the amenities that are more than capable to support more than one family.
