Multi-generational living is one of the fastest-growing trends in real estate today, and leading San Antonio community Mission del Lago is catering to families looking to live under one roof with several brand-new homes on the Southside.
CNBC recently wrote about the increasing number of homebuyers looking to include extended family, quoting real estate expert John Burns of John Burns Real Estate Consulting firm. He noted that, “Older homes were built for young families, and we have 21 million households now living multigenerationally.” Burns Consulting conducted a survey of 20,000 home shoppers and found that “44 percent said they would like to accommodate their elderly parents in their next home. Forty-two percent said they plan to accommodate their adult children.”
Many of the homes at Mission del Lago are perfect for multiple generations living together in the same home.
The Southbend floorplan from Lennar Homes at Mission del Lago offers 1,527 square feet of living space with a gracious master suite at the rear of the home for privacy, and two additional bedrooms with a shared bath near the front of the home.

Jobs: San Antonio ranked highly on Forbes’ list of Best Places for Business and Careers, who said, “The San Antonio area has projected annual job growth of 2.7 percent, 26.7 percent college attainment and 1.5 percent high-tech employment.” The Southside’s job market is booming, with the Toyota Plant, new Southside businesses, and continuing growth at Brooks City Base.
