What’s Trending in the Housing Market: 16 House Plans to Make Your House Hip

By Alan Mascord Design Associates Inc, Special for  USDR

Alan Mascord Design Associates Inc., a national provider of house plans and custom home design services,  have announced the addition of sixteen new designs to their existing collection of more than 800 stock house plans.  Trending features such as contemporary styling, generational design, and separate AirBnB apartments help builders around the nation satisfy the needs of today’s discerning home  buyers.

“Today’s home buyers want more than a home that works for them – they want a home that adds to their income,” says Eric Schnell, Director of Design.  Mascord have found that many of their young home buyers are choosing to host AirBnB travelers to supplement their income and help them with the costs of home ownership.  Guest suites, especially those with separate entrances and even detached units, are increasing in  popularity.

Beyond accommodating guest travelers, the future need to care for aging parents, returning college students – or even themselves – is leading many new home builders to incorporate Generational Design principles into their homes too. Single level homes with wider hallways and open layouts have been popular universal design principles for aging in place – and with the addition of extended guest suites, multiple flexible spaces and some key room relationships – Generational homes really accommodate those looking to build a single home that will last a  lifetime.
