A Mother-in-Law Suite is another way to describe Guest Quarters in a home. It can be as simple as a bedroom and private bath that has a door giving the suite privacy from the rest of the home. Or it could be more elaborate like a small guest house with a kitchenette on the property.

All my best,
Also known as a Casita, Guest House. Can be a separate entrance off of the main house or a separate building on the property.
Adds value and keeps some privacy for the homeowner when "Mom" or friends visit. Also not a bad way to earn some extra cash to pay for the mortgage on a temporary or regular rental.

Think long and hard before adding a mother-in-law to your family tree... ohh.. wait...
I think you might have meant an "in-law-suite"... usually at least a bedroom in the house, sometimes with a sitting room and a nearby bath that could be used to house your in-laws... (should you be insane enough to consider that)...
That's a great question.
I believe you are asking about a home that contains an "in-law", "teenager" or "something or other" suite, and not that someone is actually selling their mother in law!
(Don't laugh, I have seen some pretty strange things, but that would certainly take the cake.)
Anyway back to the "suite".
What the listing agent is probably trying to convey, although not very well, is that the home for sale contains an area of the house, that is possibly seperate or in some way "apart" from the normal living space in the home.
In other words, this "suite" could be in the basement, could be in the attic, or maybe it is outside of the house a la where Tom Selleck lived in Magnum P.I.
It is a part of the house that someone can go to get away from it all, or more likely, a place in the house, where someone with less than desirable social skills, is sent to contemplate.
Hopefully that helps, and good luck,

The term "mother-in-law" in a listing means that there is a space in the property that includes a bedroom, bath, and kitchen or kitchenette of some type. Usually, it can be found in a lower-level area or apartment above a garage.
Hope that helps define it.
