Firstly, free caretakers. :) They can keep the house clean and you might even come back to a freshly prepared home-made dinner when you get back from work.
Secondly, free babysitter. Your parents would love to play with their grandchild. Your kid will grow up learning from your parents who have done a relatively good job on you yourself, and learn to love their grandparents.
Thirdly save rent. There's little point in buying a huge house just to leave it empty most parts of the day. It also makes it more liveable when you get back, it feels homely. Makes your dollar more worth it.
Fourthly repay your parents. Now this is a slightly unique situation but I got my education loan from my parents. I could possibly have them sell their old house and move in with me, and I let them stay for free, rent, utilities and living expenses are all covered by me. That way I can repay them for the education fees.
What do you think? Sounds good?

I wouldn´t ask my parents to come and live with me while married. The reason: your new family must have their own space, and so your parents
1.- Your parents are going to live with you for: Cleaning the house? They are supposed to have their time for resting, travel to places they couldn't go while working for paying college, do hobbies they didn't have time to do, etc.
2.- Our parents raised their own children, now that they are adults, their job is done. One thing is to visit their grandchildren and hang out with them, but changing diapers, teaching a kid how to write and read, is another story. If we want to have kids, we have to take the full responsability of it.
3.- It's true that having your family around is amazing, however, when you are married there's stuff that must be kept to your wife and you. Our parents wouldn't want to hear or know about others fights or argues with your wife while watching tv, having dinner, etc.
If you really want to give them a good life why don't you better plan trips for them? or pay for a membership in a nice club or ask them what would they want to do during their retirement?1
