Adult son eating breakfast at his parent's house, with parents looking frustrated in the backgroundFor the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18-34 are more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they are to be living with a spouse or partner in their own house or apartment, reports Pew Social Trends. Are you one these folks? Check out these 8 (somewhat hilarious) signs it may be time to move out of your parent’s place and into an abode of your own. It’s easier and more affordable than you ever imagined!

Millennial Renter The Millennial generation – those who are currently 18 to 34 years old – are choosing to rent apartments rather than buy homes. In fact, a new report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University found that people aged 25 to 34 years old are putting off buying homes for several reasons, including college debt. But financial concerns are only a small factor in many Millennials’ decision to rent apartments. Many simply prefer the lifestyle that renting an apartment affords them over home ownership.

Group of Generation Z Teens

The next generation of apartment residents is an entrepreneurial, technologically-adept and financially-independent group. They may be too young to venture out on their own yet, but today’s children will be moving out on their own sooner than you might expect and they are excited to soon be living the lifestyle of modern apartment living.

This demographic group, dubbed Generation Z (born between 1994 and 2000), is even more independent than Generation Y and Millennials, with many more of these teens expressing a desire to start their own businesses and hire employees (even though they are still in school). These independent thinkers are likely to choose apartments, in order to have financial stability and live the independent lifestyle they enjoy.
