Why Many College Graduates Are Moving Back Home

Last updated 5 years ago

College graduation usually signifies the start of a new life in a new place. Armed with a degree and ready to enter the workforce, most graduates do not expect to end up back at their parents’ houses. However, many grads find themselves moving back into their childhood homes. Keep reading to find out why:

Saving Money
Unfortunately, starting salaries do not often offer much leeway to become financially independent. One of the leading reasons that college graduates move back home is to save money before moving out on their own. Whether or not they have jobs, living at home gives them the opportunity to put away money after college.

Regrouping after School
With full class loads that require much effort, many graduates find themselves mentally and physically exhausted when school ends. Instead of trying to immediately push through to the next phase, graduates choose to take time off and regroup. Moving back home is often the perfect remedy for the post-college slump that hinders an immediate jump into the corporate world.

Easing the Transition
The end of school is one of the largest transitions that most people face in their lives. With all of the uncertainty of entering the working world, many graduates feel the need to return to something familiar before they feel comfortable moving on. Taking the time to move back home for a bit often makes the next step seem less intimidating.
