living at home after college

With the economy the way that it is and affordable housing few and far between, it’s common for kids (sorry, young adults) to move back home with their parents for a while after college. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a job—and a well-paying one at that—lined up, right out of school. And many individuals simply cannot afford off-campus housing once they’ve graduated in the city where they attended school. There’s also the reality that perhaps your child doesn’t want to live, for the foreseeable future, in the place where she attended school. So it makes sense that she’d take a beat, think things over, and come up with a game plan at home rather than putting a deposit on an apartment in a city she’s unsure about. All of that being said, once a child returns to the nest, it can be very, very hard to get her to leave again. So, should you let your post-grad kid live at home? Here are things to consider.

Why is she moving in?

Is she simply moving in for the practical reasons mentioned above? If so then, it’s really quite smart and financially responsible that she comes home before hemorrhaging money on an apartment.
