Adult children living at home too long may be less likely to own their own homes — ever

A warning to parents with adult kids still living at home: If your kids are older than 25, you might want to start pushing them out the door.

A new survey indicates the percentage of people who purchase their own homes while in their 30s increases with age of departure from the parental home until about age 25 – then it drops. After age 28, their chances of becoming homeowners are no better than children who fly the coop at 16.
