A recent article published by Forbes outlines millennial moving habits, asking "why do millennials move?" As Maureen Henderson writes, while "the stereotype may have them shacking up Chez Mom and Dad . . . 59% of 18- to 35-year-olds currently live in a locale other than their hometown and almost 80% have moved at some point in their lives, not counting moves made to attend college."
As Henderson continues, "the reasons that compel millennials to pull up stakes are a fascinating grab bag. 51% have changed locations for a job, while 48% say they've moved for lifestyle reasons or for a new experience. Less predictably, almost a third have moved to get away from family and friends, perhaps trying to loosen the apron strings with their helicopter boomer parents" and "a romantically-minded 46% report that they moved for love."
