Boomerang sons more preva­lent

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

BOOMERANG kids are most likely to be sons rather than daugh­ters, ac­cord­ing to a new sur­vey by home val­u­a­tion site, Prop­er­tyPriceAd­vice.co.uk.

Rachel Bexon, of Prop­erty Price Ad­vice, says: “This seems to show that young fe­males nowa­days seem to be much more proac­tive when it comes to get­ting their foot on the prop­erty lad­der. It seems that boys no longer want to live the Joey-and-Chan­dler bach­e­lor life­style. In­stead, they’re hap­pier stay­ing at home with mum and dad.”

The num­ber of young peo­ple liv­ing with their par­ents un­til well into their 20s has in­creased to record lev­els over the past few years thanks to un­em­ploy­ment rates and dif­fi­culty in get­ting a mort­gage.
