Recently, I’ve noticed the “Boomerang Generation” appearing in more than a few headlines. These young adults (ages 25 to 34) are returning to their parents’ homes, or “boomeranging,” as they attempt to navigate the challenging property market.

One of the main culprits behind this trend is high mortgage rates. As of October 2023, rates for 30-year fixed-rate loans have soared to nearly 8 percent on average, making the path toward homeownership more challenging than in previous years.1 Furthermore, the rising cost of rent, skyrocketing property prices, and high inflation continue to discourage aspiring homeowners.

Amid all these obstacles, homebuyers are aware that they may need help. A recent survey revealed that more than half of the prospective homebuyers in the upcoming year have contemplated seeking their parents’ support and, in some cases, even moving back home to save money. While welcoming your children back home can be a loving gesture to help them achieve homeownership, it can also put a strain on your financial situation if not approached thoughtfully.2
