What makes millennials move?

Better housing, new jobs and newfound independence are the catalysts

In 2017, the household mobility rate dropped to an all-time low of 10.9 percent (34.9 million) since the U.S. Census Bureau began keeping track of it 50 years ago. A recent Trulia report reveals this trend follows all generations — even millennials, the free-wheeling group of 18- to 35-year-olds, are moving at a much lower rate, with 38.4 percent of them still living with parents or relatives.
