I'm currently 18 and still live with my parents, still in Italy it's harder to move out than most other developed countries: the employment rate among young people is extremely low so very few can afford to move out paying a monthly rent, still, if I can, I'd love to move out when I'm 25, sooner if possible

23 and still live at home, planning on moving out before the end of this year.



About 19, but moved back home when split up, for a few months then permanently left home at 23.



Where are you hoping to buy then? Some parts UK are crazy expensive, i had to go further up north than i wanted.

I still live with my parents at home for the most part, but I'm currently saving up to put a deposit down on a house with my girlfriend, which is hopefully happening later this year after the holiday we have planned, my first time abroad and I'm going to Florida, really excited for it, then when we get back, house hunting gets super serious, hoping to be moved in before the end of the year... it's a bit scary thinking about it, but I'm also excited too.

nothing quite as satisfying as having a place you can own and call home :) be it rented or to buy it, it's lovely to have a safespace that belongs to you.

 

It can be scary, but it's a great part of life, leaving the nest is an important part in all animal life.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Honestly, I'm not going any further north than Yorkshire lol, I mean, I already live here anyway, and I'll be looking locally so I'm close to my family anyway lol. The good thing is that there's some pretty decent houses for the price round here, I've seen house prices down south and holy shit they're expensive!

Yeah, if I really wanted, I could have started renting years ago, but y'know, renting is actually more expensive than a mortgage if you plan on living somewhere long term, and I'd rather own the home I live in too... between the two of us we're doing pretty well with saving and thanks to her having a great, high paying job, we can borrow quite a lot of money too, lol. 



16. My mom died and I never knew my father so there really wasn't any other choice, lol. Lived on the streets for about a year before I got my shit together. Then I had to go to school and work at afternoons to earn money for the hotel. I couldn't rent a flat, because you need the approval of your parents for that if you're under the age of 18 here in germany. Tough luck when you don't have any parents anymore. But whatever, it all worked out in the end and while those times weren't the happiest in my life, I learned some valuable lessons for life. For example to never take anything for granted.

You're an inspiration. Congrats and thanks for sharing.

I learned these past few years to not take anything for granted too (thanks to medical conditions and stuff that happened). It's always good to celebrate what you have and enjoy it while you can. Cheers!
