Why do normies do this?

the vast majority of graduates will move out of their parents house immediately and save a few thousand in their first year instead of living with their parents one more year, saving a years worth of salary, and investing it

Because living with your parents suck and they generally force you to pay rent and buy your own food?

Saving a years worth of salary
So you don't have any expenses? Your parents are okay with paying for an adult who is fully capable of earning his own money?

instead of living with their parents one more year

Why stop there? Why not just stay with your parents until your 40's and invest everything?

Yes, because my parents understand I'm trying to get well off financially to start a family a few years down the road. Literally nothing wrong with this.

Historically it was financially feasible to leave home when young, get a loan, buy a house etc.

In the current environment that is not possible for most people. However l oi ts of parents want their kids to move out and lots of kids want to leave home - the majority of people think of their comforts now rather than the future, so they don't realise that staying at home a few years and saving up could make a huge long term difference to their financial position

@Lunatick
Any parent that charges their kids unreasonable rent is a bit of a cunt, this is an undeniable truth. Any parent should also be glad to have their kids at home as long as possible - they will come to regret it otherwise when they are 70 and shitting themselves and no one comes to visit.

And I know you are being ironic about staying til 40 but there's realistically nothing wrong with staying as a family unit and working towards combined household wealtn rather than leaving and failing on your own. Staying til 40 is extreme but just because society has dictated we should be out by 18 doesn't make it the wisest decision, the family unit as a whole would be better if you stayed and worked together.

And that's all if your parents are sweethearts and don't charge rent. You'd need 140k at least to have 1 million in 10 years, and that's if you're investing well. Then again, the market hasn't gone 10 years without crashing in a while.

Methshot

It's worth it to not have to hear them argue with each other and always have to be on my best behavior because Id be an adult living with my 60 something parents. I'm in my early 20's, I want to be able to fuck around, doing whatever I want in MY home, coming and going at all hours, and basically not having to argue with them and deal with their bullshit and then having to deal with my bullshit. I don't even dislike my parents or have any big problems with them, but if I'm around them for long periods of time we all start to get on each others nerves and butt heads over nothing. My relationship with my parents has been so much better since I moved out, I'll go over and visit about once a week and have dinner and walk their dog, and it's perfect. I still have a relationship with them but I have my own house and my own life where I can do things my way, not theirs.

tfw mom is a mild hoarder and your dad has been too big of a pussy to just sort through all her shit and throw out all the junk that's literally useless old files, paperwork, and way too many of my old crappy plastic baby toys with dust and bug shit and spiderwebs all over them.

I always felt anxiety living there, there was always so many random boxes of CRAP lined up against walls in the hall, living room, dining room, the bedrooms, and the garage. It wasn't Chris-Chan bad and it was never gross or unsanitary, just boxes with paperwork or random plastic crap.

I am 19 and afraid to move out once I graduate because my mom will be very lonely without me, and my family is prone to depression. Her parents died within the last 5 years. She is divorced and has no close friends or any family in town. She will be totally alone, wageslaving until she dies once I move out. Even once I start sending her back money, I don't know what to do with her.

Oh wait because the vast majority of parent's are going to kick you the fuck out when you turn 18, or when you're done with college if you're lucky. Just because your parents love you doesn't mean they want to take care of your dumb ass forever. They are people too ya know.

Because at 18 I wouldn't have been smart or educated enough to invest the money properly and, in any event, like many Americans, I went away to college where living at home wasn't feasible.

Given that I kinda bring a rotating crew of girls back to my place I can't imagine the awkwardness of living with parents.

There's a difference between finding it awkward to bring girls back to your parent's house, and moving out for that sole reason.
If the latter reason is outpacing the former, that's just fucking sad.

I will move out soon though because I want to bring my gf over sometimes and I am tired of them asking for money, Plus they are going to ask $400 for rent next month. I give it one month and I am out.

I make more money then both my parents, its pretty sad...

Some people get sick of living with their parents and family (some people live with siblings and grandparents).

After living with them for years and knowing how they operate, if the lifestyle you want (or would rather have instead) is within your means then it makes sense.

I agree it's more logical to save money and invest rather than pay rent at that young age. But some people want to move out with their GFs or some some shit man.

I would either stay with parents or split rent with some really tight mates on a nice house.
