As I was pulling away from my home this morning heading to work I saw my neighbor helping his children load up pull behind backpack style bags, backpacks and suitcases. Two young girls who I've watched grow throughout the years and are now starting to be in their teens. My point is their Dad was there helping load up everything he hasn't been living with the family for about 7 years due to divorce. It just made me think about these young girls and how children have adapted to going back and forth from parent to parent. Packing clothes, homework and other things they will need while they are with that parent.
So do you know where I'm going with this? Since that generation is so used to packing up for a visit, moving from one parent to the other. Will these kids be the type of home buyers that we are accustomed to now? Or will they be so used to moving around all the time it will be hard for them to stay put in one place or commit to buying a property knowing they will want to move shortly. OR, will they be so tired of moving around all the time they will want to stay put? I'm a child of divorce and have never liked the idea of moving. My reasons for not wanting to move around much has lots of variables. I'm just curious to see what the future brings for that generation. Especially since their parents have also experienced this crazy housing market that they are dealing with now. Time will tell I guess.
