In 2018 some one in four 25 to 34-year-olds are living with their parents in their family home.
Most don’t want to be there … and most parents don’t want them to be there either.
The property market is in crisis. Rents have spiraled in recent years and available homes are few.
Queues for the properties that are for rent are long, it’s a hyper competitive world out there. Landlords can afford to pick and choose the tenants they want.
And if you want to buy, well house prices continue to rise and home ownership is but a distant dream for many.
All of this means its tough being a young adult in Ireland today.
But for adult children living with their parents there are always options, always choices to be made.
And with that in mind, RTE are launching the new series of RTE2 Series This Crowded House presented by Brendan Courtney.
A spokesperson said: “Production has just begun so we are inviting applicants from all around the country to take part in the show and would love you to share this with your Laois readership online in order to get the word out that we are looking for people from the county to apply.
“We had very few applicants from Laois last series so we’d love to change that.
“We know after the last census that almost 460K adults in Ireland are living at home with their parents.
“This show sees Brendan alongside financial expert Eoin McGee help them get on the right track to move out.
“We’re looking for participants to get in touch whether they are the adult children at home, or parents of children whose time it is to move out.”
Contributors will be given expert advice from highly regarded financial planner Eoin McGee and a team of researchers and advisors will help explore all of the available housing options.
