As a mother to two devious boys, quickly growing into little men, I have to say that I am not only surprised but somewhat satisfied with the findings of this recent study: Americans like to live near mom. There’s comfort in knowing that maybe my boys won’t go running for the hills the first chance they get. With more millennials in position to buy, it seems that the matriarch of the family may have more of an influence in their decision than we all thought. According to the study, the average American lives only 18 miles from his/her mother. Even more, only 20% of Americans live more than a couple of hours from their parents. Take a look at the details and explanations of the study here – do you fall into the majority? I call this one a big win for mom!
