Percent of adults living with roommates higher than ever before


As rents across the country rise, many working adults are doubling up with roommates or parents in order to cut costs and share living expenses:

– Across the country, 30 percent of adults live with either a roommate or parent, up eight percentage points since 2000.

– Los Angeles, Riverside, Calif. and Miami have the greatest share of adults living with a roommate or parent. These metros also have some of the nation’s most expensive rents.

– Americans making the national median income should expect to spend about 30 percent of their monthly income on a rental payment, but in Los Angeles, renters spend almost half.

Nationally, nearly one in three adults live with a roommate or parent, the greatest share ever reported, according to a new Zillow® analysis. As rental affordability deteriorates, more U.S. adults may be choosing double up in order to cut costs.
