Leaving the nest: Are Southeast Asians moving out of their family homes?

Dreams of moving out from family homes are widespread, but how many Southeast Asians actually take that step? Our latest study delves into this question, aiming to uncover who moves out, what motivates them, and what holds others back. We also explore changes in personal habits, challenges faced, societal trends, and the perceived affordability of moving out in Southeast Asia. The insights gleaned from this dataset empower property agents and retail organisations to better understand and cater to their target audience's needs and aspirations.
