Sara Clemence, Forbes

…Jeff Groper, president of Bretton Realty in Brookline, Mass., near Boston University, says his office has seen a lot more families buying instead of renting apartments for their children, since interest rates have been so low.

“The kids are coming in with their parents and saying we want to spend $1,000 per kid to rent,” he says. If the parents are able to make the upfront commitment, he suggests they buy a two-bedroom apartment and bring in a roommate.

Recently, a father and his son, a freshman at Boston University, came into the office because the child wasn’t happy with his dorm, which cost about $800 per month, Groper says. The family spent $240,000 on a one-bedroom that could be split into a two-bedroom. With a roommate, the parents will end up paying less each month on housing costs.
