The city of Depok is a suburb of the metropolitan Jakarta, which from the beginning was designated as a dormitory city for the people of Jakarta. This caused many residents including young families to move as commuters. The study uses mixed methods with samples taken accidental at the location of the commuter station and residential environment by collecting data in questionnaires and interviews. Who wants a home location that is close to public transportation, child-friendly, and very much depends on the price of the house. The difference between the life cycle that is the desire for environment preferences, safety and having a high desire to move from their current place of residence to the place of residence they want to fulfill the family life cycle. This can be input for the government, especially the Government of Depok City and developers in planning housing considering the family life cycle in order to improve the quality of life.
