8 Reasons People Move

There are many reasons why people move from their homes. Studies have shown that people usually move every 5 to 7 years, depending on various factors. For some, this may seem like a lot, but the truth is there are many reasons why people move to a new location. Here are eight reasons why someone might choose to relocate.

1. Changing jobs.

Over time, people may find that they have different opportunities in a different location for employment. They may decide to relocate to a new area for this better paying job opportunity, or they may be transferred from their current job.

2. Growing family.

As the family grows, the house that was first purchased or rented may no longer be big enough. The home may become cramped and uncomfortable. This leads many people to choose to move into a bigger home.

3. Education.

When a person has children, they naturally begin looking at all schools in the area. They may not find a school in the neighborhood that fits their child’s needs, so they will choose to relocate to an area that has better options.

4. Regret over buying a home.

For some homebuyers, the initial thought is they had purchased their perfect home. Only to have buyer’s remorse later on. After some time has passed, they might not like certain things about the home, or they may dislike certain factors about the neighborhood or the surrounding areas. This may lead someone to decide to find a new home.

5. Change in relationships.

Relationship changes are a big factor when it comes to relocating. Newly engaged or married couples will be moving in with one another to start their new life. On the flip side, when a breakup or divorce occurs, this will cause one or the other to have to move.

6. Uncomfortable in the neighborhood.

A person may purchase a home in a beautiful neighborhood. Over time, things may start to change and it might not be for the better. New homes could go up, causing crowding. Crime could increase, or new rules from a homeowners association could be put in place that the person is not comfortable with or that may be too restricting. This may cause a person to want to move to a new location.

7. Wanting to be closer to family.

People may move away from their family when they are younger, but at some point, they might want to move back. After having children, families may choose to move closer to each other in order to be able to have more time with cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles. There are also cases where people have had to move closer to family in order to help take care of their parents or other extended family due to health issues.

8. Medical concerns.

If a person develops a health condition, they may have to move closer their doctor or hospital to avoid the expense and time restraints of long periods of travel.
