Why Are You Moving?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - Topsfield, MA 92593-B

There are many reasons people pick up and move. Some move for jobs, others for family closeness. Others move because they're in the military and some just want a fresh start. My Uncle & his wife moved to a warmer climate for medical reasons. People in Massachusetts have moved to New Hampshire to escape MA taxes. All I now is there is a lot of movement. The folks at KCM have put together an INFOGRAPHIC highlights some of the reasons people move.

Why Americans Consider Moving to Another State? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Keeping Current Matters

Some Highlights:

  • In a recent Harris Poll, Americans listed "change in climate/weather" as their top reason for wanting to relocate.
  • 41% would move for a “better job opportunity.”
  • Being closer to loved ones filled out 3 of the top 6 reasons why Americans move.

Doug,

Those figures are pretty close to the reasons my recent clients have relocated. Jobs, family and weather are a little higher in my experience. Of course being in the Northeast weather is a big one.

Good Morning Dana Basiliere 

We New Englanders complain about the weather but we love New England. Many years ago we nearly moved to the Williston area. I had been looking at a job in Burlington

Good Morning Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® 

KCM does a great job on graphics. How is the weather in WI? We are still on the cooler side here in New England.

Being highly active is home sales in the Sarasota/Manatee/Charlotte County Areas of Florida for decades, I can tell you that I am thankful for the winter weather in the north that drives most of our clients to us. Great infographic.

Hi Sheila Anderson 

For certain, people are most unpredictable. When I was working in Alaska for a short spell there were people I met that were thinking they were hiding out.
