We will be happy to give you a hand or handle everything – from furniture rearrangement to a complete move. Bet let’s get on with our list.

The first reason and the most obvious one is a new job. It is interesting to see how common and accepted it is in the US to move to a different place, just because there is a better job proposal there. And yes, people here actually look for different jobs all over the country. If you look at Europe, things there remain quite more local, although it isn’t uncommon to move once or twice to a bigger city, because of the nature of your field of expertise. But here you can actually go from the East coast to the West coast just because of a job opening. And sometimes this happens in the same company!

Another quite common reason is kids. Many parents would choose to live farther from their workplace, but in a nicer and safer neighborhood, rather than risk their kids growing up in a bad environment. Possibly better education can also be a reason, but we’ve decided that these to go together. After all, your children can grow up in a nice neighborhood, but you also want them to have good education for a better future.

Naturally, the next reason is usually upgrading to a bigger home. Even if a family is comfortable living in a smaller place when they are only 2 or 3 of them, when more children are born, it is inevitable to move to a bigger place. However, these moves are usually less time consuming and don’t take so much effort, because you are bound to look in the same neighborhood or one that is still close. Most of these moves are local, but are moves, nonetheless.

Then comes the downsizing. It is interesting how these reasons follow the progress of human life, but it does seem logical to think that way. When your kids have moved out, your house can suddenly feel extremely empty. Many people then choose to move to a smaller place, maybe in an even better neighborhood. This isn’t usually because of costs, but because of feeling too lonely in your own home.

The fifth and final reason is the most interesting – some people just want a change. They want to try something new, to see a place they’ve never seen before, to challenge themselves with going outside of their comfort zone. Or some just want better climate, no matter how subjective that is.

So these are the main reasons why people move, or so it seems from our experience so far. If you are about to move to a new place, you can always count on us to help you through the process.
