Why aren't more people moving? Well, according to a survey administered to over 1,000 American adults, 66% of those people feel that the hassles of the moving process have forced them to feel stuck in a home they simply do not like. If moving were a little more stress-free, then the two-thirds who are feeling trapped would be taking that plunge, according to Real Trends and the GRAR.
Of those who have moved, here are some of the top reasons Real Trends and GRAR say they chose to do so:
- 37% moved to find more affordable housing
- 28% moved for their job
- 19% moved to evade less-than-appealing neighbors
- 13% moved for their pets
