When is it Time to Move?

One of the biggest obstacles you may face is deciding whether it is time to move. Many factors influence a person’s move to a new location, whether right around the corner, to a new city, or even to a new state.

How do you know it is time to move to a new location?

We have combined several reasons why people decide to move, and if you fall into one of these categories, it may be time to consider a move!


  1. Your new job is not within driving distance, which is one of the most common reasons people move; to get closer to their job and shorten their commute.
  2. You have outgrown your current location. People often decide to move to a larger home, whether you are adding a new member to the family, are just married, have adopted a new pet, etc.
  3. Affordability! Many people find that renting is no longer affordable and are moving from their current locations to something much more affordable. Whether you rent or buy, the cost of living in an area greatly impacts whether you choose to stay or move to a new area.
  4. Safety of your current neighborhood. Many people decide to move because their current area is no longer making them feel comfortable in terms of safety. If you find yourself in this situation, you may find the cost of moving is a must to feel safe in your home.
  5. To be closer to family. Many people decide to move to be closer to family if you have an aging family. The same can be said when you extend your own family and want kids to be closer to grandparents, aunts, and uncles.


While these may be scenarios where you may want to move, remember that sometimes your desire to move comes into play. If you have yet to find that area that makes you feel like you are at home or simply looking for a change, these are both situations in which moving makes sense.
