Americans Are Settling Down, Should I Move, Stay, Change Up Housing?

To move or not and where is your home suppose to be anywhere?

When you are not a gypsy, a fugitive, or hobo with the stick and bandanna of all you own in this World. Hopping slow moving freight train box cars. To points unknown. I have read six out of ten adults, 63% of us have moved to at least one new community in our lives and a little over a third have never left our hometowns.

One movers and shakers housing study reports most adults have not ventured outside their current state in our country. While about 15% have lived in four states or more.houlton maine usa canada border crossing photo

So if you are one in the audience that needs to go, raise your hand.

The urge to get up and go move is motivated by lots of factors in a person's life. Sometimes eviction, lack of payment and a dire change in your day to day life situation the kick in the pants.

Or family size increases and the place the stork made fly over, parachute letting go aerial deliveries to is busting apart, stretching too tightly at the seams.

Or hi ho, here we go with a too good to pass up relocation due to a job employment promotion. A once in a lifetime chance for career advancement.

Or an easy, nasty divorce makes the place you shared for awhile. One that has to be sold.

Or the two of you flip a coin to like in the Clash song, should I stay or should you go?

But let's just assume for this real estate blog post exercise today whatever the reason, a sale of the current house is needed. Gonna happen.

You have the green light to giddy up. Neck rein hard and head out onto the prairie. The we don't now where you are going but it is gonna, has to happen. Better sooner than later.

But like last call and the music stops, "you can not stay here", where you are now comes over the PA system. Good night.

Better grab your maine home photocoat, gloves, hat and head out into the wild blue yonder darkness prepared. You gotta have a new housing plan to throw into gear.

In the come on, move along, step ahead, no loitering allowed.

What is good to know in the gotta go? Before it becomes pushed leads to shoved with a painful urgency.

Where in a hurry it is always more expensive financially and way way more emotional stress.

Because things start spinning out of control. From sheer lack of planning time  to prepare for the many unknowns.

That need an on the ball, experienced real estate professional to help charter the course. Looking at the stars and seeing the way to sell it, buy it. Charter the course. For the hands wiped, rubbed, brushed  together. We're done here.

The well thought out steps to the landing at the right combination of four walls, floor and a roof or anything worthwhile in your life.

Requires a little talk, a degree of prayer, and making your own luck all mixed up into one cocktail.

Hi Andrew.  63% and 33% add up to 96%.  What did the other 4% do?

CA ... They must be running from the law, could not take time for a survey when living on the lamb, below radar.

Andrew,  Very nice post.  There are many people who are afraid to leave the comfort of their home towns and then there are the adventurous who want to get out and experience life.  Interesting numbers!  Not sure about that 4% though ... lol

Erin ... Most Americans live within 25 miles of their mothers too some studies prove. Educational levels tie in with the close to home statistics too.  Home is carried in your heart... like the I'll be home for Christmas even if only in my dream lament or comfort. Thanks Bing. Not the search engine. (Smile)

Andrew - Here in AZ, we get people who move from all over the country. Many come for college or a new job, or a change in weather. However, I have found that if they can last at least 3 summers, the will typically stay. If they can't stand the heat of 3 summers, they will probably move back to wherever their 'home' was.

Troy ... The weather and thickness, thiness is part of the stick. Jobs or income that follows them here is part of the how do we survive, make a living too!

I've lived in two states and truth be known I would move today if I could talk the boss into it

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) over 5 years ago

CA ... Rinse that eye out with a solution, it should be open and working like the other before the day is out.

JD ... Remember the golden rule, four little words. "Yes dear, probably right." Make nothing a bone of contention. Happy wife, happy life.

Many Maryland retirees are moving out of state as they seek lower taxes and an environment that will be enjoyed during their retirement years.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 5 years ago

Good morning Andy. For some moving has something to do with not being satisfied with where they are, I love where I live. Some have a goal of moving to warmer weather, if I want warm I can go inside or hop a plane and get warmed up for a week or so.

Make it a great week!

Andrew Mooers I have lived in 5 states and moved away from Mom in my 20's. She chased me down in my 40's and moved to MA, but we were never in the same town again.  I have been set in my town now since 1994 and have no plans of moving on, but I was intrigued by the stats and the great blog post.

Posted by Larry Lawfer, "I listen for a living." It's all about you. (YourStories Realty Group powered by Castles Unlimited®) over 5 years ago

Roy ... Property taxes, crime, cost of living all factor into the move and the stage of the life they are at.

Joe ... Motivation, it varies like the weather.

LL ... You are a mover....or you are not. Or somewhere in between.
