Why do people move? Getting to the bottom of this helps all those in the real estate and related industries understand what potential customers and clients to target and market. It turns out that in 2016 “movers” were at an all time low as only 11.2% of us moved in the past year. Back to the original question though…., why?
Forty-two percent of movers said they moved for a housing related reason, such as they wanted a better home or apartment. Twenty-seven percent moved for a family related reason. Work relocations came in at 20% and 10% were “other”.
The south region saw the most “movement” as 901,000 of us moved out and 940,000 of us moved in. Well I guess that means its time for us at Scarlett Real Estate to roll up our sleeves!! We are living with a lot of movers and shakers. Call me if I can MOVE YOU! http://davebitter.scarlettrealestate.com
