Americans move from one home to another for a variety of reasons. Those that are fed up with sitting in traffic for hours on end each day may move to be closer to work. Living in an expensive city forces people to find more cost-effective alternatives. After a few years, people may decide to trade up and find a better neighborhood if they are looking to start a family. Natural disasters and the climate also play a role in the process of choosing where to live. Overall, most short-distance moves in the United States are made for housing reasons, whereas longer moves are more often made for job reasons. In addition, events that change your life, such as marriage or a loved one falling ill, prompt moving as well.
