A growing number of Americans are changing residences in an effort to move into a bigger home or a better neighborhood, according to a recent study by The most important reason people move is to live in a bigger or better home (26 percent), followed by living in a better neighborhood (24 percent); to be closer to family and friends (12 percent); to live in an area with a lower cost of living (9 percent); or because of a change in marital status (6 percent).
