More Americans Move to Improve

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 Relocation.com. 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).

A similar survey Relocation.com conducted in March found that people were more likely to move because of recession-related reasons. The shift in customer attitudes between the two surveys indicates that consumer confidence and optimism are improving, the company says.
