Between 2012 & 2013, the Census Bureau reports that 35.1 million people moved.   So, any guesses as to why 35+ million people moved last year?  Let’s take a look at the Top 15 Reasons people moved in 2013.

#1- New or Better Home/Apartment- 14. 8%
#2- To establish Own Household-  10.4%
#3- New Job or Transfer- 9.0%
#4- Wanted Cheaper Housing- 8.3%
#5- Wanted to Own Home, Not Rent- 5.8%
#6- Closer to Work, Easier Commute- 5.4%
#7- Change in Marital Status- 5.1%
#8- Better Neighborhood, Less Crime- 3.2%

#10- To Look For Work or Lost Job- 2.1%
#11- Foreclosure/Eviction- 1.8%
#12- Retired- 0.7%
#13- To Attend/Leave College- 0.6%
#14- Health Reasons- 0.4%
#15- Change of Climate- 0.1%

If you find yourself like one of the 35 million americans and are considering moving, please give me a call.  Whether selling your home and moving to the beach (honestly, who else thought change of climate would be much higher?? I did) or a job relocation brings you to the Grand Junction area, I would be happy to help assist you in your real estate endeavors.
