There are many reasons why a homeowner decides to sell their house and move. The latest Generational Trends Report from NAR asked recent home sellers to share their reason for moving.
The younger the respondents (ages 29 to 53), the more likely their top response centered around needing a larger home. Relocating for a job was the top reason for those ages 54 to 63 and the second most popular response for those under 53.
For homeowners over the age of 64, wanting to be closer to friends and family served as the top motivator to move. Downsizing to a smaller home or moving due to retirement came in as a close second and third.
Have you outgrown your current house? Are you a homeowner who can relate to wanting to be closer to family and friends? Is your house becoming a burden to clean now that the kids have moved out.
