Almost 40 Percent of Americans Plan to Move In 2022—Here’s What’s Driving Them
According to a recent survey from LendingTree, nearly 40 percent of Americans are considering a move in 2022—and that number is even higher for millennials (53 percent), and remote workers (53 percent).
But why, exactly, are so many people planning to move?
According to the survey, some of the key drivers behind so many Americans’ plans to move in the upcoming year include:
- More space. During COVID, people are spending more time at home than ever—and many of those people are realizing they need more space. Twenty-six percent of people surveyed said they were planning to move because their current home is too small.
- Owning their own home. The dream of homeownership is still alive in the US; 17 percent said they planned to move in 2022 to fulfill their dream of owning their own property.
- New features. Again, as people spent more time at home, many found that their current home didn’t have everything they wanted or needed—and, as such, 16 percent said they were considering moving because they were looking for different features in a home.
If you’re planning on making a move in the upcoming year (whatever the reason!), you’re not alone—so get in touch with a real estate agent, get the ball rolling on your search, and make 2022 the year you find the perfect home for you.
