The percentage of moving in US is increasing rapidly!
Most Americans are constantly on the lookout for a job improvement. At times like these, the first thing people look into is a new locality that would help them save their hard-earned dollars. But that’s not going to help much. It’s, indeed, going to get your pockets pinched which nobody understands. This is one of the reasons for the frequent moves. According to statistical reports, every year, 1 out of 6 Americans relocate for a better job. An American, on an average, relocates 11 to 12 times in his life time. The count is indeed surprising. Isn’t it?
When it comes to moving, home owners sell their house and buy a new house while tenants search for rented house in new localities. In the search for job improvement to make profit, people tend to spend a lot. And moving to new locality is one among the most stressful situations that people could face in their lives. Especially when it comes to long distance moving, you need to hire a good moving company that can provide you with the right moving supplies and boxes at affordable rates. Regardless of what you get, moving is anyway a tedious task. Moving companies describe it as - “It really doesn’t matter if you’ve got checklists, moving is tedious anyway. Packing could be even more daunting."
But, why is the percentage of moving increasing? What’s the reason? Is income the only reason? Yes, of course, it’s the only reason. While it’s true that the U.S. Economy has gained 2.8 million jobs since 2010*, we can’t deny the fact that 8 million jobs have been lost also. According to the Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2011 stats,
“Median family household income declined by 1.7 percent in real terms between 2010 and 2011 to $62,273”.
While it’s true that leaving friends and family is very hard, it’s even more daunting to cope up with poverty.
