– the size or make-up of your family has changed,

– you want better schools,

– your commute is too long,

– you don’t like remodeling,

– you don’t like your neighborhood,

– your home has a bad floor plan,

– you don’t like your yard,

– remodeling is too expensive,

– your home is already the largest and nicest in the neighborhood, or

– you will likely move in the next few years anyway.

In addition to these most frequently cited reasons to move, there are many others. Your reasons might be different from those listed here.
