Why do Americans move so often

Many Americans change their place of residence with enviable regularity. The average US resident moves 12 times in his life, according to the US Census Bureau.

Lena Lukashova talked with people of different ages and professions and identified three reasons for the frequent travels, which she described in her blog for “Yandex Zen" Moreover, the third reason was very curious. These people moved 6-8 times.

1. Independent life

Many Americans are not accepted to live with adult children, but because the children fly into a new nest. Often, even if the offspring has not yet met his couple. In this case, he moves to a hostel or apartments, rented together with fellow students.

This also includes studies in another city / state, which is also common here; creating a family. Further, the second reason awaits.

2. New job

Residents of America are very mobile. They will easily respond to the offer to work in another city, and sometimes the state.

Change Los Angeles to New York? Why not, especially if the new salary and prospects are more attractive.

Rented housing also plays a role, and the greater efficiency that comes with it makes it easier to make changes: there is no need to put up a house for sale and spend time on the subsequent transaction process.

3. Increase in rental value by the owner

Perhaps this is the most curious and at the same time logical reason. Moreover, the cost is obviously raised not adjusted for the percentage of inflation, but much higher.

“I was paying $ 1600 a month for a one bedroom apartment. A year later, the owner raised the lease to $ 1900. Allegedly adjusted for that very inflation. I was outraged because prices in the United States did not rise that much in a year, ”says Stella from California.

She paid the rent on time, there were no violations for the year on her part. However, the owner was adamant: he lost only $ 65.

“The most interesting thing is that for the new tenant the rent will be exactly $ 1600, as it was before for me. Plus, the apartments will be empty for some time until there is someone willing. But, as they say here: business, nothing personal ”.

Stella moved to another apartment, not agreeing to a new price.

Not everyone does the same. Mary has been living in a two-bedroom apartment in Aliso Viejo, a small California town, for 10 years. During this time, rent has doubled: from $ 2000 per month to $ 4200. At the same time, for the last price you can rent a huge house with three bedrooms. Or find similar apartments, but at a much better price.

However, Mary is in no hurry to move out.

“We have settled down here for a long time, everything is like native. Plus, my husband and I have grown in income over the years, there are no problems with payment. We have had enough travel, we don’t want to change our place of residence, ”she shrugs.

So the increase in rental by the owner motivates not all to move out. I can’t say that such a trend is observed in every community (residential complex), but many have told me about increasing rents after a year of life.
