Life is, most certainly, a journey filled with unexpected twists and turns, like the excitement of welcoming a new addition, retirement and starting a new adventure, or the bittersweet feeling of an empty nest. If one of these events is changing in your own life, you may be considering buying or selling a house. Through all these life-altering events, there is one common
thread—the need to move.

Reasons People Still Need To Move Today

Whether it is births, deaths, reaching the age of 65, marriages, or divorces, these big life changes are going to continue to impact people moving forward, even with the current affordability challenges brought on by higher mortgage rates and rising home prices.

High mortgage rates, home prices, and low inventory make today’s housing market particularly challenging, many of today’s buyers are still motivated by life changes, such as growing families, supporting elderly parents or grown children, or accommodating professional needs.
