The new year is hands-down the best time of the year for making important changes to our lives. For those considering relocation in 2020, moving into a new home—and perhaps a new city, state, or even country as well—could be one of the most impactful resolutions you make that will set the tone for the entire decade.

That said, we understand that relocation isn’t something to take lightly. As one of the oldest and most trusted local and long-distance movers in the nation, our team at Coleman Worldwide Moving has been relocating individuals, families, and businesses to new homes all over the world since 1914. We know how important it is to make the right decision about relocation, and how a well-planned move can change lives for the better. If you’ve been weighing your options in consideration of a move in the new year, asking yourself these important questions might help you get closer to making the best choice.

Are You Satisfied with Your Current Home?

There are many reasons to feel unsatisfied with the home you’re living in. For example, your home might have become too small for you and your family. Or, changes might have made it suddenly seem too big. You might feel overwhelmed with the amount of rent you’re paying or with the monthly mortgage and want lower bills. Other reasons for moving might include a city or neighborhood that’s become too expensive for your current budget, or job-related issues that are forcing you to look elsewhere to continue your career. 

The reasons for feeling unsatisfied with your current home are endless. Whatever your personal reasons may be, think hard about the issues that are bothering you and why they matter. Ask yourself what you’re missing by living where you are, and whether a change will truly help you to feel more positive, less stressed, or happier. 

Are You Craving a More Modern Lifestyle?

Believe it or not—it’s the year 2020, and technology has advanced considerably in the last decade. Today’s newest homes are equipped with incredible smart features and energy-saving additions that save you money and reduce your carbon footprint. If you’re thinking about making a change that better reflects more modern and advanced society, take a look at some of the homes on the market and compare them to your current one. 

For example, some newer, more modern homes have solar panels, heated floors, energy-saving doors, windows, and siding. Other features include touch lighting, state-of-the-art alarm systems, and HVAC systems that can be controlled from an app on your phone. If you’re living in a home that guzzles energy and fossil fuels like there’s no tomorrow, you might be right in thinking that it’s time to join the modern world in a newer, better home.

Are You Satisfied with Your Career and Job Prospects?

One of the most common reasons for relocation is a work-related move. If you’ve been transferred or have been hired to work in a new city, state, or even a new country, congratulations—this can be one of the most exciting moves you’ll make in your lifetime. 

If you’re merely thinking about moving to a new place for job-related reasons, there’s no better time to focus on getting things going than right now. A new year and a new decade are excellent reasons to leave behind what no longer serves you (a boring or dead-end job) for greener pastures (a new career and an exciting adventure in a new city). 

Are You Happy or Unhappy with Your Relationship?

After work-related moving, relationship-related moving is perhaps the second most common reason for a household relocation. If you’re not happy in your relationship and considering making a move in 2020, this could be a good time to call it quits. 

On the other hand, if you are happy in your relationship, you might decide to make a move to live closer together, or even with each other. Either way, making the change could be just what both of you need to start 2020 off on the right foot.
