Situations that may cause you to move
- Personal choices and advancement: You may be seeking for opportunities to advance your education or career. You may also want to move away from your hometown to expose yourself to different cultures or opportunities.
- Retirement: You might have been working and saving to have a great retirement transition. Some retirees prefer to move to locations that they feel will be less stressful for them and those that will enable them to literally live their lifetime dream.

Factors that determine if you should move
To definitively decide if you should move, the following factors should be put into consideration:
- Climate: Climatic conditions affect aspects of your life and your mental health too. Choose a region with climate that will suit you well.
- Employment opportunities: In case you want to go to an area where you can advance your career, move to a state where there is high demand for the services provided by your profession. Do your research on the income levels available there.
- Taxes: A large percentage of people prefer to make interstate moves so as to ease the burden of tax on them. The five states that do not collect sales taxes for retail sales are Oregon, Delaware, New Hampshire, Montana and Alaska. Also, the states of Texas, Alaska, Wyoming, Tennessee, Nevada, Alaska, Florida and Wyoming do not collect individual income taxes.
- Healthcare facilities: If you have any pre-existing medical attention that requires close supervision, you have to source a good healthcare facility in the location that you will be moving to.
- Affordability: Consider if the location you want to move to offers you a good lifestyle that still fits your budget. Your move should offer you a better quality of life and if the new location offers a lower cost of living, this will be beneficial to you.
Making a move is a big issue which needs all the small issues looked into well. In case the situations are favorable for you to move, you can make the move confidently. Be sure to make the decision to move based on actual facts and not on assumptions. Long distance moves are a big deal and therefore, proper decision making goes a long way in determining if you are making a successful move.
