Daily Real Estate News  |  June 7, 2011  |   How Happy Are People About Moving?
More people aren’t happy to be moving. In fact, the number of people unhappy about moving is nearly four times higher than the historical average, according to results of a new moving sentiment survey by Moving Day Boxes.

When survey respondents were asked whether their circumstances surrounding their last move was happier than their current move, more than 70 percent of those surveyed answered “yes.”

"Unfortunately, since November 2008 more and more moves have been forced upon people for reasons outside of their control -- that is moving back home because of a job loss, moving in with parents or relatives to save money, or moving into a smaller residence that is less expensive,” says Matt McCabe, co-founder and president of MovingDayBoxes.com.
