But how many people are looking to relocate—and what’s driving those relocation decisions?

recent survey from LendingTree found that nearly half (46%) of respondents were planning to relocate in the next year—and that number was even higher for people who can work remotely (64%).

  • A desire to reduce living expenses (44%);
  • Feeling their current home was too small (27%); and
  • Looking for different features in a home (27%)
