Mayflower moves tens of thousands of families and individuals every year. Our experience helps us understand where people move, but we don’t always know why they move. In 2013, Mayflower began its Mover Insights Study to learn about the motivation behind various relocations. Each year since we have sponsored a consumer survey to identify the nation’s top moving trends.
If millennials recently moved in next door, they may not stay long. A new survey, conducted by Mayflower, shows two in five millennials have moved to a new city without the intention of staying permanently.
According to the millennial-focused 2016 Mayflower Mover Insights study, 51 percent of millennials cite having moved to a new city, state or country for employment, 46 percent have moved to be with or find a romantic partner and 44 percent have moved to be closer to family.
