I appreciate the way this is laid out and gives some interesting information. The reasons for buying i think i learned from there

I find it very interesting that the median distance for a move to a different house seemed to increase for each age bracket, the older groups moving farther away from their previous home. I would have expected it to be the reverse.

Interesting statistics! I wouldn't have thought so many people moved to avoid doing renovations/avoid problems with major systems.

I love infographics. they make information so much easier for me to digest. there are some interesting stats on this one, too.

I can completely relate to this, we bought an already built home. We made some changes and made it our own 24 years ago and couldn't be happier. I find it interesting that the median changed with the various age groups. We are considering making a 500 mile move because our parents are gone and nothing is really holding us here anymore.

When I grow up I want to be just like you, however, I am getting older and would like to get some of your knowledge as I am opening a nonprofit homeless shelter, feel free to email me if you feel like sharing.
