While buying a new home or finding a new place to live can be exciting, it seems that a lot of people are staying put where they are simply because they don’t want to deal with moving. A new survey finds that while 46% of people have either recently moved, or plan to move in the next year, a lot of people would like to pick up and if it weren’t such a pain.
The truth is, 67% of people say they would definitely or probably move if moving wasn’t such a hassle. What’s more, 66% of people say they feel stuck in a home they don’t like because they don’t want to deal with moving, while 49% have stayed with a bad roommate just so they don’t have to go through the process of moving.
