Why Renters Move

Among the 13 million renter-occupied housing units in which householders had moved in the past year, just over half cited one of these five factors as the main reason for leaving their previous residence...

1. To establish own household (11.7%)
2. New job or job transfer (11.6%)
3. To be closer to work (11.6%)
4. Needed larger house or apartment (8.5%)
5. Wanted better home (6.6%)
