Make Finding the Right Realtor Your No. 1 Resolution

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is when many of us start formulating resolutions. Do we need to eat healthier? Get to the gym more often? Move into our dream house?

The first two resolutions are among the top 10 in the U.S. The third one? Not quite on the list, but still a goal a lot of homeowners set out for themselves. The reasons why vary, from getting a new job to retiring altogether. The No. 1 reason people move, though, is they want a new or better home.

If that’s the reason moving is on your list of New Year’s resolutions, we’ve got good news. Moving around the corner will not only give you the new home you’re hoping for, but it can fulfill a lot of common resolutions, too.

How selling a house can help fulfill your other New Year’s resolutions

It may sound a bit out of the ordinary, but when people decide where to live, 75% of men and 64% of women stay in their hometown, according to North American Moving Services survey. And 60% of young adults move close to home after college, reports Marketplace.

There are a lot of advantages to making a micro-move. Familiarity plays a big role, as do community connections. Strong ties with neighbors, friends, and local organizations built over time are hard to replicate, as many residents of The Landings already know.

Community connections provide the positive energy, outlook, and determination it takes to live life to the fullest, says Elevance Health, a health benefits organization. Living life to the fullest was the top New Year’s resolution for respondents to a GoBankingRates.com survey, which suggested that happiness can be found not in making major life changes, but in enjoying what’s already in front of you.

In other words, while you may want a change of scenery in the New Year, finding a new home with the amenities you’ve always dreamed of around the corner from friends and family might be just what you’re looking for.

Spending more time with friends and family is also one of the top resolutions in the U.S. – and for good reason. Your social circle is a better predictor of wellness, according to a PLoS One study, including stress, happiness, positive attitude, and self-assessed health than data on a fitness tracker, such as physical activity, heart rate, and sleep. Right there you’re checking off popular resolutions like exercising more, getting in shape, and reducing stress.
