Reasons You Might Want to Move Out of State in 2022

If the change of seasons has you considering an out-of-state move, but you’re not quite sure if it’s quite the right decision yet, you certainly have many factors to take into account to make sure you’re making the right move (no pun intended). If you’ve been wanting a change for a while now, you may have already considered where and why you want to make this big change, but just want a sign that it’s time to move on. Well, this could be it! 


If you’re in the right space financially and mentally to make this change, don’t be afraid to at least begin looking for your next home in another state. There are tons of reasons why people might make this change, but to make sure you’re truly ready, you should make sure to do your due research. If you’re considering a move but aren’t totally sold yet, we’ve got the top 10 signs you should move out-of-state in 2022.

  • You Need a Change of Scenery

Feeling stagnant in your life or environment isn’t something anybody wants to feel, and if you’ve been feeling stuck or want to get away, it might be time to start checking out the other states that appeal to you. It can never hurt to look and see what other environments have to offer!

  • Your State Doesn’t Have Anything You’re Interested in

In a similar vein as our last reason, if you’re sick of your routine and in what your state has going on, it could be time for change to see what other places have to offer.

  • You Miss Your Family

Living far away from close family can be rough, especially when they’re many states away. If you moved to another state previously but now are missing your folks, it might be a fun prospect to look into moving closer to your support system.

  • You’re Unsatisfied in Your Career

Moving to a new state can bring you tons of new job prospects or career opportunities. If you’re sick of your current job or aren’t feeling appreciated, look at job options in a state that appeals to you, or even a career change! 

  • You’re Straight-Up Unhappy

Your environment can have a big impact on your mood or general feelings toward life. If you’re constantly miserable due to your environment or living situation, it could be time to give yourself a change.

  • You Don’t Like the Climate

Whether you have issues with hot or cold weather, living in an environment where you don’t vibe with the climate can make you miserable year-round. If you hate your state’s weather, it could be time to move somewhere with a climate that’s more suited to you!

  • You’ve Outgrown Your Home

Moving to a new state can let you get a larger home that’s more suited to you and more cost-effective than your current set up. If you feel you’ve outgrown your current home, you might benefit from looking into other states’ housing markets.


More people than ever have decided to embark on cross-country or out of state moves due to the rise of remote work over the past couple of years, and 2022 has been no different so far. However, moving out of state can even bring you not only new housing options, but new career opportunities and ways to grow in your career and as a person!
