Making a move can be very scary. It can be hard to make the change, especially if you thought your current home would be a forever place or circumstances like divorce, breaking up or a job change force you into a move.
And if you’re on the fence about a move and mulling it over, pulling the trigger can also be hard. Here are some things to consider when debating to move … or not.

If moving will elevate you to the next level, do it! These opportunities only come around once in a lifetime. You may not have the same opportunity again.
This is especially key if it will lift your salary in a big way.
Will it Help You Heal?
If you move, will you heal a divorce or break-up?
