Every so often, we are faced with the need to move to a new house. There are many reasons that brings about the need to move to new residences despite the hustle and headaches involved in moving house.
One of the major cause for people to move houses is due to the need for distance convenience. People usually prefer to live close to the places where they frequent. This helps reduce the costs of transportation to the said destination or destinations and also it also reduces the time spent travelling.
One of the most common reasons that people go out looking for a house due to the need for distance convenience is when young individuals are finally mature and they can survive independently without depending on their parents or guardians. Usually this happens when the said individuals get jobs that can sustain them. Many times this happens especially when they get jobs that are far away from their parents’ home (At times people who get jobs that can sustain them still continue to live with their parents if the jobs are close to home).
Another reason related to distance convenience that causes people to move to different houses due to their workplace location is when they get a new job. They could be currently working but they might happen to get another job that is situated in a different locality. As such, these individuals may need to move nearer to the new work place. This also happens when the said persons get a job transfer, i.e. the same employer sends the employee to work from a different locality.
People also frequently move to a new house due to other conveniences apart from distance convenience. A major impetus for people to move is the need to save costs. People may find it necessary to move to a different house that is less costly so as to save money. There are HDB houses that are much cheaper to rent than others while still offering similar facilities. One may want to save costs by moving to the cheaper house.
Singaporeans also move house due to the need of having a living environment that is more suitable. For example, some people will move to a new house despite it being more expensive but it could have a quieter environment, the house may offer better additional facilities such as a safe environment for kids.
People in Singapore at times rent rooms for the short term if they are short of funds, if they want to save costs, or if they will only be living in a given locality for a short time. After some time these people will usually move to another residence.
Many times people are forced by circumstances to move to new houses. For example, a couple may need to move to a bigger house once they have kids and the family gets bigger. A larger house will be needed to accommodate the additional family members. This is also the case when one has household items that the current house cannot comfortably accommodate due to lack of enough room.
