The Involuntary Move
These days, some people may be moving to a new city for a change of scenery or a better job opportunity. But if you’re affected by the rough economy, a job loss or the mortgage crisis—or all three—you may face an unwanted move in the near future.
In a sign that increasingly shows that the U.S. is in a recession, more and more people are uprooting from their homes and moving in search of greener pastures without having jobs or living arrangements lined up. People living in the Great Lakes region, New Jersey, Indiana and Ohio are leaving in droves for states like North Carolina, West Virginia, Arizona and Wyoming, where the prospects seem to be better.
Experts say that if you do decide to leave your town, you should do as much advance research on your new city as possible. The last thing you want to do is move to a city you think is better off only to find out things aren’t so rosy.
We want to hear from you. Are you moving to a new city because of your current situation? Are you having a tough time doing so because of the economy? [Msnbc.com]
