Move Meter

The Coldwell Banker Move Meter Index is a proprietary formula designed to provide consumers with an estimated Move Score to assist them in evaluating data comparing consumer factors between two cities within the United States. Scores will vary by location within the compared cities and property specifics. The Overall Move Score is based on aggregate data* provided by third-party public and private resources in four categories: “Housing Affordability,” Quality of Life,” “Job Market Strength,” and “Living Affordability.” *The data is compiled from over 40,000 U.S. cities and data for the geographic correlations are updated on a quarterly basis. The Move Score is based on a base score of 50, with 50 being the lowest score and 100 reflecting the highest score. The Move Meter Index is designed to provide an estimate of comparative scores for a consumer to use to compare two cities, in one tool, as part of their evaluation for making a move within the U.S. The data is not guaranteed accurate or intended to be comprehensive of all factors consumers might consider, and consumers should conduct their own research when determining whether to make a move to a particular place.
