Whether you are a frequent mover, or you rarely move at all, the process of relocation is a psychological experience as well as an emotional one.  These emotional feelings, the stress of relocation, are usual tied into the hope for a new beginning, previous crushing disappointments, loss, anxiety, fear and symbolism of past events.

Moving away from ones home is, in a very real sense, like moving from an area of safety to an area of the unknown, and that causes stress.

Will you take a loss on the sale, or will you be buying a home of equal or lesser quality in the new city.  These thoughts can keep a person up at night, tossing and turning with worry.
