INVITATION HOMES

Whether you’re moving across town or moving across the country, it’s always an exciting event. For many people, sharing their new place to live on social media is part of the process.

In fact, there are so many people using Instagram to share their new homes that we decided to dig into the numbers behind this popular trend. We analyzed more than 500,000 Instagram posts across the country that included hashtags related to moving or being in a new home. The hashtags included #movingday, #newhome, and #moving.

To help pull the best data, we looked at posts between May 2016 and July 2017 — more than a full year of data that included some of the peak months for moving.

Here’s what we found:

First, we wanted to see what cities across the country were the most likely to post their move on Instagram. It wasn’t a surprise that so many cities that are in beautiful locations, like the beach, are on this list.

We were also curious to see the most popular day to post on Instagram. Surprisingly, it wasn’t the weekend! Friday came in as the most popular day of the week.

Then, we wanted to look at posts specifically in some of our favorite cities. We were able to find some of the most popular spots to ‘gram your move.

Moving can be exciting, regardless of whether you’re moving somewhere close or somewhere far away. Having a new home and a new place to call your own is something worth sharing, and plenty of people are doing just that. When you post about your move, your friends and family can share in your excitement. The next time  you move into a new home, you should share too!
