Change of Address - lowered my score

Does anyone know why your credit score drops when you move to a new address?  My Fico score dropped about 25 points due to a change in address.  If I move which I plan to do, how can i prevent my score from dropping?

An address change NEVER changes your FICO score. Something else must have changed on your report. Do a comparison of your old report and your latest report to see what changed. I'm sure you'll find it.

LMAO!! The thought of score drop from an address change. You know that'll probably end up in the mix of scoring eventually.
