    Generally it would be "move out".

    Example: (referring to our apartment): We moved in during the summer holidays and we moved out by Christmas.

    Southern AE greatly modified by a 1st-generation Scottish-American mother, and growing up abroad.
    "Move in" is a compound concept, involving two elements. There can be no single opposite expression until you determine whether you want the opposite of move or the opposite of in-- or the compount opposite (of both).

    These are:

    1. Stay in.

    2. Move out.

    3. Get out and stay out. Don't come back. This is not negotiable.
