usermod -d

from man usermod:

        -d, --home HOME_DIR
            The user's new login directory.

            If the -m option is given, the contents of the current home
            directory will be moved to the new home directory, which is 
            if it does not already exist.

But, as I said, it might not work so well, because of applications,
which store path names in their configuration files.
