How can I change the default location for all user home directories in Mac OS X 10.10.5?
I have found plenty of articles about moving a single folder at a time, but no instructions on how to change the default on all new users that are created.

Copy the existing user folder to a new location
ditto /Users /newpath
Setup a symlink to redirect to the new path
ln -s /newpath /Users
Or you can do it all in one line
ln -s -F /newpath /Users
