Moving home can be stressful, time consuming and costly, which begs the question why do so many people move to a new house? From lack of space to a new job, our latest blog post explains the top 10 reasons why people decide that relocation is the best option…
1. Need more space
First time home buyers often start with a small ‘fit for purpose’ property to get a foot on the property ladder, but as their situation or circumstances change, they can see outgrow their starter home. It may be that they have met a partner and have plans to start a family meaning a larger home is required or change of job means more expendable income for a bigger mortgage.
Deciding whether to improve your existing property or move to a new house entirely can be a difficult decision. It can often be more cost effective to make alterations to your existing home to create additional space, but it’s not always possible, in which case people choose to move to a more practical home or they simple have the funds to upgrade.
3. New job
Relocation with a new job can sometimes mean commuting distance is simply too long so no longer an option. Buying a property closer to a new job means more time at home with family and friends.
