Moving home is becoming a rarity

Following a recent survey by Savills estate agents on behalf of BBC news, it looks like moving home is becoming a rarity with more people choosing to extend and renovate.  This is not only due to the rise in house prices, but also the cost of moving and availability of suitable property.

According to Savills, before 2008 the average family moved 3.6 times after buying their first property which has now fallen to 1.8 times over their lifetime.  This is certainty true form my family.  We have remained in the same property for 21 years, extending and improving over the years as our requirements change.

If you are thinking of a new start, why not consider extending, renovating or redesigning your current home.  For a free initial consultation, please get in touch. Email: mark@b-dbm.co.uk or Tel: 07971177573.
