What would entice you to move?

Most homeowners keep one eye on the property market, even if they don't’ have any intention of giving up their current property. It seems that in the UK we are obsessed with everything property, the saying “An English man’s home is his castle’ really is true for us Brits.

Some of us actively search for properties too, spending hours trawling through property websites, just so that we can say to ourselves we are in the best property for the best house, or perhaps we might find a deal or a bargain. Or is it that feeling of wanting to have a better home or a bigger home that drives some of us to keep looking.

So what would lure the average homeowner into parting with their current home? Perhaps it could be the promise of a better lifestyle, a move into a town with great amenities, their current property doesn’t have quite enough natural light, or is not in the best location. A close mover to work or to the kids school, a family house in the best catchment area, a family property with the latest kitchen and immaculate décor, perhaps a move into the country to enjoy a bit more of the good life. What could entice you to move?

Mortgage interest rates are at an all time low so it could be the attraction of getting a cheaper deal that could enable us to buy a larger property with the same monthly outgoings.
