Half of Brits unhappy with their current home

More than half of Brits are unhappy with their current home.

A staggering 53 percent are dissatisfied with their property and have set their sights on moving to their “forever home”, according to research by online house sellers nested.com.

Size really matters

Rather than being sold on location, location, location, 57 percent of us prioritise the size of a property rather than where it is.

The number of bedrooms matter to 53 percent of those questioned while 52 percent placed location as the third most important factor in planning a house move.

Other important considerations are price (50 percent), proximity to green spaces (46 percent) and good transport links (31 percent).

Forever home a dream

Ben Bailey, of nested.com, said: “Our ‘Forever Homes’ study shows that, as a nation, we are unsatisfied with where we current live, with the majority of us planning on moving again in order to bag that property of our dreams.

“Currently, there are too many factors that make us reluctant to make leap into our forever home.”

Moving can be painful

He said: “From potential changes to stamp duty to unsupportive estate agents through to unreliable chains, home moving has been painful for too long.

“At nested.com, we believe everyone should be able to realise their dream of owning their forever home. That’s why we will advance buyers the money to secure the property of their dreams, removing the stress of broken chains.”
