Research reveals people’s moving day motivations

Results: we asked 4,000 homeowners and first-time buyers in the UK about their property preferences

Results: we asked 4,000 homeowners and first-time buyers in the UK about their property preferences

Nearly half of homeowners are inspired to buy a new property to gain extra space, while almost a quarter are driven to escape their neighbours, according to a national poll we conducted.

We questioned an equal mix of 4,000 homeowners and first-time buyers in the UK to find out what motivated them to purchase property and how they made their choice.

Among the 2,000 home-owning respondents, nearly half (47.9%) said they wanted to relocate to gain a bigger house and more space. The next popular reason was a dislike of their neighbours (23.5%).

Nearly one-fifth (19.9%) of homeowners identified being closer to work or school as a reason to up-sticks. As the market speeds up, 17.1% wanted to secure a new home before prices rose.

When it came to the most important aspect of choosing a property for first-time buyers, location was the number one of more than two-fifths (42.5%). Location was also the most common top priority for UK homeowners too (45.8%).

Andrew Richards, Linden Homes Group managing director, said: “We knew location would be a major home-buying consideration, but we didn’t expect neighbour relations to be such a motivator to move.

“It does reinforce for us the importance of our philosophy of not just building homes, but creating communities where people want to live.”
