There are many reasons why people think about moving house; it could be that they need or want to be in a different location, have a better view, need more space, or simply want a house with a different layout and all the latest fittings.
As estate agents, we are involved on a day to day basis with many different homes, seeing first hand what works well and how our living spaces impact our day to day lives. I have noticed over the past 15 years that the way we live in our houses has changed, with many more of us knocking through adjoining rooms or extending to create bright open plan living spaces. Architectural innovations such as walls of glass with bi-folding or sliding doors, and atrium-style glazed roof sections have become popular, adding a touch of Californian or Scandinavian design to our traditional British houses.
As a result, when people start to look into moving home, some find they don’t actually need to move at all to achieve the space they want for the next phase of their lives. Watching house-related TV shows or a quick visit to a new development to see a show home often gives people the inspiration they need, to either move house or indeed improve their own home.
We are fortunate to see many different houses, which is fascinating and gives us an understanding of what people want from their homes, and how to achieve layouts and designs that work. When we meet potential customers in their homes to carry out a valuation, we are able to advise on the ways in which homes can be improved for selling, and also how they can be changed it if they are thinking of staying.
