Seven Reasons Why People in Kent Are Moving This Year

Seven Reasons Why People in Kent Are Moving This Year

In this two-minute read, we look at seven reasons people
in Kent are upping sticks and moving out, on, and upwards.

Over the years, we’ve helped hundreds of people across Kent
move home successfully.

The reasons why people move are varied, but in our
experience, they tend to be one of the seven ‘L’s.

What are the seven ‘L’s? Fear not, dear reader, because
we’re about to reveal them below.


A new romantic relationship is a beautiful
time in people’s lives. And when things get serious in the love stakes, the
decision to move in together is one that fuels the moving market.


Sadly, on the flip side, when a loved one
dies, or a relationship ends, this can also be a catalyst for people to want to
move out and on to a different chapter of their lives.


When love turns into a family, then the
demand for being near good schools motivates movers as much as anything we come
across. That’s why people will pay a premium to be within the catchment areas
of great places for their children to learn and develop.


A change is as good as a rest as the old
saying goes. People’s lifestyles change as they get older, and their
circumstances change. This is the driving force behind people upsizing, downsizing,
and relocating.

Location, location, location

One of the main motivating moving factors.
It might be about being nearer to loved ones, an open space, good schools,
transport links, even a view. Location is always up there as one of the most
popular reasons people move.


When children get older and spread their
wings to seek their own nests, the family home can often seem a little too big.
This can be the cue for people wanting to downsize and free up some of the
equity in their current home.


The pandemic has made many of us
re-evaluate our lives. And spending so much time indoors and at home has made
many people want somewhere new to live. It could be because of a lack of space,
a need for a garden, or to be nearer loved ones.

Whatever your reason for thinking about
moving, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
