Stress, Stress, Stress!
Want to find out how to avoid stress?
If I tell you that most people find moving home a stressful experience, I imagine you probably wouldn’t disagree.
It’s certainly bad enough for renters who have to keep moving, however, for homeowners it’s far worse!
Apparently it’s so bad, that most Britons find moving home more stressful than having a baby, getting divorced, starting a new job or getting married.
Well…I’ve done three of those (I won’t tell you which three) and they can all be pretty stressful!
New research involving 2,000 home owners, from online agent Yopa, found that one in four home movers were left feeling depressed and ill, while 65 per cent had lost sleep.
The most stressful part of the process was the cost of the actual move, which averaged £6,600 including legal and estate agents’ fees.
Apparently the bulk of this is legal costs…isn’t it?
Despite their frequently negative moving experiences, 62 per cent said that moving home worked out fine in the end…and so they all lived happily ever after…
Now … I have just realised that there is something positive to say about the Brexit debacle – whilst the impasse and uncertainty continues to stagnate the housing market, no one is moving!
No stress! Happy days!
