With a record number of people selling up, Home assesses the pros and cons of city buzz and country life
1 Are you just bored?
The first question that the buying agent James Greenwood asks new clients at Stacks Property Search is not “How many bedrooms?”, but “Why are you moving?”. His advice: if you can’t come up with a good reason, don’t.
8 Do you need to support elderly family?
