Quoting James Greenwood of Stacks Property Finders
If you are serious about relocating for your bank balance’s sake, how do you ensure the town you pick is a good place to live?
James Greenwood, at Stacks property search (stacks.co.uk), says: ‘First, I analyse all the written information that is in the public realm such as any neighbourhood development plans, Facebook groups, news of any local clubs and societies, crime figures and Ofsted reports,’ he says.
‘Equally important, I walk the streets and get an impression of the place. Vacant shops on the High Street are a bad sign but good quality restaurants and bars mean people enjoy the social life there.
‘Look for a mixed age demographic — a hipster hotspot isn’t for everyone and neither is a pensioners’ enclave. Are there good communication links and are public spaces well kept? I talk to people. Do they like living there?’

When making probably the most important financial decision of your life, it pays to have the right advisors at your side.
A holiday home is often an interesting mix of investment and heartfelt connection. You want to use it, but you may well also be keen for others to use it too. We can advise you on what factors to consider in making your decision. And we can then find the perfect holiday home for you to enjoy.
Others say, ‘location, location, location’. We say, ‘location, purpose, price, capital growth, rental returns’… the list goes on. Knowing the market is critical. Local knowledge is key. We ensure all aspects of your investment decision are addressed. Finding, analysing, negotiating, and completing… it’s what we do.
Relocating is time consuming and stressful. We regularly work with clients who live abroad. We hunt, short-list, prepare your viewings, and make the search process as easy as possible. We oversee the negotiations, manage the conveyancing, and deal with the headaches, so you can concentrate on other aspects of your move.
Retirement or semi-retirement is an exciting stage in life. Finding the right home to live in and enjoy it to the full is important. We know that and will do all that we can to understand what you’re looking for… before starting to search. And search we will, until we find the house of your dreams.
