The pandemic has changed our world in many ways – and since early 2020 the whole world has been holding its collective breath hoping for the day when life gets back to normality.
One of the parts of life you might consider now that another new year has dawned is the idea of moving house. Moving house is a huge part of life but it is also something that many of us want to do to make a fresh start and life more comfortably.
Today we are going to talk about why you should consider moving house now while the pandemic is still ongoing and how it can benefit you.
House prices are lower
The first reason to move house this year is that the house prices are lower at the moment. Due to the pandemic, everything has been thrown up in the air and the value of many houses is lower than it once was. To make the most of your move you might want to consider looking now to see what kind of bargains you might come across.
Less people are moving
It is a good idea to move at this time while the pandemic is ongoing because there are less people moving house right now. Many people are focused on other things far too much to be worrying about moving house – and this is a huge benefit to you. Less competition means less risk of having to enter a bidding war with others, and as a result you will be more likely to get the house you want at the price you want it.
Get away from your current home
It is a great idea now to get away from the same old four walls you’ve been stuck within for the last 10 months. Since last March most of us have been largely confined to our homes and by now we are all likely sick of the sight of our house. Take the chance now to make a change and move house to make a new start in fresh surroundings.
The roads will be quiet
When moving house most of us will choose a friday or a Saturday simply for the convenience of it between working days. If you are considering moving house at these peak times you would usually have to compete with a lot of traffic on the road which might end up slowing down your process.
This is why moving during the pandemic can be brilliant because there are less cars on the road. Now is the time to learn more and hire some movers for your big move.
You can make a fresh start
Making a fresh start is just what many of us need at the moment in our lives. After the hardship, we’ve all faced in the last year a lot of us are feeling less motivated and happy than we once were. Consider making a fresh start now and start off your new year in the best way with a whole new chapter ahead of you.
