For a lot of people, London can represent a way of life. It can be high-octane, full of vibrant nightlife juxtapose with long hours in the office. There are some who wine and dine in London’s most elegant restaurant and high-end wine bars. Other dress to impress and hit the West End in their best attire. However, sometimes our circumstances change. And for whatever reason, we find that we need to relocate.
One of the growing trends for people in London is to retain their home in the capital. Rather than sell their London property, they are opting to rent in their new location. There are various reasons for this, not least being able to retain their investment at London house prices. At Aussie, we know that trends shift, and people’s needs change over time. That’s why we stay ahead of the curve by listening to our customers ‘changing requirements.
Reasons Why People Retain Their Properties in London –
There are many reasons why people choose to pack up and leave London. A job offer in a nearby city is too good to turn down. A family issue means we must head back to our hometown. There are also times where life in the capital can get too much, and we need somewhere quieter to live.
This would often mean selling up and moving out of the London property to help finance the purchase of a new house or apartment. However, after talking with some of our customers who move out of London, they inform us of a different approach.
A growing trend is people are keeping their London property and renting or buying a second home in their new town or city. For a lot of people, a property in London is a sound investment. The house prices in London may dip at times, but in general, they represent a steady rate of profit that is relatively safe in comparison to investing.
Sometimes people return to London because they miss the pace of life in the capital. There is no comparison to London’s entertainment anywhere else in the UK. The shopping districts are world renowned, and there are excellent restaurants and places to enjoy drinks for every taste.
How a Reliable Man & Van is the Ideal Fit for Moving Between Two Properties –
It’s also possible to rent out your London property for a sizeable profit. With the rising success of short-term rental sites like Airbnb, you can make a decent amount of money by keeping your London property and renting it out.
That’s where a Man & Van service becomes invaluable. Aussie’s Man & Van service is very popular with property developers and landlords due to the additional labour and hourly rates. You only pay for the time you use, and it’s easier for Man & Van can navigate London’s traffic during peaks hours.
There is also an advantage to using Man & Van when relocating to your new town or city. Rather than moving everything in one significant move, some of our customers prefer to be able to split the relocation into smaller runs. If you plan on keeping a property, you might not want to move all your possessions over in one go. This is especially true if you choose to rent out your London property. It might be cheaper to keep your furniture in London and buy new when you move.
