Home mover statistics which are a real eye opener

When we first published this info-graphic article we were blown away by the response and positive comments on Twitter.

Who would have thought statistics on house movers could be so interesting? When you think about it though, as landlords it is useful to know why, how and when people move mome.

I think what’s caught peoples attention is the info-graphic (picture based story). It’s a great way to present lots of information and statistics in a visual and appealing way to grab interest. When Why and How Many People Move Home

We didn’t produce the info-graphic and it is slightly promotional as it includes a link to the website of a removal company and also their logo. However, as they bribed made a generous donation to the upkeep of the Property118 forum we think we can probably forgive them for being an incy-wincy-teeny-weeny bit promotional. We would do exactly the same 😉

Interesting article [ I figure i will have moved 8 times by the time i take up permanent residence.] Whilst reading this article discussing the effect of timing related to re-moval costs ,etc.;-Something which i have noticed in my limited experience [ only within the London market ] there are prime periods to advertise property [ for letting ]. ;- that is mid JAN to end MAY and mid SEPT to early NOV. Outside these periods when advertising availability there is much less interest along with lower rentals achieved.
Have started to tailor lease periods to co-incide with above.

It made me think too Graeme and I can certainly relate to all the stats.

I also agree with your analysis and used to try to time the end dates on AST's. Trouble is, you end up with them rolling onto Statutory Periodic Tenancies after the end date which takes you back to square one or having to renew contracts and re-protect the deposits. Instead my family brainstormed how we would attract tenants who wanted to stay long term and came up with a strategy which is working well.

Our strategy is well documented on my brothers website, please see >>> http://lettingagentsonline.co.uk/free-guide-to-finding-perfect-tenants/
