Constantly browsing property websites, forgetting everything you love about your home – and beginning to hate the neighbours are among the top signs you need to move, a study has found.
A poll of 2,000 homeowners found more than one in three have itchy feet in their home and is currently looking to move due to outgrowing the property, or feeling it is too small.
Other tell-tale signs a move is imminent include ignoring DIY and maintenance jobs which need doing, continually complaining about your property and paying more attention to other people’s houses.
Slowing down every time you drive or walk past a ‘For Sale’ sign, spending more time outside your home than you do inside it and imagining how you would decorate a new property also made it on to the list.
The study commissioned by Keepmoat Homes also revealed the average homeowner begins to get ‘itchy feet’ in their home after nine years of living there.
