House prices might be falling, but the cost of moving is rising

Selling your house: an expensive move in a failing market

Allegedly the cost of moving has almost tripled in the last decade, to an average of nearly £10,000, and it's likely to go up more. Who'd want to sell their house with prices going down and a massive cost to move as well? I'm a first time buyer desperately hoping to get on the property ladder next year and it just looks less and less like it's going to be possible.

    “Five years of rising moving costs…were seen by many in the industry as a contributing factor to the post-credit crunch slump.”

    Right lads, pack-up the website; we were wrong all this time. I’m going to snap-up the domain name http://www.removalcostscrash.co.uk

    Please wise up. There is no such thing as a housing ladder anymore. Focus on life aims and wherever they will take you. Forget a declining nation which offers little but takes far too much.

  • dont worry mazaru, soon when interest rates go up a lot of sellers will have their removal costs subsidised by the repo agent
