We know many people are looking to move home in 2022, and if you are, there is a lot you need to think about. The leading priority is likely to be finding a suitable place you can afford, but you also need to think about other factors.
If you intend on getting around a lot, you need to think of transport hubs and connections. If you have a young family, you need to give serious thought to the standard and availability of local schools.
However, you should also think about finding a nice place to live.
More and more people are keen to find a home where they feel settled and relaxed. At Austin Property Services, we cover a lot of local housing markets.

There is demand for Dorchester property
It is fair to say there are many reasons for this price increase when it comes to homes, but the demand for property is a crucial factor.
