If you are looking to make a move in 2022, it is likely you are weighing up your options. There is a lot to consider when moving home.
You will need to consider your budget, and what homes you can afford. It is likely you will need to consider options such as transport, and if you have a family, what schools are on offer.
However, at Austin Property Services, we believe it is vital to find a place where you are happy. You want to feel settled, and we feel confident in saying Weymouth is a nice place to live.
What does Weymouth have to offer?
One great aspect about life in Weymouth is that crime levels are below the national average. There have been various studies which suggest locals are very confident about safety levels, and this should always be a positive element.
We also think the lifestyle is very pleasant in Weymouth. The climate appeals to many people, and being located so close to the sea brings a range of benefits. While some people view areas like Dorset as ideal if you are looking to downsize or take things easy in life, we find more and more families are looking for a more sedate pace of life.
The last few years have been highly challenging, so enjoying the place where you live is a great feature to come home to every day.

Property prices have risen in Weymouth over the past year
The fact that house prices have risen in Weymouth in the past year shouldn’t be a surprise, as this has been the case for most of the country.
While there are many reasons why house prices have risen in this time, demand is continuing to outstrip supply, and this shapes the property market.
