Granville Developments discuss the benefits of moving out of London

According to BBC News, more than 550,000 people have moved out of London over the past decade. Living in London no longer has the appeal it once had to young families looking to settle down. As a result, many are now looking to move away from the inner city to a more rural way of life. But leaving London doesn’t necessarily mean leaving the city life. In fact, there are plenty of new housing developments across the UK that offer the perfect work-life balance without the stresses of the city. With this in mind, new build property developer, Granville, discuss the top three benefits of moving out of London.

Your Money Will Go Further

Property prices in the city are usually one of the main reasons for leaving London. The average house cost in London is more than double that of the rest of the UK.

By moving to a new housing development in Essex or Suffolk, you can enjoy the sanctuary of the countryside with affordable, high quality properties and the convenience of the city being only a short train journey away.

Families Will Benefit

While prices are usually the catalyst for leaving the city, Londoners also find the lack of space is a reason to leave the big smoke. Families are able to afford more spacious houses outside of London. What’s more, these residential property developments are usually located in statistically safer areas with quality school districts.

Improved Quality of Life

Many move to London for the rich culture, diversity and the sheer buzz of living in the city. But this isn’t for everyone and often, people can quickly miss the lack of green spaces and grow tired of the expensive prices, the crowded commutes and the impersonal side of living in such a populated area.

By moving to a new build development outside of London, families quickly discover an improved quality of life. From lower crime rates to a lack of pollution, moving out of London can be extremely appealing.

Granville have been creating communities outside of London for over 40 years, specialising in the creation of new build homes in Suffolk and Essex to provide a fresh start outside of the capital.
