Brexit is not a factor in most people’s decisions to sell or buy a home – but the costs and hassle of moving are holding them back.
Just 1.7% of buyers and 2.7% of sellers say that Brexit has put paid to their plans.
In comparison, 43% of sellers say they cannot afford to move and 33% are staying put because of the hassle of moving.
An independent survey of over 2,000 people conducted for Spicerhaart also found that only a small proportion (7%) are worried about future house prices going down.
