Australians Move House More Often

According the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ quarterly social trends report released yesterday, people are moving house more often.

The figures painted the portrait of an increasingly mobile population across Australia with the desire for a bigger or better home, or a recent dwelling purchase, generally the most common reasons for moving.

Every second married couple with children had moved in the five years to 2007-08 and young people with no children were the most likely to find a new home (90 per cent) citing forming new relationships, as the reason for making a move.

45 per cent of families with dependent children moved within a five-year period compared to 17 per cent of older households without children.

For the small proportion of people who had a desire to move in the next 12 months, but considered it unlikely to happen, financial reasons were the most commonly reported barrier.

If you want to move, use the most reputable Removals Company Robinsons International, for reliable quality service.
