Congratulations!! You bought a house, or you sold one! There are many reasons we move homes in our lives and we do it a lot.
The Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) report from the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research is the result of three consecutive years’ survey covering 7,682 households and 19,914 individuals, with adult members of each household interviewed annually. The report shows that 25.3 per cent of the people who were interviewed in all three years had moved house at least once since their first interview in 2001.The overall average time spent at the current address is about ten years, but people between the ages of 20 and 35 stay in the same place for shorter periods than older people. The average length of time for a 25 to 34 year old to stay in one home is around four years, compared to approximately 20 years for those over the age of 65.The HILDA Survey shows that frequency of moving house is related mainly to income, age and whether children are part of the household.
Once you do move home you may need to hold your goods in a secure location for a period of time. Storage Facilities like Kennards Self Storage Wollongong aim to solve this part of the equation by providing spaces that can accommodate all sorts of things.
