WHY MOVE?

WHY MOVE?

Save yourself the hassle and stay put in your house this year with Spencer Properties.

 

Moving house can be exhausting and not to mention exceedingly stressful. Why not give yourself one less thing to worry about this year and stay put in your home?

Don’t let things get on top of you, whether this is a career change for our professionals or worrying about a whole new year of university for our students. Tick this off your to do list and keep things easy and simple.

As a Leeds private landlord and letting agent, we strive to ensure moving in and out of our properties doesn’t become a challenging and difficult task.  We aim to keep this hassle free, no matter what move you make with us. However we would like to guarantee you know ALL the benefits of actually staying in your home for another year with us.

For instance, wouldn’t it be nice to have one less distraction this year?

Don’t allow distractions to have an impact on your academic success. Stay where you are and avoid the stress of making things harder to succeed at work or University. Although we don’t think setting up your utilities or figuring out a new bus route is going to make you fail your studies or seriously impact your abilities at work. Nevertheless a number of distractions when added up can have an overall displeasing impact.

Consequently we think it could be at your best interest to stay where you are. I’m sure your blood pressure will thank you later.

Just think, no need to pack up all your stuff and cram it all into a couple of suitcases. You can avoid that gut feeling of thinking you’ve left something behind. 

Moving your stuff from one place to another can be a real ball ache! This is one of the reasons why changing homes can be so tense.

If the struggle wasn’t hard enough the first time, you can only imagine the harder it will be for a second time round. A year has passed and guess what, you have accumulated another years’ worth of books, furniture, accessories, clothes, bags, shoes etc. All of which you will need to drag somehow across the city to your new home. You may think having a car will make things easier but don’t be fooled, over the changeover period all roads are hectic with parents, newcomers and more trying to get to their new homes. A 5 minute journey suddenly becomes a 30 minute stop and start.

Whilst you have decided to stay in your home, you could be sat back at home with your cup of tea feeling stress free.

Avoid all logistical financial stresses

The bills have been split and you are all paying your fair share. No need to find a new provider, figure out the best deal and argue over who’s paying what. You are able to relax with your friends, continue with your studies and put your mind at ease that all bills are being paid on time, and most importantly equally between you and your housemates. 

Feeling comfortable with your housemates.

We’d like to point out the fact that you have found people you can live with, under the assumption that you get along with your housemates and have adapted to each other’s living standards successfully.

It isn’t always easy living with friends, sometimes your living values do not work well alongside one another and this can cause arguments and confrontations within your friendship group. Stay put and cherish the friendly division in chores that you have come up with together. No one wants to be stood ogling over a sink full of dirty washing, knowing that not one of their housemates is going to offer a helping hand.

It can be easy to take for granted your peaceful, easy going cohabitation after settling under one roof and living together for some time. Please don’t be fooled into thinking this is the case every time.

Knowing your surroundings

Leeds is a wide-ranging city to live in. We therefore want to stress the importance of being familiar with the area you live in.

Simple things such as transport links and general knowledge of how to get from one place to another. These things are easily taken for granted until suddenly your struggling to find where you need to be.

Although we don’t doubt that change is good and can improve your knowledge of Leeds and its surrounding areas. However we would just like to minimise all aspects of stress and promote the positive features of staying in your already lived in cosy home.
