Get­ting to and from work quickly is the biggest in­flu­ence on Bri­tish home buy­ers. New re­search from re­al­ly­mov­ing.com saw 58 per cent of those sur­veyed cit­ing ease of get­ting to and from their work­place as the most im­por­tant in­flu­ence in choos­ing the lo­ca­tion for their new home.

Rose­mary Rogers, di­rec­tor of re­al­ly­mov­ing.com, says: “While we have spent the last decade suf­fer­ing a long daily com­mute for the chance of rest and re­lax­ation at the week­ends, now, as the knock-on ef­fects of the re­ces­sion hit, Bri­tons are work­ing harder than ever and mov­ing closer to the work­place.”
