Sammy and Matt are both enjoying life in the suburbs. Matt works from home, while Sammy’s office is just a short walk away
They’re not the only ones making the most of their work-life balance. Government figures show people are spending less and less time travelling to work and are enjoying their leisure time more than ever. Commuting times have been falling for the past 20 years, with the average travel time now just 31 minutes in each direction.
Looking to the future
One of the problems with renting is you’re not going to see any return on the cash you pay out each month. Now they have their own home, Sammy and Matt can look forward to the likelihood of its value rising over the next few years, which will give them a return on their investment. Home.co.uk reveals there’s been an 8% rise in Colton house prices over the past ten years.
Now they’ve been in their home for a while, Sammy and Matt are always looking for new ways to customise their home and garden. This is something they wouldn’t have been able to do when they lived in Leeds city centre where space was at a premium. With more room than ever, and the freedom to really making it theirs, there’s plenty to look forward to as they continue to grow into their home.
