They say a change is as good as a holiday and, boy, does that saying hit differently these days.
I’ve lived in my ’hood for seven years and been in this job for four, but it takes the prospect of moving to a whole new city to really appreciate the place I’ve called home for the past decade.
As I grow out of my first home purchase, I also bid you a bitter-sweet, but mostly sweet, farewell as this week marks my final note as editor of Allhomes.
Moving house is one thing but moving home is another, and the home I’ve found here is the people that make up this brilliant business, Allhomes.
So for the last time, I’ve rounded up my top pick of properties on the market. Boot up the Allhomes app and browse through these new homes, which you can virtually inspect via agents offering pre-recorded video tours.
Wherever you are in your property journey, we hope these top picks spark some inspiration.
