It is perhaps no surprise that the biggest concern those surveyed raised in relation to selling their homes was not achieving the price they wanted. I find some of the other concerns listed in this recent eMoov survey more interesting..... 46% of people were worried about the stress of selling - far more than those worried about the cost of selling.

This must give hope to solicitors and other professionals like Hedges who pride themselves on the quality of support that they offer to clients who are moving home rather than just aiming to be the cheapest conveyancers (or estate agents) on the market. 

We are finding more and more clients come to us because of a bad experience with an internet based conveyancing company and above all else they want to be assured of the personal touch; that someone who really cares will be looking after them. The results of this survey help explain why - moving house is hard enough as it is - don't make it worse by surrounding yourself with a group of "professionals" you don't really trust to support you!
