Buying habits when it comes to the family home have changed dramatically in just a single generation.

Whereas our parents and grandparents might have moved once or twice in their lifetimes, these days we are continually on the move in search of that elusive perfect home.

Whether we’re searching for more space, more luxury, more money, better schools, better parks, better shopping, better neighbourhoods or neighbours, we always seem to be searching for and never quite finding, exactly what we’re looking for.

But were our parents and grandparents actually right in searching out a family home and staying put while their children and neighbourhoods grew up around them?
