For what it's worth
The number of people moving house has fallen this year by 10 per cent, with August producing the lowest figures since February 1993. In the first eight months of 1995 there were just 786,000 transactions compared with 868,000 up to the end of August 1994. With autumn once again failing to provide a seasonal boost, the pattern looks set to continue until the end of the year. That would leave annual house moves at less than 1.2 million compared with around 1.6 million in the early 1980s.
A run of successful TV series and movies has allowed the actor Sean Bean to leave his double-fronted Edwardian house in Muswell Hill, north London, for a period property with a big garden a few miles out in Totteridge.Reuse content
