Children even today find it very hard to sell the family home. Even if they have moved out and are living with their new families elsewhere, they often try and stop their parents selling the family home. They don’t want to lose connection to the original home.
Children’s bedrooms are sacred space; often with “Do Not Enter” signs on the doors. They are areas of safety and privacy.
Let’s not underestimate neighbourhoods of owner occupiers, all maintaining and improving their properties and looking out for each other. Conversations on the front lawns or over the fence with your neighbours.
Housing should be looked at by the value it brings to people’s lives rather than its pure economic value.
