City living has long been linked to stress and anxiety, and a recent survey by home buying company We Buy Any Home has found that London is the third most stressful city to buy or sell a home.

The survey asked 1,000 UK homeowners which life experiences they’ve found themost stressful. Buying a house came out on top, even over important events such as organising a wedding or having a child…

Top five most stressful life events

  1. Buying/selling a house
  2. Taking the driving test
  3. Starting a new job
  4. Organising a wedding
  5. Having a child

The UK’s stressful house buying/selling hotspots

  1. Norwich
  2. Bristol
  3. London
  4. Birmingham
  5. Nottingham
  6. Sheffield
  7. Newcastle
  8. Plymouth
  9. Southampton
  10. Belfast

So what makes the home buying process so stressful? The amount of professional services people have to deal with during house sale negotiations and how long the wait takes until completion seem to be the main issues.
