Happiness is ... a place of your own.

THE arrival of some much needed sunshine across the region will doubtlessly lift spirits, but if you're a homeowner you're already happier than if you were renting, according a recent national survey.

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) discovered that those that were married, had jobs and owned their own home were most likely to be satisfied with their lives.

Steve McElroy, sales director for Miller Homes Yorkshire, said: "A few rays of sunshine does wonders to lift the spiSS rits and spurs us on to achieving some of our dreams and goals. "One dream is often moving home or purchasing for the first time so that you and your family have somewhere to call home and enjoy the delights of our English summer in your own garden. And Miller Homes can help you achieve that."

The survey, which was commissioned to ascertain the satisfaction of UK residents, found that approximately 80 per cent of people who owned their own home reported a medium/high level of satisfaction whilst the figure was only 68 per cent for those who rented.

Steve said: "It is more achievable than it has been for a while to own your own home and a large deposit is not always required.

"Miller Homes works hard to ensure its properties are available to a wide range of people supported by a variety of home types and also purchase incentives to help purchasers whether they are buying for the first time, looking for somewhere larger to facilitate a growing family or indeed downsizing after they have flown the nest."

Miller Homes has twelve developments located across the region and has a range of properties from one bedroom apartments to five bedroom executive, family homes, priced from pounds 59,995 to pounds 320,000.

Buyers who are looking to take a first step on to the property ladder can explore the possibilities that NewBuy, FirstBuy and MiWay offer, say Miler Homes. Current homeowners with a property to sell could benefit from Miller Homes' unique Home Exchange scheme. Other initiatives are also available.
