This unique questionnaire asks you a series of questions about
your preferences and circumstances, and then suggests the property lifestyle that
may best fit your needs.
It may help you 'think outside the box' by suggesting creative ideas that hadn't occurred to you, or that
you hadn't given serious consideration until now.
The questionnaire is anonymous and you will be presented with the results instantly, after you have completed it.
For each of the following pairs of statements, indicate which is most true for you. If the right-hand statement is more true, click a radio button to the right. If the left-hand statement is more true, click a radio button towards the left. If they are both equally true (or neither are true) click a radio button near the middle.
