Sample Answer 1
I’m writing to let you know that we’ve finally moved to a bigger house! We just couldn’t go on living in the two-bedroom bungalow now that the twins were growing up and the new baby had arrived. So we started looking – and one thing led to another, and finally, we’re in our new home.
I’m sure you’ll like it. We have three bedrooms now and a very modern bathroom and kitchen. The kids are happy because there is more space with the big living room and the garden outside. But John is the happiest because he doesn’t need to do much decorating.
Why don’t you come to see what you think of our new place this weekend? We would all love to see you. If the weather is favourable, we can even have a barbecue in the garden.
Our new address and phone number are below, so give us a call and inform us when to expect you.
With lots of love,

I haven’t heard from you in a while, and I hope that you are doing well in your life. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve moved to a new house. And I’ve moved to a new house because I felt suffocated in my old house due to the many high-rise buildings erected around it, essentially covering it from all directions.
I think I’ve moved to a lovely house because there are plenty of empty spaces around it. Besides, my new house is more significant than the previous one, and it has such a great structure that it receives enough natural light and air from all directions as long as they are available. However, the best thing about my new house is that it is close enough to the shopping centres and public transportation facilities, and yet far enough at the same time from the noises of a busy city.
Anyway, I think you’ll like my new house, so come and visit me sometime!

I hope you are doing great. I’m still relishing our pleasant memories together during our last trip – it was wonderful. I’m writing to let you know that we have moved into a house in Bath, a town set in the rolling countryside of southwest England. I hope you will visit us soon.
As you know, my previous apartment was far away from my office and it was inconvenient for both Anna and me to commute a long distance daily. However, considering Julie’s school location, we could not shift our house. This summer I transferred her to Kingswood School in Bath and moved here soon after. Now the daily commute is no longer a cause of concern for us.
We moved into this house at the beginning of February, and we like it. A small garden at the front makes it even more beautiful. We now have enough space to park 3 cars! It has five rooms, a lawn and two large balconies. The best part is that the area is quiet and surrounded by astonishing natural beauty. After living in a flat in a busy area for nearly 8 years, a spacious house seems like a dream come true.
I hope you will visit us soon as I look forward to having you and Linda with us for a few days. It will be fun.
Hope to meet you soon.

I know it would come to you as a surprise, but I have finally moved to a new house after living in my previous house for such a long time. Of course, it was not an easy decision for me, given how much I loved that house because of its proximity to a beautiful lake and animal sanctuary. Still, I needed to move out of it because its owner wanted to renovate it and then sell it to some corporate businesspeople at a very handsome profit.
Of course, the new house I moved in is a great place because it is much more spacious than my last one. Besides, the new house is built with some solid wood, which I like, because it would help the house keep at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. So, it would mean that I would have to spend a lot less money on the electricity bill to maintain a comfortable temperature at my house, unlike the old one. Besides, it is in a nice neighbourhood also.
So, come and visit me sometime, possibly next weekend, because I think you would also like my new house.
