Garden size is the favoured compromise for home buyers
According to a brand new survey, potential homebuyers are most willing to compromise on the size of their garden when looking for a new home.
The survey was conducted among over 120 independent estate agents from the Move with Us Partner Network and the poll found that 60% of estate agents noted that the size of a property’s garden was the first thing to be forfeited when buyers were purchasing a new home.
Number of bedrooms was next on the list, with 14% of agents highlighting that potential homeowners are willing to sacrifice this in order to secure the right property. A modern kitchen came in third place at 9%.
When asked what buyers are more interested in in a modern market, good transport links topped the list at 48%. This was followed by a fast internet connection at 25% and a strong mobile signal at 5%.
Simon King, Managing Director of the Move with Us Partner Network commented:“Your local Move with Us accredited estate agent will be able to help you understand what you can afford in their chosen area. The perfect home rarely exists so it is important to prioritise your ‘must haves’ and their ‘maybes’. Ultimately, having a set plan and clear criteria can save you time and money in the long run.”
