What buyers will compromise on
A SURVEY from Move with Us reveals that buyers are most willing to compromise on the size of garden when looking for a new home. This was closely followed by a downstairs cloakroom.
Location came in third at 15.4%, followed by the availability of parking at 9.3% and the number of bedrooms at 2.7%.
The survey also found that the average number of homes a buyer looks round before buying has grown to between 11 and 15.
Robin King, Director at Move with Us, says: “It is likely that the rise in the number of viewings has grown as a result of the average move cycle increasing to every 20 years or so. People are moving less often now so they aren’t as willing to compromise.”
