Why did you choose your home?
From an article in the Daily Mail.
Research by conveyancer My Home Move found that 56 per cent of buyers make their final decision based on whether they have fallen in love with the property.
Respondents were asked to select up to three reasons why they choose a property.
- 58% cent fell in love with their home due to its location
- 37 per cent due to its price
- 29% due to the garden
- 15% for the interior
Location, Location, Price
What often makes people choose one property other than another. This something people don’t even acknowledge themselves – and that’s aspiration. Doug Crawford, chief executive of My Home Move, said: Britain’s love affair with property is built on location. For most people, location is the secret ingredient that makes them fall in or out of love with their home. Brits also love a bargain, which explains why cost was the second most important factor in making someone fall in love with their home. As house prices continue to climb and many first-time buyers struggle to take their first step onto the property ladder, younger buyers are more willing to scout out up-and-coming areas to try and find a bargain to fall in love with.
