Top 10 reasons a buyer will walk away
When it comes to purchasing a property, eight in ten Brits admit to being ‘picky buyers’, with research showing that a poor Wi-Fi connection is enough to put a third off a new home.
Other contributing factors can include having noisy neighbours, creaky floorboards and thin walls.
Of those surveyed, 22% would be deterred by an unruly garden with overhanging branches, with a third agreeing that dogs barking in the area would be a deal breaker.
If you’re looking to sell your property in the near future, it’s a good idea to determine what elements inside and outside could be picked up on by prospective viewers.
Where able, you should also complete any outstanding DIY jobs or renovations, as this will help you to secure a better offer in a shorter time frame.
Top 10 reasons for a buyer walking away from a deal:
Noisy neighbours – 47%
Loud area – 45%
By a main road – 44%
