Top 10 reasons for walking away

Share  

Estate Agent today states the top ten reasons for walking away from a property:

  1. Noisy neighbours – 47% 
  2. Loud area – 45% 
  3. By a main road – 44% 
  4. Thin internal walls – 43% 
  5. Near an airport – 41% 
  6. Hard to park nearby – 40% 
  7. Lack of storage options – 38% 
  8. Ceilings being too low – 35% 
  9. Steep stairs – 34% 
  10. Poor Wifi – 33% 

Picky buyers are walking away from property deals after realising the internet connection at a property is poor, research claims.

A poll by broker First Mortgage has uncovered the main reasons why a buyer may reject a property purchase, with 80 per cent of Brits admitting they are picky.

The most popular reason for walking away among half of respondents was noisy neighbours or living in a loud area.

A quarter said they would snub a deal if floorboards creak, while 43 per cent wouldn’t be interested if they found the walls were too thin.

A third would be put off by issues such as dogs barking in the area and 22 per cent would be deterred by trees hanging into the garden.

When looking for a home, it is important to envisage what it is like to live there 365 days a year, if a dog in the neighbourhood is barking nonstop every day, this could become an issue. A property is likely to be the most expensive single purchase you ever make, being picky is essential.
