Survey reveals top buyer turn-offs
You’ll have a hard time selling a property saturated with cigarette smoke, near a busy road or one that is dirty, according to a recent survey that determined potential home buyers’ three major turn-offs.
A survey of 1,000 Australians by Aussie Home Loans has revealed what buyers look for in a property and what turns them off.
For 69.1 per cent of house hunters, cigarette smells ranked as the top turn-off, with the younger generation aged 25 to 34 finding it the most offensive (71.9 per cent).
This was followed by busy road locations (65.8 per cent), a dirty house (61.6 percent) and noisy neighbours (60.0 per cent).
