Which room is more likely to sell your home?
We are often told that bathrooms and kitchen are what sell a home, but an online study involving over 1,000 house hunters in the UK has revealed that buyers spend more time looking at the lounge than any other room. (Ref. HouseSimple.com.)
Perhaps the biggest surprise from the study was that no matter the size of the home, the outside area in a property – whether that’s a front garden, back garden or patio – is a generally bigger deal breaker than the bathroom.
Alex Gosling, CEO of HouseSimple.com, said:
“This study shows that the living room is the best place to start. When selling your home online, we recommend making this room the focal point of your listing, with plenty of photographs that reflect a warm, homely feel.
“We know that house hunters spend around 20 seconds looking at property listings with photographs. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s better than the two seconds they spend looking at ones without images.
