Almost 3 in 5 (57 per cent) of those surveyed listed loud or anti-social neighbours as the most likely reason for being put off a home purchase. Homebuyers in the East and North East of England are most put off by the thought of bad neighbours with 61 per cent of respondents claiming this as the leading detractor from a purchase. Londoner’s seem less fussed with just 52 per cent of potential buyers in the capital stating that noisy neighbours would be a key off-putting factor.
Security ranked very highly as an important factor in a property being considered as ‘prime’ with private gates and security cameras coming in above swimming pools, tennis courts and walk-in wardrobes as must-haves amongst potential buyers of ‘prime’ property.
