Biggest turn-offs for potential purchasers


If you’ve had your house on the market for a long time without any sensible offers it could be that you’ve become blind to some of the biggest turn-offs for potential purchasers. When asked by The Guardian to provide the current top turn-offs, industry experts cited the following: dirty kitchens and bathrooms, bad smells, traffic noise, strange looking plants in the garden (some lenders are refusing to give mortgages on properties if the invasive Japanese Knotweed is present), clutter, coloured bathroom suites, cats, a recent death in the house and sellers showing you round.  So, next time you get a viewing, tidy up, clean up, spray some room freshener, pack your cat in the car and go for a drive around the block!
