Damp, pests and botched DIY top list of turn-offs

UK homebuyers admit they would be turned off by signs of damp, pests and botched DIY when viewing potential properties to purchase, according to new research from Post Office Mortgages . Bad smells, mouldy/stained carpets and stone cladding were all also cited as major property turn-offs.

The research also revealed what is most likely to entice people to buy a property, with a new kitchen, new bathroom and just being clean and tidy making up the top three. The Post Office Mortgages study also cited original features, wooden floors and modern appliances as significant turn-ons for homebuyers.

Moving house can be a costly and stressful affair, so Post Office Mortgages is advising homebuyers to shop around in advance to secure a good deal on their mortgage. Whether potential UK homebuyers are looking for a first time buyer mortgage or are simply looking to remortgage, Post Office Mortgages reminds people that finding a mortgage deal that best meets their needs could at least take some of the stress out of moving home.

The Post Office offers a range of mortgages to meet the needs of homebuyers. These include fixed rate mortgages, tracker mortgages and Buy to Let products.
