What are property buyers looking for?

17th March 2017

When you put your property on the market, naturally you will be interested in how attractive it is to potential buyers. As a seller, it is important that your property appeals to as many as possible which is why we have taken the time to outline the attributes of a house that buyers tend to favour.

Whilst there are many elements within your property that you are perhaps unable to change, there are many factors that are within your power, such as decor and garden size, it is important to also be aware of those aspects of your home that could help to sell it.


Ensuring that your property is on the market for the correct value is crucial if you are looking for a speedy sale. It is unrealistic to assume that buyers will be willing to pay over the odds, so make sure you are fully educated before setting the asking price of your home by using our free online property valuation tool.

Added extras

Is your garden south-facing? Does your property have multiple bathrooms? Is there off-road parking? Potential buyers want to know about these features and are likely to be won-over by them if they are on the fence about your property. To ensure that your property is the one they choose, make sure you make the added features of your home a key element when marketing your property.

Desirable location

Whilst the property itself is important, the location it is situated within is absolutely crucial. Whether your home is located near excellent schools, within close distance of a town centre, in a quiet little side street or is even close to the beach - be sure to shout about it and show potential buyers exactly why they should choose your property.
