House hunters choose modern living

9 April 2014

Research from Gocompare.com has revealed some interesting facts about house hunters. Potential owners in the UK are increasingly looking to take on property that is ready to move into.
Gocompare.com revealed that 81% of house hunters would be put off investing in a property if it needed considerable renovation. Instead they would prefer a property they can move into and start enjoying straight away without carrying out any work.
Remarkably the survey also suggested that 61% of house hunters prefer older style homes to new builds.
Ben Wilson from Gocompare.com home insurance commented: "While many people enjoy watching home make-over and renovation programmes on TV, our research suggests that most aren't that keen on undertaking their own 'grand design' or restoration project."
