Top 10 things that may put people off when buying your property

  1. Bad kerb appeal. Some potential buyers may not even consider looking further.
  2. A badly presented exterior can devalue a property by 20%.
  3. Outdated bathrooms and kitchens.
  4. Poor EPC. A badly energy efficient house indicates more expense to the buyer. 
  5. Unique decoration. Bright bold colours, dated wallpaper, murals  and carpets. Not everyone has the same taste.
  6. Clutter. Very easy to rectify and potentially boost the value by up yo £10,000 according to Bark.com
  7. Pets. Not everyone loves them. Even though 45% of people own pets in the UK, potential buyers can easily be put off.
  8. Lack of planning permission and building regulations. Can obviously cause mortgage issues.
  9. Lack of parking
  10. Believe it or not swimming pools!-they can be expensive run and maintain.
