Homebuyers most swayed by kitchens

Friday, January 12, 2018

Buying a new home is not a decision to be taken lightly but recent research has shown that a new kitchen installation can seriously impact a potential buyer’s decision and their offer price.

According to a recent survey by home marketplace Zoopla almost half (47%) of home buyers are most influenced by a new kitchen.

More than a quarter (28%) of buyers would be prepared to pay more with a higher offer price as a result.

Closely behind a new kitchen installation is a new bathroom, which affects 46% of new home hunters’ decision to buy. 

Also, just over a quarter (27%) of those surveyed in the report  said a contemporary bathroom would warrant a higher price tag.

“Many buyers keep an eye out for particular renovations when searching for their next home. It goes without saying that costly renovations are high on the wish list for most buyers. These can add significant value to a property and incentivise buyers to offer a higher price.”
