'Good condition' kitchens and bathrooms top homebuyers' wish lists

By KBBDaily on 11th October 2017 - 13:36pm

A recent survey by Better Bathrooms has found that 43% of UK adults place a kitchen in good condition at the top of their wish list when buying a new home, followed by “well-presented” bathrooms with 33% of the vote.

The survey – which questioned 2,000 UK adults – found that UK homebuyers are willing to increase their property-buying budget by an additional 14% for “rooms and fitted furnishings they want to keep, rather than replace”.

“It is clear that house hunters in 2017 are even more time-poor and are willing to exceed their budget in order to speed up the process of moving to a new property, with homes that are ready to move into exchanging hands for a higher premium,” said Better Bathrooms marketing head Lee Glenister.

“Rooms which are more expensive to fit out and decorate, such as kitchens and bathrooms, hold the highest priority for those looking for a new home, with a high percentage opting to buy a home that doesn’t require any major building work.”
