A new survey by Sell House Fast has uncovered the biggest turn-offs for Brits when househunting, including worn out kitchen cupboards, dirty appliances and faulty bathroom fixtures.

More than 70% of the 1,266 Brits surveyed said they are “dissatisfied” when they find bathroom fixtures such as toilets and taps are not functioning properly, for example low water pressure or the toilet flush not working.

More than half said heavily damaged or worn out kitchen cabinets “hinders the prospects of a property”, while 49% said they are “unimpressed” when they see extensive mould in the bathroom. Close to three quarters of estate agents recommended “thoroughly cleaning” household appliances like ovens and fridges before conducting property viewings, Sell House Fast noted.

Other turn-offs for househunters include extensive cracks, marks and stains on walls, ceilings and floors; exposed wires; broken and missing handles on doors and cabinets; damaged, stained or torn carpets; and damaged, broken or uneven flooring.
