Price and Location Key

In the results of the Buyer Survey, Price and location emerged as the two most important factors to potential property buyers. Over 60% of people stated that they did not want to be more then 45 minutes journey time from their place of work. Proximity to schools, shops and other amenities were also important. Most purchasers do not appear to be as keenly interested in the type of property they choose (be it new or second-hand), the orientation, the garden size or its eco-credentials. Instead they seem open to a range of different property types provided that both the location and the price are right for them and for the needs of their family.
