Viewing to Purchase Ratio

published on 17/02/2017  

Home buyers typically view between three and six properties before making an offer on the home they want, research shows.

A poll by agent Your Move of 5,000 home owners found that 41% of buyers viewed six or more properties before buying their most recent home and that 80% viewed more than three properties.

Buyers in the south-east seem to need the most choice, with 51% viewing six or more, closely followed by 48% of buyers in the south-west.

In contrast, in the north-west, just 30% of buyers were likely to view six or more and buyers in Wales were most likely to buy the first property they saw.
