The UK Housing Market: Boys Vs. Girls
04 Nov 2011
If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, how do they ever buy property together without falling out? Well according to a recent survey conducted by Home Sale Network amongst its Network members– quite amicably actually!
Survey results found that the UK property market is a shining example of gender equality with men and women sharing an equal knowledge of current housing market conditions. As a national network of specially selected, independent estate agents, of which Peter Heron Residential Sales and Lettings is a member, Home Sale Network agents are ideally positioned to give insight into how men and women typically approach the buying and selling process.
Over half of Network members who took part in the survey indicated that men and women both show a similar level of awareness when it came to knowing current property prices and market availability. In fact, nearly a third of members also reported that men and women were equally willing to sacrifice property preferences given the current economic conditions.
So if you’re thinking of buying or selling with your other half this winter, it should be a (relatively) harmonious experience!
