Fast-Buying Brits

Research reveals that Brits from the South West take just 23 hours to decide on offers on a house purchase.


Research commissioned by HSBC reveals Brits from the South West take just 23 hours to make a decision on making an offer on a house purchase which is six hours fewer than when they are organising what to wear and where to go for a date.

One in seven (14 per cent) choose to put an offer on a house in less than two minutes when inspecting a property, whereas only one per cent could select what to wear on a date in this time frame.

Tracie Pearce, head of mortgages at HSBC, commented: “You’d expect UK house hunters to spend more time to make an offer on a house than deciding on a pair of shoes or what to make at a dinner party but it’s a sign of the times that people are making house decisions quickly to buy their dream home.

She continued: “Getting a mortgage approved in less than 24 hours with our Mortgage in a Day service can make all the difference in helping house hunters achieve their goals more quickly, leaving more time for them to get on with the rest of their lives.”
