Property for sale in Birmingham city centre 'more likely to appeal to men'

Property for sale in Birmingham city centre 'more likely to appeal to men'

Living closer to the city centre is likely to be more important for men seeking property for sale in Birmingham than it is for women.

Young male home buyers rate living close to the city centre and being close to transport links more highly than young women do, according to research by the Post Office.

In fact, location appears more important to men than the quality of the property, with a higher proportion of women likely to pay attention to a home's architectural qualities than men.

The survey suggests that estate agents in Birmingham are more likely to receive questions about whether a property has an outdoor space or original features from women than men.

Women are also more concerned about the security of a particular area compared to the opposite sex.

Post Office head of mortgages Mike Cook noted: "Female first time buyers are happy to compromise on the more superficial aspects of property ownership because they see buying a home as a financial investment in their future."ADNFCR-1222-ID-800598940-ADNFCR
