Home Features That Spark Bickering Among Couples

January 8, 2020

Couples can bicker when trying to decide on a home to purchase. A certain level of compromise is usually required in finding the right one. As a real estate pro, you may find yourself a mediator to these disputes.

Nearly one in four homeowners say their current home does not have all the features their partner considered important, according to a survey of more than 980 homeowners conducted by Porch.com, a home remodeling website.

So what features inspire the most spats during a house hunt? Wood-burning fireplaces, in-ground pools, and hardwood flooring, according to the survey. For example, with a pool, couples may not see eye-to-eye whether the maintenance costs and upkeep is worth the hassle of having one, the study notes.

“Not all features are bound to cause a struggle though,” Porch.com’s study notes. “Couples were often quick to agree on energy-efficient appliances, newly renovated bedrooms, and freshly upgraded bathrooms.”
