Keen to sell your house? If so, it might be time to redecorate. Research by the property website NeedaProperty.com has discovered the top decoration turn-offs for potential buyers – and perhaps unsurprisingly, the scourge that is woodchip wallpaper has come top. But baby-boomers take heed: nude portraits, satin bedsheets and mirrored ceilings are likely to stymie an offer. The study suggests they're even less appealing than avocado bathroom suites. It also seems the hipster love of taxidermy has not spread nationwide – stuffed dead animals are major turn-offs.
Have you ever been put off buying a house? If so, why? Did it rival any of the candidates on the blog Terrible Real Estate Photographs? Or did you have a house, which, like this beauty, just wouldn't sell?
