Buying a property is a challenging yet rewarding experience. Many people even get emotional when hunting for their dream home.

In Australia, homebuyers and investors differ in their preference for a property to live in or to consider as an investment that they can improve and rent out or resell. An important thing to keep in mind is to take the time to look at every aspect of a property including existing problems it may have.

For some buyers, the master bedroom and bathrooms may be top priority while for others, the kitchen and living room may be the parts of the home they first look at.

A survey by has revealed the top 10 property features that buyers in the states of Victoria and New South Wales (NSW) value the most. Survey findings showed a big difference in the parts of the home that they prioritise.

Buyers in NSW put top priority to a second toilet (21.1 percent) which ranks fourth among those in Victoria.
