Unsupervised by their parents two children went on a roam around a property in London before revealing the good, the bad and how much they think the house is worth.
The innocence of the children brought about funny comments from ‘I can see next door neighbour’s underpants’ to ‘Look at this. This is a great hiding place no one will find me here.’
However it seems there were some similarities in what the family of four looked for such as a good room size, the views from the loft conversion bedroom and a big enough garden for the kids - but whether a trampoline or goal posts went in would be another matter.
Children proved to be inquisitive asking whether certain furniture came with the house too.
When it came to how much they thought it would cost, the youngest child, a boy, valued the property at £2,000 while his sister guessed £3m.
Meanwhile mum put a price tag of £750,000 while dad predicted £1.8m. The actual cost of the house was £2.4m.
According to a new study, first time buyers in London spend £68k on rent before buying their first home.
Recent data revealed by getwestlondon also showed the gap between house prices and wages gets bigger in west London , and the cost of raising a child to the age of 21 has spiraled to £250k.
Watch to find out what else the two young buyers had to say, questions they would ask and their verdict, along with their parents.
The experiment was conducted after finding 84% of parents don’t consult with their children at all during the house hunting process.
Daniel Killick, from the Kew branch of Chestertons, said: “Though there were a fair few wild moments, which could have made mum and dad wince, the children actually came to similar conclusions as their parents on many points.
“They just had their own way of working things out. It was refreshing to have such an unusual and honest assessment from property viewers who pulled no punches when it came to saying what they did and didn’t like about the house!
“Kids have to go through all the upheaval of moving home and settling in somewhere new too, so it’s great to get them involved from the word go provided they are old enough to comprehend what’s going on and won’t get upset by the idea of such a big change.
“In our little experiment the children actually picked up on some really interesting things, as well as having lots of fun and provoking plenty of giggles with some of their comments and questions!”
