blueprint-house-keysTWO thirds of Europeans wishing to buy a house manage to do so in two months, a study by RE/MAX Europe has revealed.

Spaniards visit seven properties on average before making a choice, while 81% will conduct extensive searches online before setting foot outside the door.

The Portuguese are even faster and find the home they want in one month on average.

Meanwhile the Austrians and the Dutch take their time and tend to spend around half a year browsing suitable options.

Brits will visit a minimum of 10 houses before putting money down and just 45% of Europeans are fussy enough to visit more than 20.

The Finnish, however, are content seeing just four pads.
