Weird World: Research reveals that guests take 38 seconds to judge a house

Guests take an average of 38 seconds to judge a person’s house.

A new study has revealed the ten things people judge when it comes to the home, with smell being the first thing noticed by newcomers. Other common criteria include the temperature, whether the house has been vacuumed and if the washing up has been done or not.

The list includes ten key factors to consider when cleaning your home. Here are the major areas visitors are likely to judge your home on when they pay you a visit:

1. The smell

2. The temperature

3. Whether or not the house have been vacuumed

4. How comfortable the furniture is

5. If the washing up is done or not

6. Dirty windows

7. The books they own

8. How well kept the furniture is

9. Colour of the walls

10. If the ornaments are dusty

The study, carried out by the Independent Network, revealed that 86 percent of people give the house a ‘major’ clean before anyone arrives.

A spokesman for the Independent Network said: “Inevitably we do form opinions when we are welcomed into other people’s homes – people are naturally inquisitive.”

According to the Daily Mail, “of all the areas in a house, it’s the living room, which most judgement is reserved for.

A spokesman for the Independent Network said: ‘Our homes are of course very personal to us and in many ways are a representation of our style.

‘So there is a sense when we have visitors over that we are leaving ourselves open to criticism and judgement.

‘But people shouldn’t be apprehensive about what others may or may not think – ultimately it’s the opinion of the homeowners themselves which is most important.’ ”
