Le Dejeuner, François Boucher, 1739

"Well-appointed": fact or flannel?

"Well-appointed" is a popular phrase amongst estate agents when describing a house, but does it really mean anything? Home-properties.co.uk decided to find out!

Because we extract the features from property descriptions to create the filters you see on the left of every page, we can count the number of features a property has, and use this to compare "well-appointed" properties with ones that are not so described.

What we found is that at every price point the "well-appointed" properties did have more features than their non-well-appointed equivalents. In fact, "well-appointed" properties had on average 33% more features.

The results for properties priced between £100,000 and £1,000,000 are shown below:

0 5 10 15 20 100,000 200,000 300,000 400,000 500,000 600,000 700,000 800,000 900,000 1,000,000 Features Price (£) Not well-appointed Well-appointed
