Nearly a quarter of home owners surveyed said they knew the property was right for them in 10 minutes or less.

People were found to take longer deliberating over buying a smartphone or a tablet than they were their home.

The decision to buy a smartphone took 46 minutes on average, while those who owned a tablet spent 36 minutes on average making their minds up, the survey of more than 2,000 people found.

We want a Labour MP for Cardiff North and a Labour government for the whole country.
