House hunters in Wales take just 27 minutes on average making their mind up to buy a property, a survey has found.

The research, from property website Zoopla, found the typical decision to buy a home when viewing it in person takes 27 minutes - around the same length of time as an episode of Coronation Street.

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.
