POTENTIAL homebuyers are failing to check out properties that could be suitable for them simply because they are spoiled for choice.

The property market is so overloaded with options that Sydney buyers have around 28,300 properties to choose from — an increase of 22.5 per cent over the past 12 months, according to CoreLogic data.

But property experts are warning that it could be costing people their dream home with people overlooking a property they see online without checking out important factors like the location, the feel of the property or nearby amenities that can only be gained by a personal viewing.
