Research has revealed that the majority of property buyers in 2017 are willing to pay more for a low carbon footprint home.

According to the findings 70% of prospective buyers this year want to purchase the most environmentally friendly house they can. The hardest hitting statistic is that 80% said they were willing to pay more for a home with a low carbon footprint.

Of the 3000-people questioned the majority said reducing energy bills was a very high priority on their check list when selecting a home. Most prospective buyers are very concerned about rising energy prices and wanted to do everything in their power to minimise this cost on an ongoing basis. Lower energy bills are now ranked surprisingly more important than location and land space. This simply would not have been the case a few years ago.

The survey showed house buyers wanted to see in the prospective new home:

1} Good roof insulation

2} Central heating boiler less than 5 years old

3} Double glazed windows

4} Draft proof doors

Homeowners need to take energy saving as a very important part of the future if they want to achieve a good sale price for their houses. Making the home more energy efficient doesn’t have to cost a fortune, some measures can even be installed free!

Many people still believe that their actions do not make a difference, but the statistics are showing that the UK has decreased net CO2 emissions considerably over the last 10 years.

A substantial proportion of the population in the UK would like to reduce their carbon footprint and at the same time save money but they think costs would be prohibitive.

A recent survey showed a massive 58% of households had no idea that some energy saving measure could be installed free of charge if they are receiving certain benefits.

Simple tip to save

The value of property in the UK is increasing every day and one of the ways to maximise this increase is to ensure your property is energy efficient. It’s a fact that an energy efficient house is worth thousands more than a home with little or no efficiency. Times are very hard for families on a budget as energy prices soar so saving money has become a major priority for most. With the ongoing Brexit talks and weak pound it is very unlikely to improve in the near future.

One of the biggest ways of saving money seems to be ignored by the majority of home owners and landlords alike. The majority of major energy suppliers offer large subsidies or grants to make our homes more energy efficient and in turn save you hundreds each year.

It’s a fact most homeowners simply just do not take advantage of the generous subsidies that are on offer. In some cases, the energy saving measure may even be free so it is worth checking to see if you qualify. Just think you could save money and have the work done for free!

Did you know in some cases if your current boiler is old and inefficient you may qualify to have a new one installed free? Recent figures would show the majority of homeowners had no idea this offer was an option to them, so take a little time to see if you could benefit.
