Energy efficient homes boost price of property

Homes sold with an EPC rating of A or B achieved a 10% price premium compared to properties with an EPC energy efficient rating of D over the past year.

One in every 12 properties sold achieved an energy efficiency rating of A or B on its EPC, whilst 47% of properties had a rating of D.

Just 6% of re-sale properties sold achieved the A or B rating, however, 60% of properties have the potential, with improvements to hit A or B. Therefore, it might be worth considering investing in your property now so that you can benefit from the rewards when you sell.

So boosting your homes EPC rating may well keep you warm this winter and help boost your sale price.
