Better EPCs mean bigger sale prices, according to Rightmove

Rightmove says sellers who have upgraded their Energy Performance Certificate rating to a C - from a D, E or F - get up to 16% more on their sale price.

The study analysed over 200,000 homes listed on Rightmove that had sold twice, with an improved EPC rating the second time.

Those who had upgraded their rating from an F to a C are adding an average of 16% to the price achieved for their home.

Based on the current average asking price of £344,445, this could mean an additional £55,111 for someone moving from an F to a C rating.
