Selling a property in this economy is not an easy feat. What can you do to improve a property's value in order to drive the sale and make it more attractive to buyers? You may think a lot of the work needs
to be done on the aesthetics to get people interested in your property. The decluttering process begins, you start throwing out the things you no longer need or use to keep things neat and clean. Neutral paint
hits the walls, that wobbly floorboard finally gets fixed, and you bake fresh bread to fill the house with a pleasant aroma. However, did you know that there is more to selling a house than aesthetics? To truly
make a difference to the value of a property and its attractiveness to buyers, especially in this current economic climate, a major thing you want to think about is the energy efficiency of your property.
If you don't know what the
of your property is, now is the time to find out. This rating is a gauge as to how energy efficient your home is and news laws are making it a very important
thing to consider. The government plans to stipulate that all homes that are being sold or rented achieve an EPC rating of C or above. Evidently, if your property is below this rating, it's going
to be a lot less appealing to potential purchasers as they will be expecting higher bills when they move in, and the expenses involved in improving the energy efficiency. So, what can you do
improve your properties energy efficiency and therefore increase the value of your property and boost the success of your sale?
