Going Green: Buyers save 52% on energy bills

  With the cost of living on the rise, it comes as no surprise that we are trying to cut costs in as many places as possible.

For new-build buyers, energy efficiency is possibly more of a priority now, than ever before.  
However, many of us underestimate just how much we could save by going greener in the home.  
 
Interestingly, 69% of new-build buyers stated that EPC ratings are extremely or very important to them, and with more than 80% of new-build homes now holding an EPC rating of A or B, the choice is broad for new homeowners. * 
 
According to Zoopla, new-build homes can offer a huge 52% discount on running costs compared to older properties of equal or similar size. But when asked, 6 out of 10 people thought the savings would be much smaller, and a third thought you could only save 20% on your annual energy costs. * 
Looking to the future, homes built after 2025 will be guaranteed to produce 75-80% less carbon emissions than those built now. * 
 
Thinking about purchasing a new-build property, or curious to know how you can improve your property and add value at the same time?

*Zoopla surveyed 2,615. Respondents had either bought a home in the last 18 months or intend to buy one over the next 18 months.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
