Shining a light on energy-efficient homes

Gill - Head Gillian Bell Apr 9, 2024, 10:30 AM

Buyers are increasingly looking for more energy-efficient homes, with 39% of survey respondents noticing greater interest from buyers, an increase from 34% when the same question was asked last year.

43% stated that sellers were looking to attach a premium to homes that are more energy efficient and 37% said that higher energy-efficient homes were holding their value in the current market.

Upgrading insulation, installing energy-efficient heating systems, and incorporating renewable energy sources like solar panels are increasingly popular.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has launched a new Residential Retrofit Standard in response to demand for high-quality retrofit advice due to high energy prices and government net-zero targets. Source: #Dataloft, RICS Residential Property Monitor January 2024
