Energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important for home buyers, survey reveals
A house’s energy efficiency rating is becoming an increasingly important factor when deciding to purchase a new home, a new survey by Populus has found.
More than one in three – 36 per cent – said a poor energy efficiency score would lead them to cut thousands of pounds from their offer price, while a further 23 per cent said they would reduce their offer by a few hundred pounds. Another 16 per cent said a low rating would lead them to withdraw the offer entirely.
Additionally, three-quarters of respondents said a poor energy efficiency rating would lead them to either reduce their offer price or withdraw from the sale.
The survey found that energy efficiency ratings would have more effect on respondents’ offers than a poor or unreliable mobile phone signal, a property severely in need of cleaning and bad taste or out of date kitchens or bathrooms.
