Survey Says 83% of Active Homebuyers are Looking to Invest in Eco Friendly Homes

A study released by Ovo Energy has revealed 83% of active British homebuyers are seeking properties with energy efficient upgrades, reduced carbon emissions, and high EPC ratings. But this further surge towards sustainability is not just a matter of conscience; its a financial decision by savvy buyers that could increase the value of their homes by up to 15%.

According to recent data from Rightmoves Greener Homes report, enhancing a home’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating from F to C could lead to a 15% rise in its overall value. Put into context, on a typical property price of £285,000 as registered by the Office for National Statistics, that would mean £42,750 of added value. This of course also means the occupants enjoy lower energy bills, which can be up to 50% depending on the upgrades made
