Before putting your home onto the open market it is imperative that you make it irresistible to buyers.
Do this by taking the mind-set of a potential buyer and contemplate what features would persuade you to lodge an offer for a property.
If you’re unsure what might swing a sale in your favour then a recent study by comparison experts Gocompare will enlighten you.
The Top 5 must-have features for buyers were unveiled as follows:
1. Central heating – 79%
2. Double glazing – 74%
3. Garden – 71%
4. Secure windows and doors – 70%
5. Off road parking – 58%
Moving into somewhere warm and energy efficient is therefore of upmost importance to the house buyers of Britain which is no surprise for two reasons; rising energy bills and the unpredictable UK climate.
Other key selling points mentioned by those polled included a bath, good broadband connection, local shops and friendly neighbours.
But if you haven’t already, investing in a reliable central heating system and energy efficient double glazed windows should be the top priority.
Single glazing just doesn’t cut it when it comes to preventing heat loss, regularly allowing large quantities of warmth to escape through the glass and frames. Subsequently, a home will become cold and cost an arm and a leg to warm up.
Combining a contemporary heating system with double glazed windows will significantly raise comfort levels indoors and lower the cost of household fuel.
They’ll pay for themselves over time when you calculate how much money you’re likely to save during the coming years because of their installation.
Those who can afford it could think about upgrading to triple glazed windows to make even more substantial savings.
