Listing Rightmove as a Hobby?

I know I’m not the only one who loves browsing rightmove for their dream house. I quite often spend a relaxing ten minutes scrolling through the latest houses added in any of the three areas I monitor regularly.
That’s not to say I don’t stray more wildly across the country. Often I’ll hear a place mentioned and go off and look up what the houses are like there.

And I have a confession to make. I scroll to the photos on the left rather than looking at those shown on the right.
It’s because generally the outdoor photos are last in the estate agent line up, and so they’re first if you go looking to the left!
You can change a lot about a house inside but you can’t change where it is! As Kirsty and Phil used to say “Location, Location, Location.”
I’ll turn that around a bit and say “Garden, Garden, Garden!” Although I am sure my husband would say “Garage, Workshop, storage space”.
It’s interesting to know what other people’s priorities are: some people only want a small garden, some want a huge house, some need a garage and many need something a bit bigger than where they are now. Or indeed a bit smaller.  We all want different things. And what many of us want is ten minutes browsing lovely tidy houses on Rightmove.

Energy performance certificates

These are going to become increasingly important as fuel prices rise.

If you’re buying or selling a house then you must provide an EPC. There are some exemptions to this for listed buildings.

 

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is:

  • built
  • sold
  • rented

You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent.

An EPC has

  • the information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
    This will help a prospective buyer know how high the bills are likely to be.
  • The recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money
    This is perhaps the important bit. Knowing how much work you can do to a potential new house might influence it’s purchase.

An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and they are only valid for 10 years.

If you’re not buying a house or selling yours, but want to improve the energy efficiency then there’s lots of useful information out there.

Draught-proofing and improvements to doors and windows should be the first step.
Solar panels or heat pumps are bigger changes to make.

There’s some really good sites out there where people have recorded how they’ve insulated their homes.

This site has a Householders Energy Efficiency Manual published for different types of houses
