Homebuyers 'looking for green houses for sale'

Homebuyers 'looking for green houses for sale'

There could be more homebuyers looking for environmentally-friendly houses for sale in the UK.

This is because Alison Coleman, marketing manager from Magnet, has revealed that as people are becoming more environmentally conscious this is "reflected in every purchase for the home".

Her comment comes after Santander Mortgages reported in June that first-time buyers spend an average of £3,782 renovating their new homes.

It also revealed that one in six first-time buyers spend less than £1,000 on transforming their properties, suggesting that in order to achieve a green home they are more likely to buy them already equipped with environmentally-friendly features.

Ms Coleman said that these could include durable worktops which are partly made from recycled consumer waste and industrial waste.

She added that they are "an environmentally-friendly way to decorate your kitchen".

Recent research released by Ikea earlier this week confirmed her comments, revealing that more householders want an energy-efficient space in their kitchens.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800024625-ADNFCR
