High energy prices have caused all of us to consider reducing our energy consumption. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to live in a cold home. There are several ways to keep your home warm without breaking the bank. Here are some energy-efficient heating tips that will not only save you money but also help you to have a more sustainable and environmentally friendly home.

 

Thermostat

Programmable thermostats allow you to create a heating schedule that works around your daily schedule. Setting the temperature to be lower when you're out or asleep, and higher when you're at home can help to drastically reduce your heating bills as you are only paying for the heat that you need and not to heat your home when it is empty.

 

Draughts

Small gaps around windows and doors can allow draughts into your home, forcing your central heating system to work harder. Weatherstripping and caulk can be used to seal any gaps, ensuring that warm air stays inside and cold air stays out.

 

When choosing an estate agent to sell your home in Nottingham beware of selecting one based purely on the fact that they have given you the highest valuation.

 

This is because often after a few months, without any offers, they will then suggest that you lower your asking price to create some interest. What this actually means is that you will be reducing your price to what it should have been put on the market for in the first place.

 

Many people think “but we can always take an offer/it’s worth a try”. However, there are several problems with this approach.

 

Here we are in 2024 already. Hope you had a great time bringing in the new year. Let’s take a look back over the property market in Nottingham during December 2023 to round out the year.


By regularly examining the facts and data, we provide valuable insights to property sellers and buyers, helping you make informed decisions in the ever-changing Nottingham property market. 

 

There are currently 444,362 properties available for sale in Nottingham, which is an increase from 3,315 last month. In the last two weeks, 263 properties have come onto the market.



The current average asking price in Nottingham is £309,488, which is an increase of 0.8% since last month when the average asking price was £307,153 but is still down slightly from £312,820 in October. The median* asking price has remained steady at £260,000. 

 

No-one wants their property to linger on the market. Not only does it delay when you can move to your new home but when properties take longer than average to sell it also affects their value meaning you will not receive the best possible price for your property.

 

When a property has been on the market for a long time, many potential buyers assume there must be a serious problem with it. It's only human to be put off of something that other people don’t like. When a property has been on the market for a longer period of time, many buyers feel that those buyers, who saw it but weren't interested, must know something about the property that they don't, and so many don’t even choose to go and see it.

 

Estate agents consider a listing to be ‘stale’ after 90 days. So what can you do if your property isn’t selling?

Many people wait to put their properties on the market until Spring believing that the housing market becomes more buoyant at that time.

 

However, there is an abundance of people who due to New Year’s resolutions, marital breakdowns (January traditionally has a higher rate of divorce than any other month) and those who simply decide during their festive break that they would like to upgrade their home, who are looking to purchase properties after the New Year.
