Maximise the chances of finding a buyer with a floorplan

Are you currently selling your property or thinking about putting it on the market? Have you got a floorplan included within your property details? If the answer is no, then you could be missing out on enquiries, viewings and ultimately that elusive buyer!


New Rightmove research suggests that floorplans are one of the most important aspects of property presentation to buyers.

Buyers are less likely to enquire about a property without a floorplan

Over a third of buyers said that they were less likely to enquire about a property without a floorplan. They stated that they want to see the room layout, to see where rooms fit in relation to others rooms and to understand the flow of the property and a floorplan is undoubtedly the best way to gather this information.

On the floorplan itself, buyers want to see room dimensions. Home-hunters rated room dimensions as the most important feature when looking at a floorplan. If you currently have a floorplan on your Rightmove property listing, ensure that it has the room dimensions included (or be sure to include them in the property details).

A floorplan is more important than the main image or the summary description

Our recent survey showed us that other than the number of images a property has, a floorplan is most important when looking for property. One buyer commented that “pictures can be deceptive, a floorplan is more definitive” and another said “I don’t want to waste unnecessary time being misled by good photos”.

This is probably one of the reasons that 1 in 5 buyers would ignore a property listing completely, or only re-visit it if there was nothing else that caught their eye, if a property was without a floorplan.

Home-hunters are less likely to arrange a viewing if there is no floorplan

“I am less likely to arrange to view without a floorplan”; this was common feedback from our users and time was shown to be a key factor why they avoid viewings of properties without floorplans. “Time is a commodity and there are normally many other properties with a floorplan whom I would rather contact” commented one respondent. In fact, 1 in 10 buyers said that they would never arrange view a property if they had not seen a floorplan first, with many more indicating that they would be less likely to view. “The absence of a floor plan is a barrier” summed up one home-hunter.

This research shows that floorplans form a vital part of many buyers research process… Are you missing out?

Energy Performance Certificates

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required by law when a building is built, sold or put up for rent. If you are a landlord or homeowner and need to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) this will need to be completed by an accredited domestic energy assessor. They will carry out the assessment and produce the certificate. Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

What does the EPC say about the property?

An Energy Performance Certificate gives clear information about the energy performance of a property. An EPC will also make recommendations about how the property could improve it’s energy performance.

How long does it take to perform an EPC assessment?

An assessment takes anywhere from 25 minutes to 1 hour for a domestic EPC and a couple of hours to a couple of days for a Commercial EPC depending upon the size of the commercial property. Factors such as the size of the property, it’s age and general access to it, will have an influence on the time. Generally, an energy assessment won’t cause much inconvenience but, it’s important that the energy assessor can get access to any loft space and heating appliances (e.g. a boiler). An internal and external inspection of the property is also required for a certificate.



What is an energy assessor looking for?

  • Noting the construction of the walls and checking wall insulation.
  • Confirming how many windows are double glazed.
  • Counting the number of open fireplaces.
  • Checking the make and model of the boiler under EU SEDBUK regulations.
  • Looking for green energy devices such as solar panels.
  • Counting the number of low energy light bulbs.
  • Confirming the type of heating system used e.g. gas, electric, underfloor etc.
  • Noting down the type of material used to insulate any hot water cylinders.
  • Assessing the heat loss through roof, check loft insulation.
  • Checking for excessive window area in larger houses.
  • Taking precise measurements of conservatories and extensions.
  • Counting how many habitable rooms are heated.
  • What is the procedure once the assessor has visited?

    Once the assessor has visited property, the information is uploaded onto the Government authorized software. A certificate is produced and emailed to the customer within 24 hours after the payment is received.
