The energy efficiency of one's own home is becoming increasingly important, even when selling. A study by the universities of Tilburg and Maastricht shows that non-energy rated homes (energy perfomance label red; F and G) homes are being sold at a growing price discount. The researchers analyzed NVM data from more than 450,000 housing transactions since 2018 and found a price discount that, for a single-family home, rose to more than 30,000 euros in 2021.
