“Our data confirms this trend, with homeowners making smart investments in windows and doors that include high-end security features and energy-efficient technology to not only offer peace of mind, but also translate to tangible value appreciation.

“This highlights the changing preferences of homebuyers, who are increasingly looking for properties that offer more than just a prestigious postcode.”
