Cycle storage can add value to your home

In tough economic times, it's worth knowing that adding cycle storage to your property might help you sell it.

It's now compulsory for home sellers to provide home information packs (HIPs), which include a sustainability index (from zero to six), rating your property's environmental friendliness.

The index works on a points system, and cycle storage can earn credits. So, if you have cycle storage, make sure you give all the details to your HIP provider and estate agent to earn the maximum rating, and make your property as attractive to buyers as possible.
