The value of a house increases thanks to fiber optics

Fiber optics not only provides a better browsing experience. It is also a great lever to increase the value of your property. Research shows that the selling price of a house rises by an average of three per cent when it is connected to fiber optics.

3 per cent increase in value

Fast and reliable internet is a must-have for more and more house buyers. So houses without fiber optics attract less interest. Verhuizen.com looked at an American study which calculated that the difference in value can amount to around three per cent.

The Dutch removal website refers to an evaluation by the university Colorado of 525,000 house sales between 2011 and 2013. This shows that the availability of internet via fiber can put up the value of a house worth € 160,000 by € 5,000. The impact is clearest in rural areas, where internet speeds often fluctuate.

Make your building ready for the future

According to the removal website, more and more estate agents are also noticing this change. To anticipate this, it is best to provide fiber optics connections. 

The website www.proximus.be/building is designed to assist architects and construction companies with this. It provides the information that you need and you can find out whether your construction site can be connected to fiberglass now or in the future. You can fill in an online form so that we can contact you to discuss a connection. In addition, Proximus has drawn up specifications.
