Are sustainable homes worth it?

A research project undertaken by PRDNationwide and the Queensland University of Technology has found that sustainable high performance homes sell faster and for more money than their standard equivalents.

It is always great to see the benefits our sustainable homes can bring to our clients while they are living in them. When looking at the long-term benefits, it is exciting that the property market has also caught up and appreciates the effort put into sustainable real estate. 

PRDNationwide's Residential Real Estate 2018 Green Guide which has been funded through the Australian Federal Government outlines some key benefits to having a property with sustainable features, including: 

  • more savings on utility bills and less maintenance
  • reduced construction materials and emissions
  • less days to sell listed property
  • improved comfort and long-term lifestyle
  • higher median price
  • higher resale value
