creating Healthy,
Efficient, Comfortable
and Connected homes

Are you looking for a home with reduced running costs and which is healthy, efficient, comfortable and connected to your local community?  Well, you’re one of many people driving a future-focussed approach in real estate that is changing the way the value of a home is perceived.

The Liveability Real Estate Framework is a new initiative, backed by CSIRO, Australia’s peak scientific body, which enables simple and effective identification of the Liveability Features of a home. As a home owner, buyer or seller, knowing a home’s potential for reduced running costs, increased comfort and future impact is really valuable, and something we know many are looking for, particularly in our progressive inner west area.

This isn’t a rating system. It is a new, independent, listing standard which contains benchmarks for 17 individual property features, called The 17 Things™.


Do you have any of these Liveability Features in your home?

If so, that’s great! Not only are you saving costs but you’re contributing to a more liveable future for everyone. The good news for sellers is, your property may be eligible for the exclusive Liveablility Features icon and additional listing opportunities – Ask us how.

The Liveability Property Feature trademark

The Liveability Features trademark is not an energy rating. It is simply a way to assist prospective buyers, sellers and renters to recognise properties which have features that offer the potential for reduced running costs and increased comfort if used correctly by the occupant.

A property needs a minimum of six selected Liveability Features™ to receive the Liveability Property Features trademark on a rental or sales listing.

Once you have bought or leased your home you can find out more information about how to bring these features to life when living in your home on
