Listing Criteria

General Criteria for The Green Property List

We are looking for properties that have at the very least 4 sustainable features, 2 of which are energy related and at least 2 water related. These would generally include, but are not limited to, the following:

Energy features Water features Garden features
Low energy lighting Water efficient showers Edible plants (fruit trees)
Insulation Water efficient tapware Vegetable patch
Draft seals throughout Rain water tank Drought tolerant plants
Solar PV system Grey water system Mulch on garden beds
Gas hot water or heating Dual flush toilets Worm farm/compost heap
Ceiling fans Solar heated pool
Passive heating/cooling Solar garden lighting
5 Star Plus appliances
Double Glazing (if relevant)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For every home that meets the minimum criteria and is listed on our Green Property Listing, we create a report that covers:

  • General Overview (including building orientation and design)
  • Heating and Cooling
  • Energy
  • Water
  • Gardens
  • Lifestyle (what’s in walking or cycling distance).

If your home has been recently built (from 2004 onwards) we will also ask for the Thermal Performance Assessment star rating for additional information. The more ‘green’ features your home has the better the grading and the more appealing it will be to perspective buyers/renters.

Homes that do not currently meet the minimum standard sadly can not be listed on the Green Property List. However with a little effort your home could possibly be upgraded so see our Services information or call us to discuss further, we’ll be happy to help.

 

New Developments

Every new development listed on this site must meet current environmental standards as set by the relevant state and be at least 7 Star energy rated or higher. The ‘green’ features will be documented by our Sustainability Report developed specifically for developments. The report covers:

  • General Overview (includes building orientation and design)
  • Heating and Cooling
  • Energy
  • Water
  • Gardens
  • Lifestyle (what’s in walking or cycling distance).

New developments have a great opportunity to maximise sustainable features and reduce their buildings environmental footprint. The more ‘green’ features your development has the better the EcoView and the more appealing it will be to perspective buyers/renters.
