Pre-purchase efficiency report

Know how comfortable a home is before you buy

Couple inspecting a property

Buying a home is typically the biggest and most emotional purchase of your life, so why wait till after you’ve bought it and moved in to see how comfortable it will be? As part of your due diligence process, you can arrange a pre-purchase efficiency report. You’ll find out how efficient the home is to run, and how comfortable it would be to live in.

As your expert sustainability partner, we’re here to support and guide you so you can make informed decisions when it comes to energy and water efficiency, and living as comfortably and cost-effectively as possible.

Our Pre-purchase efficiency review will tell you about levels of energy and water efficiency in your potential new home. We’ll also point out possible improvements and rough costs to implement, so you’ll know exactly what you’re buying into.

What a Pre-purchase efficiency review covers

We can either visit the property with you at an open for inspection or book a separate appointment with the listing real estate agent or owner. Onsite we will assess the following

  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Energy efficiency
  • Draft proofing
  • Water efficiency
  • Insulation and glazing (where possible)


You will get a report outlining the levels of energy and water efficiency in the home, a list of possible improvements and how much it may cost to implement.

If you’ve already purchased a property, you can opt to do a Scorecard Assessment instead.

How much does it cost

Our fee is $550 including GST

What people we’ve worked with say about us

Service is a word bandied about by most businesses but they don’t even know what it means. In a world where service & efficiency have almost dwindled away, there are still a few gems to be found. Danie King is one such gem & I am only too pleased to recommend her & excellent service & thoughtfulness.
She filled me with confidence & I knew I was on the right track.

Danielle was excellent, very knowledgeable and practical. We especially appreciated her suggestions as they were prioritised and took into account the energy savings versus the money spent to upgrade or improve. Highly recommend this service.
Danielle helped us to decide where to spend our money to improve our home energy usage.
