Green Property Values Boosted by Rising Energy & Water Prices

A properly installed rainwater harvesting system or even emergency water supply water tanks increases the desirability & value of both commercial & residential properties. This is true no matter whether you are in Australia (where the article below emanates) or whether you are in South Africa. Many towns and cities in South Africa are increasingly experiencing water supply cuts – water tanks on a property are of great value, as anyone who has been cut off from municipal water will attest!

Rising energy and water prices will boost the value of existing green homes and commercial premises leading to a new wave of environmental design, housing products and marketing approaches by the real estate industry.

The pace of rising energy prices has drawn a line in the sand on the costs of running poorly designed and poorly insulated domestic and commercial premises.  This will become a highly identified cost in every family budget and on the bottom line of every business.

Every week there seems to be new charge arriving in the letterbox either for essential services such as power and water, or for council rates and charges. The carbon pricing is set to commence on 1 July 2012 and will lift the cost of living again, notwithstanding the planned assistance offsets.

Home owners with well designed, properly insulated homes including items such as solar panels and rain water tanks, stand to save hundreds or thousands of dollars a year on their energy and water bills as prices escalate dramatically and will be winners.

The pressure of housing affordability today is not just in the initial building costs as housing affordability has now spread into increasingly costly services such as power, water and gas needed to run a home.

Whilst there are endless calls to address housing affordability there is nowhere near the same level of activity and understanding in reducing running costs to protect the Great Australian Dream of home ownership.
