The course that truly delivers a real point of difference

The 17 Liveability Features you’re currently missing in your appraisals

“In recent research³, general real estate agents were rated lower in trust rankings than agents with specialist knowledge in energy, lifestyle, comfort and design”

The Liveability Features Framework is an exciting innovation in the way property is marketed. It enables upskilled salespeople or property managers to simply and effectively identify a new collection of Liveability Features and seemlessly bring these into their normal appraisal processes in a robust and systematic way.

It was created for and by the residential property marketing industry in collaboration with the design and construction industries to address rising consumer demand for information about the running cost and comfort potential of properties. The running cost affordability of a property is impacting the information buyers, investors and renters want and need when considering and comparing homes.

In recent research¹, 89% of consumers said that they would find a home more attractive if these features were identified at point of sale or lease

As a Liveability Real Estate Specialist with future-focused property knowledge and resources you are positioned to meet this new opportunity in residential real estate. This is a nationally recognised proptech tool, training and membership program developed from within the property marketing industry and is supported by CSIRO.
