The running cost affordability of a property is impacting the way buyers, investors and renters are viewing homes at point of sale or lease.

The Liveability Real Estate Framework is “features-based” framework which enables salespeople or property managers to simply and effectively identify a new collection of Liveability Features™ into the point of sale or rent.

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 at point of sale or rent.

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

This is a nationally recognised training and membership program developed from within the property marketing industry and owned and support by CSIRO.
