TURNING green is becoming more and more popular among homeowners as rising household costs, government legislation and greater environmental awareness combine in favour of making a change. Real Estate Institute of Queensland managing director Dan Molloy said sustainable housing was no longer a fringe issue and was increasingly seen as a smart investment decision undertaken by everyday homebuyers.
“Demand for sustainable housing is expected to increase in the years ahead,” Mr Molloy said. “People are more community-minded and are increasingly aware of their personal responsibility for conserving precious and scarce natural resources.
“Some features to consider when building or buying a sustainable home include whether the property has water efficient appliances and a rainwater tank; and if it has passive solar design which can be achieved by incorporating good ventilation, insulation, shading and materials.”
