"I found the report comprehensive and very well presented. I could clearly see how properties ranked on an easy to follow hierarchy. The report also highlighted areas that I had not previously considered when searching for and evaluating potential properties. The entire process was streamlined and very easy! I would recommend this service as a must for anyone considering purchasing a home!"

"I found the Climate Valuation online when investigating a property on the beach at Surfers Paradise. The platform is easy to use and is backed by scientific evidence in creating a risk assessment... I would recommend using the Climate Valuation service as part of your due diligence for any site that could be influenced by climate change."

"I have so many friends and family on the Gold Coast which is one of the most high-risk areas in the country and so climate-risk is definitely at the front of my mind as I start to inspect properties. This is a major decision but I feel more confident now that I have the ability to understand the current and future implications of climate change on the properties I look at and proactively take steps to protect my future investment."
JuliaHomebuyer

“I was originally looking at a low-lying property in Fremantle, WA, but after properly understanding the climate risk I had shortlisted, I realised the high flood risk and chose a home with a higher elevation and lower risk, just a few blocks away. When purchasing a home that I intend to live in for the next 30-50 years, knowing the long-term future risks that will impact the investment is really important. I think that it’s critical for people to know the potential for climate risk to guide their decision.”
