Who benefits from the single-property reports?

Homebuyers

Like a building and pest inspection, our climate impact reports identify potential risks to property, helping buyers make more informed decisions.

Homesellers

Our climate impact reports help demonstrate a property’s climate credentials and differentiate it for prospective buyers.

Homeowners

We support homeowners in identifying their property's vulnerabilities and preparing their homes for climate change and extreme weather events.

How climate change could impact your property?

The increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather events poses a substantial economic risk to homeowners and property investors around the world.

Costly Repairs

Ongoing and costly damage from extreme weather events is expected to increase exponentially over the next 50 years.

Rising Premiums

One in every 25 property owners face insurance premiums that will be effectively unaffordable by 2030.

Market Devaluation

According to a recent analysis, the property market is projected to lose $700bn in value by 2100.

"I found the report comprehensive and very well presented. I could clearly see how properties ranked on a 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."

“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few of the common questions we receive about our residential range of products and services

Just like you would conduct a building and pest inspection to ensure your new property is structurally sound, a Climate Risk report will provide you valuable information on your home’s vulnerability to extreme weather impacts over time. This allows you to make more informed decisions about the home you chose to purchase, or factor in work you may need to conduct on the property in order to make it more resilient.

Current flood reports from local government councils do not account for changes to weather patterns due to climate change. It is possible that properties that are not currently located within flood zones, will become flood-able with climate change. A Climate Valuation report will account for changing weather patterns to identify if your property is likely to become a flood risk in the future.

Buying a property is a long term investment. Very few homebuyers consider the long term cost or availability of insurance when buying a new home, however this can be one of the largest ongoing expenses associated with homeownership. Our climate risk reports provide in-depth insights into the potential impacts of extreme weather and climate change on the future value and insurability of a property over time, allowing you to make more informed decisions about your investment.

Your personalised climate risk report will take less than 2 minutes to complete. Simply enter a few details about your property’s design and construction and your results will be sent to your email inbox within 15 minutes.

Our reports range in price depending on the level of detail you require. A comprehensive report costs just $68 USD and allows advanced customisation of your property’s attributes, which improves the accuracy of your results.

Our analysis draws on data from thousands of national and international sources including local weather, hydrology, geology and satellite mapping of the biosphere. This information is then combined with latest climate change projections and hazard data layers to determine the changing exposure of a property in that location over time. Hazard data is highly localised and accurate down to a 5×5 metre resolution. This means our software can tell the difference between the side of a street that gets flooded in heavy rain and the side that does not.

Individual property design and construction are also accounted for to determine the property’s vulnerability to specific hazards to which it will likely be exposed. In this case, the more information you can provide on the property’s design and construction, the more accurate the results of this vulnerability analysis.

Find out more information on how our software calculates your property’s risk by visiting the methodology section of our website.

There are a number of things an individual can do to improve the resilience of their property to climate change. This can range from updating the roof fixtures and tie downs, to installing flood defences and drainage. A comprehensive report will identify which elements of the property are vulnerable to damage from specific hazards and help identify adaptation recommendations to improve its resilience.

Please carefully review the settings selected before finalising your report as these may materially impact the results of your climate risk analysis. Each report will contain a record of the settings used to conduct the analysis. You can access previously run reports under your account profile. If you have any further questions or concerns about your results, you can contact us via the contact page.
