Our reports provide valuable insights into the physical and financial impacts of climate change on the future value and insurability of residential property. Using engineering and investment grade analysis, our reports can help you make informed decisions about buying, selling, insuring and protecting your real estate investment for a climate adjusted future.
To ensure everyone has a basic understanding of their property’s climate-related risks, we are offering our Free Site Check service.
This recommended report provides detailed insights into driving hazards contributing to your property’s climate change and extreme weather risk over time.
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 meter 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.

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.
