Sustainability has rapidly become one of the most important issues in wider society, where recent attention has been focused on sustainable practices in the built environment such as the design, construction and operation of new buildings. Although detached houses are one of the largest land uses in the built environment, it is surprising that relatively little research has been conducted into the implementation and demand for sustainability. Even though the technology exists for increasing sustainability in housing, it appears that little attention has been given to the added value that sustainability can give to a property.
This paper discusses recent developments in sustainability with regards to housing. It identifies and groups the various options available to a housing owner, although the focus is placed on how much the sustainable features add (or detract) from the value of the home. Consideration is given to the existing valuation methods that are used to assess the value of a residential property and also the ease of implementation.
