Successfully implementing Nulux energy saving solutions can directly boost the value of your property by around three dollars for each dollar spent – as well as benefiting our environment.
Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, have outperformed the broader market in Australia by 50 per cent over the 5 year period from mid 2011 to mid 2016. This has been driven partly by our generally strong economy but also by declining interest rates over this period. With the outlook for rising interest rates in Australia and globally the property sector is going to be under pressure.
What can property owners and managers do about this? Many have been focusing on cost reduction. Energy cost reduction, Nulux’s specialty, has particular attractions because:
- energy savings can be reliably predicted by Nulux – the technologies and their performance are well tested and reliable
- most solutions we identify have an investment payback period of around 2 to 4 years – a 3 year investment payback is fairly representative
Let’s look at some simple property valuation metrics. With the property sector conservatively estimated to be trading at around 9 or 10 times earnings every dollar you spend on energy saving solutions will drive around three dollars of additional value in your properties.
If you care about the value of your properties you can’t afford not to understand the potential for energy savings and their impact on valuation.
