Does sustainable building make a property more expensive? Not necessarily, Charlie Williams of Terresens says.
'One common objection against eco-homes is the perception of a higher price point.' While this might be correct in some cases, Terresens ensures that all properties are priced in line with the market.
'Properties in Les Mazets de Ventoux for example, are available from Euro141,000 [HK$1.57 million], with an attractive 4.1 per cent guaranteed index-linked return, plus 3 per cent cashback, and due to the superior eco-credentials, resale appeal is expected to be higher than traditional homes in the area.'
