Benefits of Home Quality Mark

Page Description

Home Quality Mark (HQM) can benefit property developers and investors by improving the quality and environment performance of residential developments.

About Home Quality Mark

In the rapidly evolving landscape of the property market, the HQM stands as a beacon of assurance and quality. Whether you’re a property owner, developer, or investor, HQM offers a multitude of benefits that align with your goals and values.

About Home Quality Mark

Our rigorous assessment process means that your residential development meets high standards for running costs, health and wellbeing, and environmental footprint. For your customers, this means lower energy bills, a healthier living environment, and a home that contributes to a sustainable future.

For investors and owners of build-to-rent assets, Home Quality Mark (HQM) certification is a powerful tool for attracting tenants. HQM quality can command higher rental premiums and ensure a steady stream of tenants who value a sustainable and healthy living space.

HQM-certified homes are designed with efficiency in mind, which means lower maintenance and running costs over time. This is a win-win for both property owners and investors, as it not only enhances the asset’s value but also contributes to long-term sustainability goals and tenant satisfaction.


Benefits for property developers

For developers, HQM is a mark of distinction. It demonstrates your commitment to quality and sustainability, setting your properties apart in a competitive market. Our focus on the build-to-rent and co-living sectors means that HQM aligns with the latest trends in property development. An HQM certification is a tangible demonstration of these principles, making your properties more attractive to a growing market of conscious investors.


Benefits for investors

Investors are increasingly recognising the importance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in their decision-making process. HQM can be a vital tool for investors as it aligns with sustainability objectives. Through its comprehensive assessment of quality, sustainability, and performance of homes, HQM helps investors make informed decisions that not only contribute to environmental stewardship but also positively impact social well-being.

HQM’s robust governance standards ensure transparency and ethical practices, which are essential for investors’ sustainability reporting. By opting for properties with the Home Quality Mark, investors can effectively demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, which can be vital to attract funding for projects. HQM can also bolster investors’ sustainability profiles, helping them meet their own objectives and reporting requirements, while fostering a reputation for responsible investment in the market.
