Information for HomeSmart homeowners

Back to Existing Homes



Thank you to all who took part in the HomeSmart Renovation project.  In particular, we thank:

  • the 650 homeowners from Auckland , Rotorua, Taupo, Wellington, Marlborough, Christchurch, Dunedin and Southland who had their home assessed by our independent assessors
  • the 432 households who actively participated interviews and surveys, and undertook renovations as part of the project
  • the 183 homes which were monitored using temperature loggers in living areas and the main bedroom and humidity gauges
  • the 76 homes which had their water use monitored, either by water bills or by having water meters installed

Thank you for your interest and participation.  We hope this project had positive spin-offs for you, your families and homes.
