Ensure your home is family-fit.


Bayleys are proud to be part of the start towards healthy and safe homes in New Zealand.

When the health and safety of your home is a top priority, an independent HomeFit® rating can give you the peace of mind you’re after. You’ll know for sure that it meets ventilation, insulation, heating and energy efficiency standards that make it fit for your family. To find out more about HomeFit®, visit homefit.org.nz

Around half of New Zealand homes have visible mould. Half of New Zealand adults say they live in a cold house, and over 60 percent of Kiwis say their homes need repairs.

It’s time to make our homes better.

So the New Zealand Green Building Council have created a straightforward way for everyone – whether you’re looking to rent, buy, or fix up your own home – to check the health of a home.

It’s called HomeFit®, and it’s a no-nonsense way to assess the quality of a home – that it’s warm, safe and dry.

If a home has had an independent, quick assessment, and passes HomeFit®, then it will have a HomeFit® stamp so you can be sure that it’s fit for your family.

There’s also a simple online HomeFit® check, designed especially for Kiwis looking at homes to buy or rent. By going to HomeFit®.org.nz, and answering a few easy questions about the home with a few clicks on your screen, as you stroll around, you can see immediately if it’s a warm, dry, healthy place to live – and what you can do to fix it if it isn’t.

The New Zealand Green Building Council is a not-for-profit organisation, working to make sure that all New Zealanders are safe, healthy and happy at home.
