Habito partners with Propflo to launch broker retrofit tool for homeowners

Habito has partnered with Propflo, an AI-driven proptech startup, in order to introduce a new broker retrofit tool for homeowners, GreenVal.

GreenVal will be offered directly to existing Habito customers and provides a cutting-edge business case that outlines all the benefits and costs associated with making a property more energy efficient.

The tool will also allow users to gain insight into a property’s resilience with a rating that factors in thermal comfort, air quality, and financial stability, and obtain quotes for significant improvements from leading accredited national suppliers.

Habito will be the first major mortgage intermediary to use such a tool and will be working with Propflo and lenders to get homeowners the most suitable finance options.

William Rhind, VP mortgage advice and growth at Habito, said: “We know that rising mortgage costs and energy bills are having a real impact on people’s lives, and this partnership will enable us to help our customers to potentially reduce both.

“We were also recently featured in the TechCrunch Climate 100 that showcases UK tech companies who are at the forefront of climate action; this partnership with Propflo will enable us to continue making huge progress in one of the most important global challenges.”

Luke Loveridge, founder and CEO of Propflo, added: “Mortgage advisors and lenders are in a unique position to help people make their homes more energy efficient.

“Habito led the sector in becoming more digital, and is now becoming the clear leader in the sector to help tackle the ~£200bn retrofit challenge.

“I’m inspired by the team and look forward to working closely with them in future!”
