10 Reasons Why A New Build Home Is Right For You

10 Reasons Why A New Build Home Is Right For You

  1. You’ll have all the latest technology

From heated flooring to efficient heating and cooling your new home will be designed around comfort and will be much more enjoyable to live in!


  1. You will be able to have your dream home

Instead of buying an existing home and compromising on certain aspects while renovating, you can build your dream home from scratch. You can choose exactly what you want – from how you want your home to look aesthetically to how you want your home to work for your lifestyle (work from home office, children rooms, family rooms etc), without any structural compromise. 


  1. Your new home will have modern features

Design and functionality has come a long way in the last few years. With beautiful en suites, walk in wardrobes, timber feature walls, open plan living designs, easy access and more. Incorporating new features to your home will not only make you live more comfortably but raise the value of your home for resale.


  1. Your home will be easier to sell

The modern features outlined in the point above will certainly make your home more appealing to buyers when you decide to put your home on the market. Not only the new design features and extras, but the new technology that makes the home up to today’s standards – double glazing, good insulation and more.


  1. You will get the latest building standards 

Building code has changed drastically over the years. What was once was overlooked in the building industry is now essential to have a compliant home. Today’s builders build to perfection, which makes building a new home much more appealing. Engineer plans and subcontractors now have to adhere to stricter rules which ultimately make new homes much more stable and durable.


  1. You will have a better chance at growing capital 

A capital gain is the profit you make when you sell a property. When you build a new home the margin you make will likely be higher than the inflation that you will gain from buying an existing home. In most cases, it can be cheaper and more affordable to buy an empty section and build new than to buy an existing home.


  1. Maintenance will be lower than buying an existing home

Due to all the new regulations and requirements, your new home will have double glazing, aluminium joinery, good insulation and no leaks. This means that your house will require a lot less maintenance than a pre-existing house that is older with wooden joinery, old cladding and single glazing. This leaves you with no unexpected bills!


  1. Your new home will be cheaper to run 

With the new technology we have today (double glazing and insulation), your new home will be cheaper to run and more efficient. This will save you money in the long run.


  1. Immediate compliance with the Healthy Homes Legislation

Investing in a new build means that your home will immediately comply with the NZ Healthy Homes Legislation. 


  1. Easier to find good rental candidates

With a brand new home, you will find it easier to find rental tenants and the good ones too.


Overall, building a new home outweighs the benefits of buying an existing home. With new technology, new design features, growing more capital and saving money you will benefit in the long run.
