How to get on the property ladder?

11 June 2019

For most Kiwis, the goal of owning your own home remains a powerful aspiration but affordability can be a major barrier to achieving this. Whether you’re looking to build, buy, renovate or rent, it’s important to seek professional advice so you can make the right decision for your family.

Homeowners are starting to think outside the box when it comes to getting into the property market. For many, the ability to create flexible spaces is a primary driver – whether that’s to support a growing family, home and income opportunities or the ability to cohabit with family members and friends to ease the mortgage burden. All these creative solutions put building a new property firmly into the consideration set.

New developments and satellite communities support the growing trend, with many home buyers leaving established suburbs to create communities that meet their lifestyle needs.

“High costs are perceived to be associated with building, but when you work with a company that can provide fixed time frames and budgets, investing in a new home can be significantly cheaper than buying an existing property or renting over the long term,” says Generation Homes Chief Executive Kevin Atkinson.

“With interest rates at an historic low and the eligibility some people will have for the government’s HomeStart scheme, it could be the right time to look at building a new home.”

New houses have all the modern conveniences. They’re warmer, drier, safer and far more energy efficient than older New Zealand homes. Plus you can control all design features so the property becomes a true reflection of your family’s lifestyle and personality.

Another major advantage of building is that new homes require less maintenance and you don’t have to worry about immediate repairs or renovations. The key is finding a homebuilding company that you can trust – that’s where Generation Homes can help you.
