The Properties

A turnkey home is a property that is ready to live in when you purchase it… there is no extra work needed. Our properties are brand new, built to high standards with all healthy homes and landlord requirements taken care of, making them ready to immediately rent out and receive rental income from.

The properties are all freehold (you own the ground beneath), and therefore there is no body corporate. You are responsible for paying your own rates, organising rubbish collection etc.

The features will vary across each investment property, you can find all the specifications in the development specific information packs.

The price of each investment property is fixed, the only change to the market price will be if you choose to upgrade any of the products used in your build, this will be determined at the time of signing the contract on your investment property.

The Returns

We have included projected returns* for your investment property in each development specific brochure. If you request a brochure on our website for a development, we will send it to your chosen email address. *Please note that the projections are calculated on several assumptions which are outlined on the page.

Whilst the legislation is frequently evolving, the recent announcements were to curb rising house prices on existing builds. Given there is a shortage of housing in New Zealand, many of the rules introduced excluded new builds including extension of the bright-line test, tax deductions on interest paid and loan-to-value ratio restrictions.
