Reasons to build

#1 It doesn’t
cost more

The cost of building new compared to the cost of an existing home in New Zealand is variable depending on where you live, but interestingly the costs are often pretty much the same.

less deposit

Unlike buying an existing property, new builds only need a 10% deposit, which means it’s easier to secure your future when you build with Platinum Homes. Read about your financing options in our New Build Guide so you can make the best decision on your next home.

#5 An excellent investment

New builds often appreciate in value during the construction phase itself. On top of this, they offer a tax advantage: the capital gains tax obligation for new builds is cleared twice as quickly as existing properties. This makes them an excellent choice for medium-term investments.
