2017 is shaping up to be a busy year for the building industry throughout New Zealand. With the Auckland housing shortage, the ongoing Reserve Bank exemption of new dwellings from the LVR restrictions, the building industry appears set for another great year.
With an unprecedented level of building anticipated over the next few years, if you’ve been considering building a new home as part of your New Year’s resolution, now is a good time to put those plans into action.
The team at Jennian Homes can guide you through this process. We even host regular building information sessions to arm you with lots of great information to help you on your journey to building your own home.
Jennian Homes has been building homes Kiwi’s love for over 34 years and remains NZ’s most awarded group home builder, with truly national coverage. Build new and take advantage of the capital gains in property value (in most regions) even between contract signing and the completion of your beautiful new Jennian Home.
Whether this is a proven plan or your own design let our team show can you the benefits of building new versus old. Take advantage of smart technologies like home automation for lighting, security and entertainment; as well as future-proofing for solutions like solar and electric vehicles.
The LVR Rules, and the exemption of new homes from the lending criteria, makes it a better option for New Zealanders to realise the dream of building their own home instead of purchasing an existing house and exposing themselves to the LVR criteria.
However, 2017 doesn’t just promise to be a good year for potential home builders.
The construction industry is an exciting option for school leavers or those considering a career change. Good quality workers will be required to help meet demand and completing an apprenticeship is an ideal foot in the door to the industry. An increase in new apprenticeships is likely as related trades begin to expand to meet growing workloads.
Aside from builders, increased demand for housing also means there will be an upturn in work for the suppliers and tradespeople who make the industry tick.
As an industry as a whole, we have a great opportunity this year nationwide to watch building and construction grow from strength to strength. Now we have to take advantage of it.
