The tax benefits of a new build

Sarah Aubrey, 28/06/2021

Creating a customised home that meets your dreams and specifications is what we do best. Whether it’s your first home, you’re upsizing or downsizing, or your home away from home, we have the skills and resources to get the job done.

The Labour government’s new housing policy package seeks to tackle the housing problem in New Zealand by increasing supply. They are incentivising investment in new developments, rather than existing housing stock. If you invest in a new build, you will be exempt from changes to the bright-line test and interest deductibility policy. 

Their aim is to make investing in new builds a more attractive option for investors and drive the demand for new houses, which will help more new homes to be built, and ease the pressure on first home buyers. 

Additionally, it will make new builds less risky in terms of returns, they require lower deposits and are better protected from interest rate rises which will be more appealing for investors. 

At Trenz Create a Home, we strive to help people like you get into their dream home. To find out how we can make it a reality for you, talk to your local Trenz franchisee who can help guide you through the process.
