The current housing boom is over-represented in media stories on a daily basis, but Navigation Homes Pukekohe Franchise owners Nathan Hall and Ryan Keegan believe that the people in the greater Pukekohe area have one massive advantage when it comes to building their dream home and that is the availability of quality land to build on.
“We have land available, lots of it, and Navigation Homes can help folks build their dream home on it, they just need to know where to look. Under the unitary plan, a lot of Pukekohe, especially that closest to the town center is zoned for development that wasn’t possible 10 or so years ago. The opportunity now exists for current homeowners with sections over 700m2 to sub divide and rebuild a newer, modern home to suit their lifestyle whilst creating additional capital from the sale of part of their section. This is turn creates a section where a new family can build their own dream home, in a well-established suburb with existing facilities, creating a win-win situation for everyone.” says Nathan.
Proud to have been providing quality homes for over 13 years, Navigation Homes was established by locals Aaron and Michelle Hall. The franchise is now owned by their son Nathan and his business partner Ryan and backed with an expert, professional team with over 40 years’ experience in the industry. Over the years, they have developed a reputation for quality builds, attention to detail, and exceptional communication throughout the whole process. They are registered Master Builders and every home comes with the 10-Year Registered Master Builder Guarantee. Combine this with the 50-Year Navigation Homes Structural Guarantee and a 365-day maintenance period, and a home built by Navigation is the right choice.
“Our expertise is in project management to ensure what is delivered is delivered on time, in full and meets all the quality requirements. From concept to design, working drawings, consent lodgment and construction process, we are here to make sure everything goes according to plan, and the boxes are ticked and completed and identifying any potential issues before they arise.
“We know how stressful the home building process can be, especially if you are considering subdividing existing sections where years of toil and love have created gardens that match the character of both the house and the homeowner. Involving us in the early stages means we can plan with the homeowner and their family if necessary and discuss options that retain as much of the existing area characteristics as possible, even with the new builds. We would encourage anyone with a section over 700m2 to get in touch with us, and see what the possibilities are!”
There is no denying that demand for land is increasing and will continue to do so. Take a drive through the leafy suburbs of inner Auckland suburbs and you will see more and more sections are being split up and re-developed often with multiple dwellings or modern duplexes. Grand old villas are often removed and relocated and renovated to start a new life.
The Award-Winning team at Navigation Homes believe that homeowners in Pukekohe could learn from the experiences of other Auckland areas and apply them to their advantage. Investigating their own options before the choice is removed from them or building starts next door.
“Houses age, just like people and become tired and beset with problems, a house built 40-50 years ago or even older has the potential to be drafty, badly positioned on the section and not suitable to the needs and wants of the homeowners of today. The land the house is built on though, could pave the way for a whole new world of opportunity. Usually, at little extra total cost by leveraging the excess land on the section and we would invite anyone to call us, get in touch and see what their options are. It is a free service and completely without obligation and we are able to explain it to them in language that is easy to understand. Who knows, it could open up a whole world of possibilities that they hadn’t even thought of.”
