Why should first home buyers consider building at Faringdon? 
Here's 5 reasons: 

First Home buyers, why buy second-hand when you can afford to build new in Faringdon? Talk to us about building your own home in Christchurch's most sought after residential development.

  1. 1.

    Lower deposit

    Restrictions on loan-to-value (LVR) ratios are different for new builds. Chat to your broker or bank as you may be able to build new with a smaller deposit than if you were buying second hand.

  2. 2.

    Low maintenance

    New homes are much easier to take care of. You won’t be spending your leisure hours doing DIY touch ups. Instead you can get out and enjoy your free time.

  3. 3.

    Masterbuild guarantee

    Your new home comes with a 10 year guarantee with a registered master builder. It covers you for defects in materials and defects in workmanship, and structural defects, and further included is rot and fungal decay cover.

  4. 4.

    An energy efficient, modern and healthy home

    With sections sizes starting from 450m2 and fixed pricing, building in Faringdon is often more affordable than buying existing homes at auction or deadline sales.

    When you build new, you know that you are investing in a warm and healthy home which will help reduce living costs and provide a great Return on Investment.


First home buyers find building hands down a better investment for many reasons. It’s also the way to go if you want a house that is in pristine condition and built to your specifications. 

We’ve partnered with Canterbury’s leading home builders and can introduce you to the team that would fit your needs best. Have a look at one of our show home builders. Or you are welcome to use your own team.
