First Home Buyers

Meet Georgia and Brad. Faringdon’s youngest home owners to date. 

“We still can’t quite believe that when we did the numbers, it worked out better for us to build than to buy an older property.”

Being first home buyers they had a lot on their mind. The thought of being able to self build instead of buying second hand wasn’t really in the frame until they had a chat with Faringdon’s Marketing Director, Bruce Harvey.

“This is our first home and we still can’t quite believe that when we did the numbers, it worked out better for us to build than to buy an older property,” Georgia says. There are many benefits that first home buyers can enjoy if they choose to self build their home.

“When we combined the benefits of a lower deposit on a new home and being able to draw down the maximum from our KiwiSaver, we had to check the numbers again and again because it just seemed like it was too good to be true. But here we are. Our first home and everything is brand new and just the way we wanted it. Having flatted up until now, we didn’t have a lot of stuff, so it’s a lot of fun slowly filling it up with furniture.”
