Classic Builders have released three KiwiBuild homes in the development Kotātā Heights  in Morningside, Whangarei. Of these three, one is a two bedroom and two are three bedrooms. Land sizes vary from 534m2 to 1301m2, with the house and land package on 1301m2 of land expected to be snapped up quickly.

When Classic Builders launched eight KiwiBuild houses in Tauranga, four were under contract to be sold within two days of the houses being released. The KiwiBuild homes are a combination of two and three bedroom brick, standalone homes with internal access garages, elevated and sunny outlooks, and semi-rural and harbour views.

Kotātā Heights is a new development within walking distance of Whangarei’s city centre. It’s close to schools, Whangarei Hospital, the city’s bus routes and NorthTec. The brand new KiwiBuild homes are priced at $460,000 for a two-bedroom and $500,000 for a three-bedroom home, compared to the average house price in Whangarei of $561,000.

Whangarei house prices rose 10% in the past year, which is one of the fastest rates of increase in the country, and the city’s population is growing by nearly two thousand people a year. Head of KiwiBuild Delivery, Helen O’Sullivan says, “Whangarei needs affordable homes. KiwiBuild is working with Classic Builders to build Kotātā Heights, providing a high quality, centrally located, and affordable option for local first time buyers, and for people who are considering moving to Whangarei for the lifestyle.

“These homes will be offered to eligible KiwiBuild buyers by direct sale, meaning you can start the process of buying your home immediately and you won’t have to go through a ballot”. KiwiBuild homes are sold at fixed prices. In Northland, priced under $500,000. There’s no ballot on the KiwiBuild homes in Whangarei so you can buy immediately.
