When the options have seemed slim for those keen to get on the Wanaka property ladder in recent months, buying land and building has been a popular option.

Both the Queenstown and Wanaka property market has been pretty frustrating for some buyers that have been searching for some time before learning about buyer’s agent services.

When absentee buyers and busy people had traditionally been most keen on buying an existing home, the ability to have an advocate on the ground has made the opportunity to build a reality for a number of my clients. This option has meant that clients are getting the end result of a property which is a real box ticker, when opting for an existing home was resulting in compromise.

Having someone immersed in the community, with the contacts, working for them, makes the building process streamlined and enjoyable for the buyers. It can be a fun and rewarding process, with timely updates from an advocate on the ground acting with your best interests at heart to achieve the ultimate result.

Building technology currently offers significant advantages to the day to day comfort of living in this climate and the cost of it from an energy perspective. This along with the ability to get the configurations perfectly tailored to your lifestyle requirements, making the delay in getting a house worth the wait.

Building is definitely a Wanaka property option that has its merits for absentee buyers.
