Auckland Builders Are Busy!

As pretty much everyone in New Zealand knows, houses in Auckland have been popping up left, right and center. Everywhere you turn, you will see construction, builds and new homes all around. Every building and renovation company is swamped with work and struggling to keep up. The housing crisis can be attributed to a number of factors, including very large numbers of immigrants coming to New Zealand in recent years. Builders have been doing everything they can to keep up with demand, but the demand keeps increasing. The government has announced plans to build 34,000 more homes in Auckland over the next 10 years to try to keep up with demand. What are some risks and issues this causes? This kind of demand and shortage creates a lot of surrounding issues such as very high pricing, both for houses and services such as building, lower quality of the work, due to them rushing to meet more demand and underqualified and unqualified workers being hired as there are just not enough qualified workers to do all the work. Many people are cross qualifying to make more money. Where there is a market there is business and as per the numbers above you can see that the building industry offers a lot of opportunity to many that want to earn more money. However, the negative side of this is that some individuals are less qualified and experienced and tend to charge the same amount as the experienced and qualified ones, while providing work that is not to the same level. What can you do to avoid these risks? There are several...

Hobson Street Home Renovation Project

Hobson Street Home Renovation Project
Our North Shore team recently completed an interior renovation of a home on Hobson St in Auckland City. This home, unlike a lot of the houses we do, wasn’t falling apart, but the owners felt it was time to bring some new life to the house and change the way it looked inside. It was definitely a dated look. Before As you can see, it was very plain inside and more than likely the original interior from when the house was first built. The whites in the bathroom were starting to get discolored, the carpet was getting dirty and a general makeover was due. Luckily for the owners, we were on the case! After We made use of various textures to add color and life to the home, from the dark wood floors to the marble look walls in the kitchen and bathroom. We introduced a few select colors to make a nice modern palette which has a bit more life than just painting everything white. New furniture was introduced throughout, finishing off the new theme. Would you like to renovate your home interior? If the time has come for you to begin rebuilding your home, here are some things to consider. Budget should be one of the very first things to take into account. Without a budget that will cover the cost of a renovation, you will not get very far. And you certainly don’t want to be left with a half done project, holes in your walls or uninstalled bathroomware! Time frame is something else that you should consider. Make sure you can live around the project...
