How we sell homes
Homes for direct sale
These are homes you can buy now without going through a ballot. Just contact the developer by visiting their website and arrange to view the home or display suite. The developer will check that you are a pre-qualified KiwiBuild buyer and you can start the process of buying your home.
Homes for ballot
KiwiBuild sells homes through a ballot system when we believe there will be a large number of interested buyers. The ballot means every pre-qualified KiwiBuild buyer has an equal chance at the opportunity to buy a home. Before entering the ballot, you should visit the development and talk to the real estate agent or developer about the homes. You can enter as many ballots as you like, but you can only win one ballot.
Buying off the plans or buying a completed home
KiwiBuild homes are offered for ballot at different stages of construction. Some people may wish to buy a home off the plans which means you secure the home, and then move in once it is completed. Others may choose to wait to buy until the homes are completed or nearing completion. It’s completely up to you when you choose to enter a ballot for a KiwiBuild home, or whether you buy a home through a direct sale.
