Too easy! We’re not too big that you’re treated as a number but big enough to be able to offer you competitive pricing and top quality service. We’re not owned by investment companies or overseas interests. Each of our Licence Holders are owner-operators, and treat each of our customer’s home builds as if they were building their own home.
A list of showhomes and opening hours are available on our website.
Yes you can, however, our plans have been priced to ensure they're the most cost-effective way of building and option for you.
This is mainly because all our home build plans are pre-costed and designed. This allows us to optimise the most cost-effective ways of building and reducing waste. Also, due to the volume of houses we build, we have negotiated extremely favourable rates with suppliers.
The building consent process (required before we can start your build) can take up to 4-6 weeks. If you require a resource consent then allow another 6-8 weeks. This is all dependant on the complexity of the consents required. In general you should allow 5-6 months from the time you receive your plans to the completion of your new home.
Yes. The majority of our plans can be altered to another cladding. For example, one of our brick houses can be changed and be clad with Weatherboard. There are exceptions and it does depend on the house design so talk with your local Latitude Homes team about options.
The price of a home build will vary throughout New Zealand due to the varying labour costs and distances that contractors may need to travel. You can discuss this with your local Latitude Homes team.
Yes. We offer varying options from a kitset -
We supply all the material required to build your new home and you organise the builder and tradies to complete the work; or
A shell only option where we would build to a lock up stage and you complete the rest of the home build
Your local Latitude Homes team can provide you with a full quote for your new build project with all associated costs.
Give your local Latitude Homes team a call and they will be able to tell you whether the desired house design will fit on your section. Once this is established, a building cost estimate will be provided. From there a plan deposit is required and a set of preliminary plan drawings will be completed showing you how the house sits on your section and a more accurate costing will be provided. Once you are happy with all this, a building contract will be entered into and a building consent application will be submitted with your local Council.
Weather permitting, 1-2 weeks after the building consent is issued the excavation of your site can start. Once excavation is completed works can start on the foundations.
This can vary from site to site and will depend on your home build requirements. Our local Latitude Homes representatives can supply you with a list of additional costs during the estimating process.
The payment schedule is worked on the stages of the build process and bank lending criteria. Talk to your local Latitude Homes representative for further details.
All it takes is a deposit from as little as $3500 to get your plans underway. Give us a call and we can get things started.
