Your dream of home ownership is a reality here
It is not easy to get a firm footing on the property ladder. Saving a deposit can be difficult enough, but finding a property that meets your budget can be nearly impossible. When you do find a property you can afford there will certainly be compromises – perhaps it is smaller than you’d hoped; no off street parking; little or no garden; poorly maintained….the list goes on.
That is, unless you have a look at what Upper Hutt has to offer.
Your home-buying dollar stretches further in Upper Hutt and your dream home is within reach!
Upper Hutt is known for its quality, affordable housing. Many properties that fit within the first-home-buyers budget are three bedrooms with sizable gardens, off-street parking, and convenient to stores, schools, and the train. A commute to Wellington Central is a quick 30 minute train ride, or just over 45 minutes if you take your car during peak traffic.
