Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

It will be many years before the Housing market reaches a satisfactory balance and the main requirement is to satisfy the Retirement housing sector which will in turn frees up the larger family homes where the family have left home and the owners are looking to down size. Our expansion potential is huge as shown on page 8 of our Business plan (attached) Securing the Church property next door would increase our property size to a total of approximately 30,000 sqm , 7.4 Acres

Competition / Market:

Very little. There is a general housing shortage in New Zealand which was initially to be addressed through the Governments "Kiwibuild" program which was unfortunately a dismal failure due to the restrictions created by a limited construction industry workforce. The main factor contributing to the housing shortage is the large number of the Baby Boomer generation who are now looking to downsize or move to Retirement Lifestyle Villages. That transition is currently happening which is creating an increase in demand for quality lifestlye Retirement options. The competition are currently all building as many housing options as are possible to fill the gap which is estimated at approximately 40,000 additional housing units
