Preferring The ‘New’ Over The ‘Old’

These days, more and more investors are becoming accustomed to ‘new’ versus ‘old’ when it comes to the purchasing of investment properties. A few of the supporting reasons that ‘new’ triumphs include:

  • Major savings on Stamp Duty
  • Gearing Laws which help to reduce holding costs
  • Extended periods without maintenance issues or unexpected costs
  • That ‘new house’ feel

Thanks to the experience that thousands of new home builds, as well as, other property types, CPGP Investments can assure investors that our builders ensure construction quality, superior building processes, as well as an assurance that there is a healthy respect for expectations that we maintain.
