Property Development Under MDRS – Online Webinar

Learn more about MDRS and how you can create wealth from developing your land in Auckland at our online seminar event.

When: Thursday 14 July, 6.30 pm

Where: Conducted online. Join us from the comfort of your own home.

Property has always been the favoured investment option for New Zealanders, and Auckland’s housing shortage, combined with the new MDRS regulations, provides exceptional development opportunities.

MDRS and the Auckland Unitary Plan allows for greater intensification in our city and has presented new opportunities for land owners to generate wealth through building and subdividing.

Ashcroft Homes has created a range of standard plans, specifically with these regulations in mind. These homes are designed to maximise living while making the very best use of the land they occupy, to deliver greater returns for the landowner.

Attend this seminar to hear tips, insights and case studies from Ashcroft’s Property Development Consultants and Ashcroft’s Planning and Subdivision Manager.  Nick Aitken from Rocket Mortgages will also present at this event providing information around funding for development projects.  And we’ll have time for a Q&A session at the end of the webinar.

It’s vitally important to get the right information before you start

By joining this seminar you’ll learn about MDRS:

  • What is MDRS and what does it  meana for Auckland land owners?
  • What’s changing and why?
  • Where is the intensification going to occur?
  • What are the limits and what properties may be excluded?

Learn about Property Development

  • The process of subdividing – what it entails and associated costs
  • Real life examples of project costs & returns
  • Options for financing your development project

What Ashcroft Homes customers say about us

  • T Eason
    We used Ashcroft to subdivide and build a new house on our section in Auckland. They have been fantastic! It was the first time we have done this and are really happy with how it all went. The team explained each part of process thoroughly and they don't mind answering my multiple questions. They are very good value and I feel provided us with a high spec and good looking house. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to build in future.

  • C Nguyen
    We were thrilled with the quality inspection that the Ashcroft team carried out after handover. The Ashcroft Maintenance Manager did a very thorough inspection, and has an eye for details. This level of attention, post build, was excellent.

    Shane and I are glad that we chose to partner with Ashcroft Homes, the process was straight forward and we felt supported the whole way. The quality of the build is so good that our home is now being entered into the Master Builder House of Year competition. We would have no hesitation recommending Ashcroft Homes to others and would happily build with them again. We love our new home!

    Thank you for building our beautiful first home. We have really enjoyed the build process with Ashcroft and we appreciated the weekly updates! We're stoked with the look and quality of the finished house and will recommend you to others.

  • I Morrow
    The thing that surprised me most about Ashcroft Homes is how the staff really care about the success of my project, and how they look for ways to improve my profits. It’s not just my Property Development Consultant, it’s all the staff. I no longer feel like it’s just me running the project -  it definitely feels like there’s now a big team of us working together to get the very best outcome.

  • Alessandro Meda
    We really liked working with our Ashcroft Property Development Consultant. They were really transparent and explained the process clearly.  I really liked that we received regular updates and how the team worked really hard to get my building consent approval through as quickly as possible.

  • P Sampson
    Being a builder myself who is fussy, quality was key for me. This was a smooth build without any major surprises. I enjoyed partnering with Ashcroft to produce a build we're all proud of.

  • Chau & Stella
    Today was a great day for us, with handover of two beautifully constructed Kingstons. We are humbled by the grand looks and impressed with the quality of work. We waited for 20 years before deciding to build and Ashcroft was the right choice. To all the staff members at Ashcroft who have worked hard behind the scene, we would like to say thank you very much for your contribution towards the success of this project.

  • M Perera
    Ashcroft Homes has been my best option when it came to building my house. They had the perfect plan to fit my section and budget, briefed me on the full process and kept me updated throughout. The team at Ashcroft Homes is professional, prompt and very supportive. Looked after me from the very 1st phone call to receiving keys to my new house + a further 10 years guarantee! The build quality and finish is excellent and they are always polite and prompt for any maintenance needs even after the build has completed. I am thrilled I am in safe hands and will definitely choose Ashcroft Homes if I am building another house. I highly recommend Ashcroft Homes to anyone!

  • Paul & Raquela
    Ashcroft Homes responded very quickly and helped us with everything we needed. We loved the consultations about colour and other choices. The pre-selected schemes made it easy and they looked great. We'd sum up our overall experience with Ashcroft, as straightforward and enjoyable!

  • I Fraser
    I wanted to learn more about property development so went along to a free seminar which they hosted. I was really impressed with their team and depth of knowledge. I learned some new aspects of development and it's really got me thinking about my first property development. I'm also impressed with their new ideas for housing solutions in Auckland. We're running out of decent space, yet these guys have new ideas. Worth heading along for the evening yourself.

  • Rui & Benedict
    Whenever we had a subdivision question, big or small, the subdivision team were able to answer with great details, references or even drawings. Quite simply, they helped us to understand the intricacies and the jargon!

  • J & M Kommunuri
    We really love our family home; both its layout and the general feel of it. The people at Ashcroft Homes are honest, reliable and very professional. The construction went well and according to the plan. Dealing with Ashcroft Homes has really been a nice experience. I have already recommended Ashcroft Homes to my colleague at work.

  • Douglas Kyle
    Ashcroft Homes were very helpful and nothing was a problem for them. They made sure we all worked together as one big team – everyone was very flexible. In the end nothing went wrong at all, it was a brilliant build. I would definitely recommend Ashcroft Homes to our family and friends.

  • Maria Rigby and Craig Earsman
    We found Ashcroft Homes to be awesome, right from the word go. They supported us through the entire build process, always taking time to explain what they were doing and why. They’re honest and reliable, and you can trust they’ll follow through on their word. We think Ashcroft Homes build very good quality homes for a lot less than their competitors. We’re so happy with the finished product and we recommended them to friends who are now also building with Ashcroft. If we were ever in a position to build again, Ashcroft would be the first ones we would call!Thanks so much for everything, we love our house so much!
