Kiss your landlord goodbye!

Housing Problem?

Is the continually rising cost of housing in New Zealand making it hard to get into the property market? Or to live in the kind of house you want in the area you prefer?

Your options are to either buy a run-down old house in a less desirable neighbourhood and tough it out, or live in rented accommodation, effectively paying off someone else's mortgage rather than building your own wealth.

But now there's a much better way.

With Shared Living Solutions, you can buy a brand new, well-appointed house in a prime neighbourhood - simply by sharing the cost with family or friends!

A Solution for Property Ownership

As people become educated in any market they expect more. Car buyers a few years back were told electric windows, air conditioning and ABS brakes were additional extras – now they are standard.

In the housing market concerns for buyers are energy efficiency, insulation, double glazing, and no leaks. Most buyers are not yet expecting two master bedrooms with en suites, a nook, and kitchenette – but they will be, says Reagan Douglas.

Why should people live alone,   Shared Living Solutions is offering designs intended for extended family living from the outset. Privacy and comfort are a prerogative in designing for two sets of residents or owners. Reagan's legal team have developed a Property Sharing Agreement for multiple owners.

Showhome 34 Benmore Cres, The Lakes, Tauranga

The Guest House

Imagine what it would be like to live, work, play and retire in a truly purpose built subdivision. 34 Benmore Crescent is surely that place.

The House: Come home to your insulated carpeted garage where your hobby bench sits neatly in its recess along with its designer shelving. Close the insulated garage door behind you.

Stroll past the separate tiled laundry with its front loaders sitting snug in their purpose built laundry with matching over cupboards, carry on through to the polished porcelain tiled front entry and hang your hat in the cloak room.

Walk the wide hallway to the master bedroom where your super king bed leaves plenty of room for side tables and dressing units. The walk in robe has plenty of hanging space with its feature woodgrain panelling and chrome railing.

Through to the tiled en-suite reveals a metre x metre tiled and glass shower with wall hung vanity and soft close toilet suite. Light cascades through the north facing window and through the shower portal to dance on the porcelain vanity top.

Back down the hall and pass the walk in hot water cupboard with its 250 litre cylinder, pine shelving and pre-finished storage shelving.

You do not venture into the two double bedrooms reserved for children with their double robes and ample storage space. You check to see if they have picked their mess in the tiled bathroom with its 1800mm 800mm bath and its metre x metre tiled shower with 10mm thick glass door.

You open the double doors into your dining/kitchen with its vaulted ceiling and recessed lighting.

It’s mid-winter; the heat pump is quietly doing a superb job of warming the kitchen, dining and lounge. You stroll through the double doors leading to the lounge and immediately have a feeling of the best creature comforts. Its vaulted ceiling with soft lighting gives an inviting atmosphere of pure relaxation.

With no time to waste you leave the lounge and pass the dining and glance outside to your private paved courtyard where palm trees and cycads await the warmth of spring. You smile and contemplate the coming summer out there with the family and barbecue sizzling.

Dinner is cooking on the ceramic hob, a glass of wine is waiting for you on your Euro Stone bench top. You peer out your floor to ceiling window and watch the water catch the light in your statue figurine fountain amongst the array of Philodendrons, Clivias and Liglilarias.

You knock on the door leading into the flat and enter another world of creature comforts yet it feels very similar from where you have just come. The kitchenette is fully kitted out with microwave/oven, dish drawer, hob and extractor fan. The sink enjoys the same luxurious tapware as the main kitchen. Over cupboards, fridge space and a pantry complete the picture.

You open the flat’s front door to reveal a paved footpath leading back to a private car park. The sensor picks up your movement and the path and front door are awash in light.

Back indoors you wander down the hall and pass the wheelchair friendly bathroom with its tiled walls and floor, a wall hung vanity and heated towel rail complete the picture. You open the door to the hot water cupboard to reveal another storage cupboard and 90 litre cylinders just for the flat with its own separate electric metre.

Entering the double bedroom feels warm and cosy as it picks up most of the all-day sun. The double robe is fitted out with pre-finished woodgrain shelving and chrome railing. The ranch slider opens onto a private courtyard linked to the main courtyard, you open the totara gate and wander back to your side of the courtyard and in to your dining/kitchen where dinner awaits.

You are completely at home, it feels right.
