New Zealand Bunnings Has A Flat Pack Two Bedroom House That Costs Less Than $100,000

It's no secret that some parts of Australia are incredibly difficult to buy property in.

Some people just can't seem to afford in the areas that they'd like to buy in and are left either settling for something and somewhere cheaper, or just sticking to renting because it's easier.

But you'd have a far easier job getting the home of your dreams if you lived in New Zealand because Bunnings has a flat pack home that costs less than $100,000.

It's certainly no Ikea flat pack system as you still need a registered builder to construct the home, but for around $86,000 for a two-bedroom place with all the finishings, it's hardly a bad deal.

The home comes with COLORSTEEL roofing, Mitsubishi heat pumps, Kaboodle kitchens, Omega kitchen appliances, Stein showers, vanities and toilet suites, and Sengled security cameras and lighting. You obviously have to furnish it once it's done.

More than 50 have already been sold in New Zealand - showing there's a pretty decent appetite for the easy to install home.

The only other catch is you also have to buy the land that the home will eventually go on - which could push up the final bill at the end of the day.

The homes are produced by Clever Living Co, a company in the Bunnings umbrella.

The website says: "Clever Living Co. homes are a fast and cost-effective choice for a high-standard home.You'll find a plan and style to suit your requirements with spacious open-plan living and easy indoor/outdoor flow.

"Choose from 2 bedrooms or go as large as 4 bedrooms. All designs have multiple-use approval certificates and are fully quantity surveyed, so consents are straight forward and costs are clear from the get go."

A property commentator told the NZ Herald while the idea is cool, don't expect every single person wanting to get into the property market to be buying these bad boys.

Alistair Helm said: "I think they're the kind of things that would add to accommodation facilities of a second dwelling outside of the major cities.

"I don't think this is a solution in itself to high-density living in the city from that point of view, that will be solved by what I hope is off-site modular construction which is the way of the future."

Sure, it might not be for everyone but it's certainly a cost-effective way of getting your first property.
