With a range of townships to choose from, there is a range of job opportunities that offer a healthy work/lifestyle balance away from New Zealand’s big cities. Living in the Coromandel, you will also be a short drive away from many of New Zealand’s most beautiful attractions. Cathedral Cove, Whitianga, Whangamata and Thames are all close by, offering you plenty of choice between rural, suburban and coastal living. Whether you are looking to purchase a home to renovate and enjoy for years to come or to create a valuable property asset, a local Refresh Renovations specialist can guide you through the process.

What is the Coromandel property market like?

As a sought after location with rising house prices, the Coromandel is a location many property investors turn to. Purchasing a property, adding value to it through renovation and landscaping work and then selling it for a higher price is an attractive option for those who can afford it. Of course, if you are looking for interesting architecture, a beachside lifestyle as well as a long-term home and location that has plenty to offer, the Coromandel has you covered too. Purchasing an affordable home and renovating it as needed can also provide you with a more affordable approach to creating a home in the region.

The coromandel boasts a huge range of house and property types; including villas, townhouses, new builds, sustainable designs, coastal cottages, lifestyle dwellings, architecture designs, modern luxury houses and holiday homes.  

Renovating vs. relocating

If you are already settled in the Coromandel but your property is not meeting your needs, you are likely in the process of deliberating whether to renovate or relocate. If your current neighbourhood isn’t meeting your needs the obvious answer is to relocate. However, if it’s simply the size, functionality or appearance of your home that has you looking at your options, renovating could be an ideal solution. Growing families can benefit from a home extension or addition, poor functionality can be solved through a new layout and aesthetics can easily be improved.

Coromandel’s renovation regulations

Before launching into your renovation, make sure you have met the local regulations. This might be gaining permission to carry out work on a heritage listed property, applying for planning permission or a building permit. A local Refresh Renovations consultant can take care of these applications for you.

Coromandel Climate

The Coromandel tends to have warm summers and mild winters. However, certain areas within the region have been prone to flooding. A Refresh specialist can advise you on whether your home will benefit from elevation, the use of extra-water-resistant materials, and prioritising making certain areas of your home watertight.
