Products are primarily marketed for sale as design & building (D&B) and / or house & land (H&L):

Design and Build (D&B): 

Through this channel, the home owner may or may not own a site / lot at the time of enquiry. Platinum Homes will work with the home owner to select and design a home to suit their needs. This usually starts by selecting (in consultation with a sales consultant) one of the 70+ base designs, all of which can then be re-tailored or changed to suit the customer’s requirements. Platinum Homes can often help the customer find a site.

House & Land packages (H&L):

This is refers to a specific site / lot where Platinum Homes has a ‘option’ to sell that site / lot with a pre-determined home design to be built once the package is sold. This is an ‘easy’ way to buy new where the customer does not have to make as many decisions as D&B as the basic home is already designed – they choose some of the finishes (although they can make changes / alterations if necessary). H&L offer includes lots within a subdivision where Platinum Homes has the right to build.


Platinum Homes does not ‘spec’ build homes as part of the standard business model. Spec building is where the building company pre-builds the home with the intention to sell (as existing real estate). This is considered to be a high-risk business model requiring significant capital.


  • Platinum Homes (NZ) operates a Group Marketing Fund (GMF) which invests more than $800K annually in support of the brand.
  • Platinum Homes website attracts more than 16,000 unique users per month
  • Statistically, more than half of Platinum Homes entire core target market makes an enquiries with Platinum Homes by way of either a showhome visit or phone/online enquiry.

Unique Selling Points (USPs):

  • Value: Platinum Homes operates the Best Value Promise (BVP) – we know from collated third party statistics, that Platinum Homes offers one of the best price-to-size value offers available from the top 10 group home building companies.
  • Quality: Platinum Homes build homes that exceed the quality of comparative group housing companies – this is reflected in the building method, extra attention to detail and the materials used.
  • Design: Platinum Homes are in the process of updating their plans range and will focussing increasingly on marketing the design attributes of the product. 
  • Stability: Platinum Homes is one of New Zealand’s longer established new home companies. Platinum also operates an assurance system that uses guarantees provided by third parties (Homefirst Guarantee).
