DESIGN CLUB  Architecture Wellington



Xfactor houses - vertical living spaces - designer homes for small sites - all roof tops are sun decks to optimise views, daylight and to get away from everything - it's your relaxing space.

XFactor houses are stylish, practical and meet or exceed current building compliance standards. The xfactor houses range have a small footprint 30-35sq.m and can be single storey to 3 storey.

Single bed , 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom - the third bedroom can double as the study/work at home.

BUYING or SELLING a property?

Our appraisals assess the property for fitting of an Xfactor house, this includes access, services, land area, sunlight, views, and height and adjacency to neighbours.

Our appraisals assess the existing property for a new house/section to un-cover additional value. The report includes the location of a new xfactor house(s). The report is of sufficient detail for a registered valuer to provide a property valuation, with an existing property value and the proposed new values (xfactor house or bare section). 

Our reports are fixed priced and most are in the following ranges as a price guide:

Existing house and lot appraisal - $1200 plus GST, up to 2 xfactor houses located

Existing house and lot appraisal - $2400 plus GST, up to 6 xfactor houses located

Existing house and lot appraisal - $4200 plus GST, up to 12 xfactor houses located

Above 12 xfactor houses price on request.

Your Design Club consultant will confirm the price after a site visit.

Fees do not include, registered land survey, valuer or geotechnical reports, current certificate of titles and council fees. The reports are an outline of 'what could be', and do not constitute a resource consent or subdivision consent - these involve other consultants, and would be the next stage if the Owner intends to progress the proposal.
