A Christchurch house for sale under the Government’s Kiwibuild scheme failed to shift on the private market last year.

The two-bedroom house at 5 Te Rito St in Marshland, developed by Mike Greer Homes, was put on the market off plans for $459,000 in June last year. It was withdrawn from the market in November and then relisted under the KiwiBuild scheme for the same price this month.

The house is one of five for sale in Canterbury under the Government’s KiwiBuild scheme, which aims to build 100,000 affordable homes across New Zealand over the next 10 years.
