Some Guidance on New Homes
Deciding to build a new home is super exciting! Before you go signing the papers and selecting the colours of your new kitchen or designing the layout of the home, it’s important to do your research. Visiting display homes is a great first step on your building journey, this may determine your choice of builder, however it can also be quite overwhelming.
To help you make the most out of visiting display homes and make it a little easier, we’ve put together some tips to make it a valuable experience.
Do your research – compare the inclusions and exclusions and the quality of those fixtures and fittings. As a general rule most builders work to a square metre rate. For example if the base home without the fancy add-ons is valued at $180,000 and it’s 300m2 then the cost per m2 = $600/m2. Other builders may come in over that figure and that’s okay. You typically get what you pay for in this industry.
Don’t add a feature because it’s trendy. Trends change and this could impact the final selling price of your home. The average Australian spends 3-5 years in their first home. Build it with a neutral colour scheme and add pops of colour with your linen and accessories.
Ask the builder how long they have been building for? Ask to see their QBCC No. and Insurance. Ask what other dwellings they have built in the neighborhood or further afield. If they’ve got a good reputation then you are safe. Enjoy your new home!
