At some stage, homebuyers are faced with the important decision of whether to buy an existing property or build a new home of their own. But in most cases, building can be the better option in the long run.
Here's why building can be the best option:
You can save money by building. If you’re a first-time homebuyer, you might be eligible for the First Home Owner Grant, and for new homes you’ll only pay stamp duty on the cost of the land rather than the building itself.
New homes require less ongoing maintenance than established homes. So, with a new build, you’ll have more time up your sleeve and money in your pocket to enjoy your weekends.
Building allows you to get what you want in a home from the beginning, without having to spend months or even years patching up renovation and decorating quirks previous owners might’ve left behind.
Your new home can be as unique as you. By choosing the colour of walls and tiles, bathroom fittings, kitchen appliances, and landscaping, you’ll be able to custom fit a home and garden design to match your lifestyle and tastes now and into the future. Visit our display homes for inspiration
