Are you a first home buyer or first time builder? Thinking that building new or buying in the Sydney market is just too darn expensive? Think again!
With new government initiatives and assistance helping newbies into the property market, that vision of stepping into a brand new home that is all yours is achievable!
With that said, a lot goes into building a home for the first time. Where do you start? What should you be looking for? Is this inclusion something that I’m actually going to care about 1 year into your new home? It can be an overwhelming experience.
At Hoot Homes, we want to help give you all the information you need before putting down that hard-earned homebuilding cash. So, let’s get into a few things that you need to know before throwing yourself into the excitement of first-time building!
First thing’s first…
To put that question in another light: Are the benefits of building a home worth that extra effort of actually having to, you know, organise for it to be built?
Short answer, absolutely. While it’s definitely possible to get a great ready-built home, with an older home comes extra maintenance and potential renovations to be done down the track. By building new, you can choose a modern home design on trend with designer inclusions that compliments you and your lifestyle, winning! Enjoy all the fun stuff like planning your colour scheme, fittings and fixtures. Your new home is yours and yours only!
Other benefits include:
Avoiding the potential hazards and annoyances of trying to renovate an older property.
If the land you’re purchasing to build on is worth less than $300,000, you can avoid paying duty, which is a massive relief on your wallet.
You can avoid paying extra money for inclusions you might not actually need or care about. Having solid gold fittings in the bathroom may be neat and all, but you might not be quite as thrilled if that little aesthetic touch is costing you the price of a 2nd-hand car.
Many builders include a Structural Guarantee which can give you peace of mind!
