For anyone that has ever wandered around a display home in complete awe, you may not be aware that a few of the beautiful features and fittings may be additional upgrades!
This means additional costs to the base price advertised.
If the price of a home seems worryingly low, there is probably a reason for this!
But don’t freak out. We’re here to break this down for you.
If you are thinking of building new but not sure what home Inclusions are or what questions to ask when doing your research, then we’re here to help.
First things first, let’s take a look at what you should know about home inclusions!
When many home builders and designers talk about the “amazing inclusions” they offer, it is important to know what exactly is included in your basic home package vs. what is an upgraded item.
Inclusions are features, fixtures and appliances that are included in the initial base price of a home. This can range from the ceiling height to laundry tubs, stairs, electrical, flooring and more! These are also generally referred to as standard inclusions; separating them from upgrades which will incur additional costs.
When viewing a display home, it is important to realise that the display home is likely to showcase many upgraded features and inclusions, in addition to the standard inclusions.
For most builders, standard inclusions don’t tend to cover:
• Cooling and Heating Systems
• Excavation of excess stone
• Excess Soil Removal
Although this can come as a little bit of a shock, it is important to understand your standard inclusions.
When choosing the right home builder or home design, it is important to know what standard inclusions are included in the price.
To help you get started, here is a list of some great inclusions to check whether they are included as standard or upgrades:
• Service connections, such as Water, Gas, Electricity, Sewer, Stormwaters and more!
• Rainwater tanks
• Ceiling insulation for ceilings with a roof over, such as Garage, Porch and Outdoor Leisure.
• Wall insulations
• Featured window splashback in your kitchen
• Brand new Dishwasher and kitchen appliances
Many builders will advertise low pricing, which can actually mean that the level of inclusions you’re receiving with that price may not be that great! This can mean that you end up paying more for the upgrades that are important to you and your home.
Good news is, Hoot Homes Inclusions are pretty darn good for First Home Buyers.
When speaking to a consultant with any home builder, don’t be afraid to ask questions! Ask for a list of Inclusions and make sure you check what fixtures and features of the display home are actually included. Do your research.
