5 reasons why you should build your next home

There’s nothing quite like walking into a home that was built just for you. Building a newly built home offers home buyers a heap of benefits that you wouldn’t often get from buying an existing one. Here’s a few reasons why you should consider building your next home.

1. You’ll invest in a home that ticks all your boxes

Many home buyers end up settling on a property that doesn’t quite tick all their boxes. Building a new home gives home owners the ability to create a purpose built home that fits their families’ lifestyles and needs. Whether you’re wanting a bigger kitchen, two lounges, or three bathrooms to accommodate your family - building a custom built home will give you the opportunity to get exactly what you want out of your new home.

2. You’ll have more control over design decisions

From the floor plans, to the design and interior decisions, you will have more control over every aspect of the home-building process. If you’re wanting a major feature wall in your dining room, or an island in your kitchen, the choice is completely yours. Designing and building a new home means you can choose colours, styles and design that fit perfectly with your personal preference and style.

3. You’ll have a new home that’s up to the latest building standards

Building a home means you’ll have a brand new home that is up to date with the latest building standards. When buying an existing home, you have the risk of buying one that isn’t aligned with current building standards and regulations. This can result in you having to invest more money into the home to bring it up to standard. Having a newly built home on the other hand, can make you rest easy knowing that professional builders are in charge of the building process and will adhere to current building-codes.

4. You’ll need less maintenance

A brand new home will have fresh new furnishings, fittings, appliances. Most of them will have guarantees and because they’re new, they’ll have a longer lifetime. A home with these newly fitted materials will require less maintenance, and thus less cost over the first years of ownership.

5. You’ll have lower monthly energy bills

Similar to needing less maintenance, your newly built home will also have lower monthly energy bills. As the decision maker of your new home’s fittings, you have the opportunity to select energy efficient fixtures that can help reduce your energy costs throughout your time living in the house.
