Essential Questions For Your Builderheart

One key decision to make when becoming a homeowner is, do you want to buy or build?

While buying an established home can be quicker and more convenient, a new home build allows you to create and customise your home right from the beginning. Being a homeowner has always been the great Australian dream and by building its truly is your vision solidified in bricks and mortar. So, when it comes to getting something that is uniquely yours, building will always be the way to go!

Building your new home gives you complete creative control – not only over the little things like door handles – but big decisions including how you home sits on the block and making allowances for future decision making such as a shed or a pool! This contrasts with the decisions to be made when purchasing an established home. Maybe the layout is perfect, but you don’t like the exteriors. Or perhaps it’s a great house but the bedrooms are too small for your needs. Changing the layout is not always possible and renovations per square meter are often more costly and time consuming than building from scratch. Building your new home is often considered more cost effective in both time and money.

Here at Hunter Homes, we are proud to offer a large range of designs that have been handcrafted to be flexible, spacious, and affordable, with single storey, double storey, acreage, and split-level plans available for you to explore and make your own.

  • So you have found the perfect floor plan, a builder you trust, the design fits with in your budget and you have incredible inclusions? 
  • Now it’s time to ask yourself what other costs do I need to consider when building?

While some people may have purchased a turn key product, if you haven’t, other costs to consider when building can be: landscaping, fencing, window furnishings a letter box and clothes line. While some of these items may seem trivial, its important to be mindful and keep an eye on costs so you are aware of where you are at.

The other great things about building from scratch is the builder’s warranty that comes with your new home, like you get when building with us here at Hunter Homes. Your builders warranty offers you peace of mind that even if you come across any surprises after you move in, it’ll be fixed at the builder’s expense. This eliminates the common risks buyers face when moving into an established, older home which may have a few skeletons in the closet.
