Deciding on whether to build a new home or buy instead is a crucial and often expensive decision. For some, to build a new home or buy a new home is a million-dollar question. While everyone situation is different, here are 6 reasons as for why we believe building a new home is best!
A Home You Dreamed Of
Captivated by the trend of a large waterfall kitchen bench, wanting a secluded hangout for entertaining people or an expansive alfresco because you’re an active, outdoorsy family? Guess what? You can get all of those features by working with a new home builder and developing a custom property of your dreams.
You Can Receive $10,000 From the Government
If you happen to be an eligible first home buyer, the Australian government will give you a $10,000 grant. Yes – ten thousand dollars from the government themselves. Back in 2001, Australia’s First Home Owner Grant was introduced to help encourage and assist first home buyers in building for residential purposes.
No Deposit? No Worries!
An (at times) incorrect perceptions on a hefty deposit often turns people away from building. Were you aware that under some situations, you don’t need a deposit when building a new home? The Home of My Own Foundation was developed to help first home buyers with an additional Deposit Grant so that deposits no longer block people from building.
Builders Offer Maintenance and Support
From our experiences, most new home builders provide warranties. Standard new home warranties go for 12 months. If something were to go wrong with the infrastructure of the house, your builder would take care of that. On the other hand, if you happen to purchase an existing property, your household would be on your own to cover any issues.
All the Good Gadgets
From stainless steel kitchen appliances through to bench-top features, LED lighting and colour tiled roofs, most new homes come decked out up-to-date, tested and warranty-packed gadgets.
Now not everyone is going to be all mushy about this, but many people do feel like there’s a priceless sentimental value to building a new home. For many modern families, they stay in one household for decades.
All individuals and families’ circumstances and situations are different. For some buying is best and for others, these 6 benefits are just the start of why they are going to build their new home!
