For some, this is a million-dollar question – to build a new home or buy a new home? We know that deciding on whether to build a new home or buy instead is a crucial and often expensive decision. While everyone situation is different, here are 5 reasons as for why we believe building a new home is best!
A Home You Dreamed Of
Arguably the most significant benefit of building a new home over buying is that you can create the property of your dreams. Captivated by the trend of a large waterfall kitchen bench, wanting a secluded hangout for entertaining or an expansive alfresco? Guess what? You can get all of those features by working with a new home builder and developing a custom property.
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 a new home. But shouldn’t be the case! Were you aware that under some situations, you don’t actually need a deposit when building a new home? The Home of My Own Foundation has been developed to help first home buyers with an additional Deposit Grant.
Builders Offer Maintenance and Support
From our experiences, the majority of new home builders provide their clients and buyers with warranties. Standard new home warranties go for 12 months. If something were to go wrong and stop working, your builder would take care of that. On the other hand, if you happen to purchase an existing property, you and your household would be on your own to cover any unexpected issues.
All the Good Stuff & Gadgets
Pretty much all new homes come with inclusions. From stainless steel kitchen appliances through to bench-top features, LED lighting through to Rinnai systems and colour tiled roofs, most new homes come decked out up-to-date, tested and warranty-packed gadgets.
As stated beforehand, everyone’s circumstances and situations are different. Safe to say that for some families, buying is best, and for others, these five benefits are just the beginning of why it’s best to build a new home.
