    Should I Rent, Buy or Build a New Home?

    First, you need to figure out what you’re looking to accomplish with a new home. Ask yourself a few of these questions to help narrow down the search:

    • How long do I plan to stay in this location?
    • How many people will I be living with?
    • Do I have pets to take care of?
    • What is my budget?

    Once you’ve asked and answered these questions, you can move on to deciding whether or not renting, buying or building a home is right for you or your family.


    Renting comes with its own benefits that buying and building can’t provide. The most notable benefit is that you’re not locked into your decision and can decide to move on to a new home at a later date of your choice.

    Renting can also be a great temporary option if you need a place to stay while you wait to find Tweed Coast home builders to build your dream home.

    The biggest downsides to renting is that you may not have the same flexibility to customise your living space as you would by buying or building a home.


    If you have a place to live already but are looking to own a new place, buying a house can be a great option. You’ll be able to have a place to call your own, can alter the interior, exterior and landscape around the house.

    The downside to buying a home is that you won’t have the same flexibility in the home’s layout as you would by building your home from the ground up with a quality Tweed Coast home builder.
