The benefits of building a new home over buying an established home
Are you considering buying a new home? Have been looking around to see what is on the market and there is nothing that really suits you? Have you thought about building a new home? Here we discuss the benefits and advantages of building a new home of your dreams.
Some people think that building a new home can be daunting. However on the flip side there are many advantages of building a new home. Here we discuss some of them.
You will be the first to live in it
One of the best things about building a new home, is that no one else has lived in it. There is nothing that beats the thrill of having something brand new. Like a new dress or a new car, moving into a new home is just the same, only much more exciting. It is so much fun, working out how all the appliances operate. Trying to figure out which switch turns on the lounge room lights. What about the smell of freshly laid new carpet and having the first shower in your luxurious ensuite?
When you build a new home, you can ensure you will have the most modern home in your neighbourhood. A newly built home can include all the latest in contemporary design. Perhaps you would like to have a skillion roof line, or a tiled feature entry. What about a beautiful front door to welcome your guests? You will even have the opportunity to build a beautiful pool and outdoor entertaining areas, for endless hours of summer fun. Modern styling, contemporary and innovative designs, all can be planned and incorporated into your new home.
Design the layout to suit you
One of the biggest problems when looking at established homes is often the floor plan is not quite right. Perhaps the layout doesn’t work with the way you and your family live. The laundry is in the wrong place, or the main bathroom is too far away from the bedrooms. When you build a new home, you can design exactly what you want to suit your family’s lifestyle. New home builder Perry Homes has over fifty single and two storey designs to suit everyone. However, if you can’t find what you are looking for, they are happy to take your ideas and turn them into your dream home.
Choose your own colours and finishes
Have you fallen in love with a stunning freestanding bathtub and absolutely must have it in your home? What about the stylish European taps you saw in the latest home design magazine? Then there is that soft luxurious woolen carpet you can just see yourself lounging on. When you build a new home you can incorporate all of these items into your own colour scheme. This is part of the colour selection process and is often the most exciting part of building a new home.

When you build a new home with a project builder such as Perry Homes, you can take advantage of their enormous buying power to save you money.

Sustainability and Energy Efficiency
Most people today are very aware of the need for sustainability in our lives. We are all hearing about the rising cost of electricity and how that impacts on the family budget. When you are building a new home you can include a number items to ensure you have an energy efficient home. You can choose the aspect of your land and design of your home to ensure it is more energy efficient. Lighting and insulation will also impact on the power consumption of your home. Don’t forget you can choose energy and water efficient appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and dishwashers to help reduce these costs.
Minimal repairs and maintenance
Building a new home will also save you on the cost of repairs and maintenance, of an established home. When you build a new home with a respected builder, there is usually a maintenance period from the time of handover. This gives all buyers the peace of mind, knowing that any little thing that may come up, will be fixed during that time. You will not have to worry about calling in different tradespeople. The builder will organise any rectification works covered under their maintenance contract.
