First Homebuyers

Getting Started

First homebuyers are faced with many tough decisions – where to put your big flat screen TV, whether it’s better to build near your family or your partner’s, and whether you can afford your dream home on your tight budget. The next few months will be full of decisions! But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Here are a few things to consider:

Budget Make sure you get your finances sorted! Find out how much you can afford to spend.

Land How deep and wide is your land? Will the home you like fit on your block, and in the best orientation?

Design What do you need and want in your new home? How many bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas and car spaces do you need? Does she need extra closet space? Does he need a man cave? What will you need in 5 or 10 years from now?

Decoration How do you want your home to look and feel? What colours, appliances, fixtures and fittings appeal to you? What about window and floor coverings? Look through magazines and visit our display homes for inspiration – you can’t do enough research.

Remember, our sales consultants are our new home design experts. They’re always on hand to help!
