New Home Designs - Things to Think About
When researching new home designs, consider these important aspects.
A key attraction to why people build is that fact they are able to choose everything to ensure their home is just what they dreamt of. The builder, floor plan & layout, color schemes, appliances etc.
For such an important decision its crucial you do your research and decide carefully on where you will build and which builder you will entrust this most important job.
What is a New Home Design?
A New Home Design is generally a way builders exhibit examples of what they have previously built or can build. They are drawn plans and sometimes supported with a display home. Allowing you to browse examples of what a builder can offer you, starts the conversion around what you specifically need and how they can help.
Every builder is different, some will make very few modifications to their Home Designs whilst others will simply use it as a starting point and work with you to recreate the design to exactly what you need.
Home Design Size
Consider what you really want in your new home, both in terms of mandatory elements like the number of bedrooms but also more personal things like whether you want open plan living and the number of shared living spaces you require. Remember most of us want the house we can't afford, but if you think carefully about what elements would make for a really great home its likely you will be able to find a design or modify a design that ticks the boxes.
Consider Land when Researching Home Designs
When comparing Home Designs its worth being mindful of the type of land you plan to build on. If you have a piece of land in mind, ensure the Home works well on the block in terms of outdoor areas and sun orientation etc. If the land is sloping ensure builders will build on sloping land and that the design will work well. Consider your total budget for both the built component and the land cost and any extra's.
Search by Location where you plan to Build
When you search for Home Designs around Brisbane and Queensland regions, ensure you either use the map and select a region or type a suburb into the location field. This way we will only display home designs available to be built in those locations. There is no point you searching for designs from builders that don't operate in that area.
Your New Home Design Budget
It can be a good idea to discuss your finances and budget early in the search process to avoid wasting your time looking at things that are not suitable. You can use your bank, mortgage broker or enquire here.
When you have a handle on your budget you can then start to look at suitable land and its price and add this to the home build cost to ensure you are still inside budget.
Which Home Builder to Choose?
Every New Home Builder you talk to will have a different way they price their homes in terms of what's included in the base price of the design and what's excluded. It's important you have a good understanding of this so you can compare like for like when comparing value between different builders. Their is no point comparing a 25 square home without floor covering to a home 3 squares bigger that does include flooring etc.
