Benefits of building a new home

An increasingly popular option in Australia is to build a new home. There are a lot of factors to consider before taking the plunge and building a new home, but understanding the advantages could help make the decision easier. 

Ability to customise

One of the major benefits of building a new home is that it allows you to create exactly what you want. From the finishings and fixtures to the layout and floor plan, you have the flexibility to make it unique to your family’s needs. With the help of a building broker, you can ensure you get the best deals on materials and labour costs. 

Energy efficient

With modern building materials and design concepts, you can make sure your home meets the latest energy efficiency standards, giving you a more cost-effective and sustainable living space. With the right insulation and ventilation systems, you can enjoy a comfortable interior temperature while reducing your power bills in the long run. 

Lower maintenance costs

The materials used in new homes are generally of a higher quality than those used in previously-owned homes, which mean lower maintenance costs over time and long-term savings on costly repairs. 

Modern features

Building a new home means modern features and appliances, so you don’t have to worry about replacing them every few years like you would with an older home. These features can include double-glazed windows, up-to-date security systems, and even solar panels to reduce your energy bills. 

Builder warranty

Building companies provide warranties of up to seven years, so if there’s ever an issue with the construction, you’ll be able to get it fixed at no extra cost.

I built my first home all on my own thanks to Sev and Marlise. I don’t even know where to start as words cannot describe how grateful I am that I found these two. To build my own home was only a dream that Sev and Marlise helped make into a reality. The unconditional support and dedication towards whatever I needed throughout the whole process made me feel so safe and looked after. Even though I built my dream home on my own it never felt that way, it didn’t matter the time or day, these guys went out and beyond for me with every detail and step of the process. They are people of their word that you can genuinely trust in this dog eat dog world. They are upfront and honest, it was never about the money but how you felt leaving their office. I had many friends and family tell me about the awful experiences they had building with other companies, so naturally I was a little frighten and on guard but Sev me Marlise squashed this with one meeting. But the biggest thing I can say about Sev and Marlise is that my experience was incredibly fulfilling and wholesome and I am so grateful for them and their expertise and professionalism. If I ever decide to build again I know exactly where to go! Thank you guys so much for all the love and support which has continued even after the build. Much love to you all!! 😊

Sev and Marlise were so incredible throughout our time with them. We’re so happy that we got to work along side an epic team. My partner and I had a vision, Sec and Marlise happily put up with our pickiness and changes (including after hour messaging), and did everything they could do bring that to life. They are so warm and welcoming too making this whole crazy big process more enjoyable. I couldn’t recommend these two enough!

When searching for a home loan you need to be able to rely on someone you can trust to be able to present you with all the options available and give you the right information to make the right decisions.

Mike King has helped my little family get into our own home by guiding us through everything that is to know for building a house. I did not know anything about building, I was shown and given 100% support for the process of owning my own home and I am still being supported during the build. I was given an amazing package deal much cheaper then I predicted with heaps of extras, in the location I wanted. Mike King has made it easy to understand the process and I would highly recommend him.
