Looking at display homes is a great idea for new home buyers, as it provides areal life look at the finished product and what you can expect from your build.
We’ve laid out some basic things to look for in a display home and elements to consider ahead of
Floor plans and finishes – the floor plan is something you need to love in your home, so find display homes that have a floor plan that you can imagine living in. Explore whether you want a one storey or a two-storey home, and take the time to understand the features inside and outside the home you want to include such as BBQ areas, patio, deck and even pool.
– when you are looking at display homes in Melbourne, avoid the temptation to look at homes or properties outside of your budget, it will just leave you disappointed when you determine the inclusions and finished property if you’re looking at million dollar homes and you have half the budget. Do your research and be super clear what your budget is before you start down the display home route.
Builders that use the style and finishes you expect – there are a wide range of builders across Melbourne, all specialising in specific styles and inclusions, do your research online and determine the best match for your vision including the inclusions that are in the price.
– do the planning and understand the essentials in your layout and property right down to the number or rooms, outdoor areas, bathrooms, size of kitchen, storage and whether you have extras such as a study and additional features. When you go to visit display home you can then look at displays that have similar inclusions to what you have on your list.
Before you start touring display homes across Melbourne, take the time to prepare a list of questions. Let the builders understand what is included and what isn’t. As well as this, you can book an appointment with the home builder at the display home or at a time that suits you to run through their offering to ensure that the requirements for your build are something in the builder’s scope.
