If you are ready to invest in the property market, either as a home owner or an investor, then you need to decide whether you should buy an existing home or opt for hiring a Brisbane builder to build you a brand new home from scratch.
So let’s take a look at the advantages of going with a builder in Brisbane and designing and building a new home, rather than buying an existing home.
- You can chose your builder: When you decide to build a new home, you can chose your Brisbane builder based on their expertise and their reputation. Any builder worth their salt is proud of their work and will go out of their way to give you the home you deserve.
- You can have the home of your dreams: Whenever you buy an existing home you usually have to make compromises, because it is very rare that it will live up to your expectations and tick all of your boxes. When you design and build your own home however, you are on the fast track to your dream home.
- You can build in your ideal location: If you have already bought your block, then you will have considered all of the relevant factors and decided on the piece of land that is just perfect for your needs. When you buy an existing home however, you have to make do with the size of the land and its location, which might not always be optimal for your needs.
- You have lots of options: Think of all the different floor plans you can choose from and all the different flooring, finishes and colours. You can have that entertainment room you have always wanted, a luxurious ensuite with a hot tub and walk-in shower, that hobby room you have always promised yourself, and the gourmet kitchen or the parents retreat which you deserve. Everything is on the table when you build a brand new home.
- Low maintenance and energy efficient: More and more home owners want a home that is both low maintenance and energy efficient. Whilst both of these can be a very real struggle to achieve in an existing home, when you design your own home, you can ensure that both of these features are designed right into your home.
Of course, with a new build you have to wait while the building takes place, compared to moving in within a matter of weeks when you buy an existing home. In the end however, whether you build new or buy an existing home, your decision depends on your budget and your lifestyle requirements.
