Building is the Better Option

Why-Build-Image2 Building new can seem daunting – you need professional guidance

Why we should aspire to owning a new home:

Imagine the choice you have, a brand new home, just the way you want it, or a 26 year old home with brown and yellow carpet and matching wallpaper, with the wrong number of bedrooms and smelling musty, for a similar price to a new home?

Interestingly, the cost of a brand new home is not that dissimilar to the cost of a used home and building new can offer you extra benefits:

  • Provides you with the potential for capital gain
  • Delivers you the latest in new technology

  • Conforms to the latest building standards
  •  Provides an opportunity for you to incorporate your own design, ideas and creativity


So if the price of a brand new home is similar to a used home why don’t more people consider building and owning a brand new home?  We have considered this question and have come up with the following top three reasons:

  • Building Failure – we have all heard those bad luck builder stories
  • Process too hard – where do I start when considering building?
  • Finance too hard – my bank will give me a used home loan certificate but not one to build new
