Your guide to selecting the right builder
So, you’re ready to start your journey to a brand-new family home? First up, it’s time to select a builder that is suitable for you and your lifestyle requirements. The following blog will explain key things to consider when choosing the right builder and how Coral Homes is well-equipped to build your future home!
1. Browse the floorplans
Our first tip is to look for a builder that has innovative floorplans. It’s important that the layout is equally functional and stylish. For modern living, consider a floorplan that is open-plan, with the kitchen, central living and dining within the same free-flowing space. This makes family entertaining a breeze and keeps the hub of the home in one central area.
If you have a larger family or multi-generational living, you may consider a home design with separate kids zones and bedrooms. For example, many of our home designs like the Lisbon Series have a separate kids space for privacy, while our Santorini Series has a secluded kids activity room that is still close by to central living – perfect for younger children.
Another element to consider in your future floorplan is the luxury addons you wish to include. Small details such as a walk in wardrobe, butlers pantry and double sinks in the ensuite (like our Bentley Series!) can make everyday living feel luxe. Start the process and discover our extensive range of innovative home designs today.
2. Consider your block of land
If you currently have a block of land you’re planning to build on, you’ll need to make sure it will fit your chosen home design. Our team are experts in analysing your block by using our home siting process. We’ll optimise factors such as natural light, energy efficiency and space on your block by suggesting suitable home designs. Enquire today to discuss your complimentary home siting.
Plus, if you have an acreage block of land, you should consider a builder that is an Acreage Specialist. For example, Coral Homes are experts in acreage processes and can provide specialised assistance throughout your home building journey. Discover our dedicated Acreage Collection to find out more.

3. Budget for your build
Once you’ve shortlisted your favourite home designs, it’s time to compare building costs and value for money. At Coral, we provide pricing transparency from the very beginning and have been building affordable homes for Aussie families since 1990.
4. Best builder inclusions
When it comes to value for money, one of the most important factors to consider is the builder’s range of home inclusions. This includes items such as colours, materials, fixtures and fittings that really make a difference to the finish of the home. Often you’ll find different levels of inclusions based on your home budget.
For example, Coral Homes have two different inclusions levels to choose from. We believe that quality finishes should be included as standard, so our base Designer Inclusions help you get that display home look for less. Or, perhaps you’re planning to build a high-end home? Our luxury Elegance Inclusions allow you to elevate your home with the finest quality colours, fixtures and finishes.
For even more value, we recommend exploring current offers when deciding on your home and inclusions level!
