Guide to the process of building your new home – Finding the right home design
Jun 14, 2017
When starting out on the building process for your dream home it is important to find the right home design to suit your accommodation needs first. Once you have found the right plan, you need to find a block of land to suit.
Below are some simple tips to help you on your way. And remember, by involving your home builder from the outset you can take advantage of their experience and make the entire process a seamless as possible. At Coral Homes, we have trained new home consultants at each of our display centres who can guide you through the process.
What do I need in my dream home?
If you don’t already own a block of land, the best place to start in this whole journey is to find the home design that best fits your accommodation needs and lifestyle you desire. How many bedrooms do you need? Do you need separation from the kids’ area? Do you love to entertain? Make a list of all the things that you value in your home design. This will help you define your priorities when picking a design. Once you have identified a plan that ticks all the boxes for your accommodation you can look for a block of land to suit.
If you already have land, consider the orientation of your block; will the outdoor living spaces capture the sunshine? Where will the sun be in the morning and in the afternoon? Does the size of the land fit the size of the home you desire?
Love the design but it’s not quite right?
If your chosen home design doesn't quite fit your block of land or accommodation needs, your new home consultant can work with you to make the necessary amendments to the plan to ensure it suits.
At Coral Homes, you can customise our standard designs if necessary. You can control these small tweaks and amendments by getting your new home consultant to give you a free estimate of the changes you make. This is one simple way of making sure that the design you pick best fits your desired block of land and lifestyle.
When building your home, it is easy to get carried away. You can get swept away in a sea of Pinterest boards and home magazine pictures.
But it is important to remember your budget. At Coral Homes, we can provide you with a fixed price with zero to pay up front. That way you know exactly how much you are up for and what you are committing to so there are no surprises. This doesn’t mean that you don’t get to choose your fittings based on your Pinterest boards, you just have peace of mind around how much it will all cost.
House and land packages
If you don’t already own a block of land, then a home and land package may be a good option for you. Coral Homes offers a range of home and land package options in leading estates all across Queensland and New South Wales. Just have a look at our web site to see what is available. If you can’t find the right package, then we can create one for you; just ask one of our friendly new home consultants.
