The Top 3 Advantages of Choosing New Home Builders
To buy or to build? Many people will gravitate towards the former, but there are inherent perks of engaging with new home builders.
In this blog, we’ll discuss the three main advantages:
- More control over expenses
- Sustainability and environmentally friendly
- Customised design plans
Maybe you’re someone who’s inclined to build their own home but still want to be sure that it’s the right choice.
We’ll discuss three reasons why it can be better to build than buy a house:
The 3 Perks of Choosing New Home Builders
1. You Have More Control Over Expenses
Australians who build homes only pay stamp duty on purchased land and not on the erected property. This also applies to a newly built house where you’ll be the first resident. The odds of finding such homes, however, may not be in your favour.
A newly constructed house may also end up costing more than the price of building a home from scratch. And, highly experienced new home builders around Brisbane and north to the Sunshine Coast may offer full project management, which takes your budget into account to avoid overspending. It’s a service we pride ourselves on being able to offer here at Rinofin. Whoever you engage, remember to always ask about upfront costs when you inquire about services.
Since you have complete control over expenses, you can also decide on certain features that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Sustainability is another great reason to build your own house by looking for qualified new home builders in and around the Sunshine Coast.
2. It Can Be More Sustainable And Environmentally-Friendly
The Brisbane City Council estimates that an average home emits 10.5 tonnes of greenhouse gases every year. When you embark on a home construction project, you can be sure that every architectural element can work to reduce the output of greenhouse emissions.
It’s not just reduced greenhouse gases that make it worthwhile to hire new home builders for building a house. You can also limit your future electricity consumption by knowing that you use energy-efficient materials. A properly insulated home will also improve your living environment and reduce financial stress.
A 2016 survey showed that electricity prices were the primary reason for most Australians’ cost-of-living problem. Based on this, it’s beneficial to work with licensed new home builders to achieve a well-designed, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly house.
Check the Queensland Building and Construction Commission’s database to verify a North Brisbane builder or Sunshine Coast builders licences. You can find out more about our licence details here.
3. New Home Builders Can Customise Design Plans
Custom design plans can create a more sustainable home – especially during the summer. But another strong advantage is that people have the freedom to design a home that exactly matches their tastes and preferences, a totally unique design that can’t be found anywhere else.
Whether you intend to hire a Sunshine Coast builder, a North Brisbane builder, or a builder from somewhere in between, you can choose a custom design plan based on experienced advice that takes into account your budget, location, and future plans. This can be a far more future-proof option, as many homeowners end up renovating their house a few years down the track.
Even if you think that refurbishing an existing property would be cheaper, it’s still possible that you won’t like the end result. This can happen because of the existing home’s structural limitations.
Schedule A Call With An Experienced Builder
While buying a house, instead of building one, is a knee-jerk reaction for many, it’s important to take the time to consider your options. Rinofin Constructions can take the stress away from planning, budgeting and getting consent during a home build. We do this by being transparent from the pre-planning to the delivery stage.
