You’ve worked hard, put away some money and now you’re ready to start looking at those high-end display homes you’ve been admiring for years. Perhaps you need more space for a growing family but want a house that has some upgrades that make home life more comfortable and more beautiful.
Or you’re ready to retire and you know you deserve to enjoy the many amenities offered by luxury homes. No matter what your reason is, a luxurious home can give you the refuge you want with plenty of creature comforts. But is buying an established home the best option? For many people who want the finer things in life, working with qualified home builders to create exactly the home they want is a better option.
Get your home at ‘wholesale’ price:
When buying an established luxury home you will essentially be paying the retail price for the home which includes a ‘mark up’ value the profit of which goes directly into the previous owners pocket. When you build a brand new home you are paying the ‘wholesale’ price so you can get a bigger home with more quality inclusions for the same budget. You will also only be paying stamp duty on the price of the land rather than the whole value of the house including land.
The Latest Techniques And Materials:
Buying an established house that’s been around for a while can result in some unpleasant disappointments. No matter how many places you look at, the likelihood of finding one that has all of the amenities you want, including the latest materials, finishes and appliances, is slim to none.
In most cases, you’ll end up having to pay quite a bit to replace features that don’t meet your expectations. If you hire a builder, however, you’ll have the opportunity to choose the latest technologies and materials before they are put in place. If you want the finest, most advanced features, new construction gives you that opportunity. Building from the ground up also means your home will be more energy efficient and eco-friendly.
Warranties For Luxury Homes:
Buying a house that’s already been through an owner or two means you’ll probably have to buy it “as is.” Without a warranty, you could move in to your new abode only to discover that the hot water system has to be retro-fitted for energy efficiency and that the kitchen appliances are temperamental. Most builders who specialise in luxury homes will offer a generous warranty so you’ll be covered if anything goes wrong in the first year of home ownership.
Customising For Your Lifestyle:
Do you spend a lot of time outside? You can ask your builder to include a spacious alfresco area for entertaining family and friends on balmy summer nights. Is a home office a must? You’ll be able to choose a home with a spacious home office and even decide where you want it located in your new place. Check out display homes for ideas.
There’s no substitute for superior design, and today’s luxury homes have plenty of extras to choose from. Rather than purchasing a home and then spending months trying to remodel it to fit your lifestyle, check out some premium display homes, then talk to the builder. They will be able to work with you to create your luxury dream house, making every effort to include every element that will make your house uniquely your own.
