If your list of New Year’s resolutions begins with ‘become a homeowner’, then congratulations! Buying or building a new home is a big step, it’s true, but it’s also a super exciting one. To help ensure you start off on the right foot, take a moment to consider these important points.

The news you have been waiting for…your deposit has been paid and your land is about to be registered. Once settlement goes through, you’ll begin to pay interest. To avoid paying more than you have to, it makes sense to ensure that the gap between settlement and the start of construction is as short as possible. The team at Eden Brae Homes actively helps its customers to use that time wisely to ensure the transition from vacant land to your dream home is a smooth process.

The benefits of our BuildSure Guarantee

Bill Hawie, Eden Brae’s Sales Manager, explains why Eden Brae ensures a short timeframe between settlement and construction. ‘Typically, builders increase their prices up to $30,000 or more a year – extra costs a customer may have to pay if building doesn’t start quickly once their land is registered. The good news is that it’s Eden Brae’s Buildsure Guarantee limits the number of houses we can comfortably build at any one time without compromising on quality. That makes a big difference to our customers because, unlike many other builders, we give every customer a forecasted commencement and completion date.

‘On top of that, our BuildSure Guarantee gives 12 months’ price certainty,’ continues Bill. ‘That’s very important because it means our customers have the peace of mind that comes from knowing there’ll be no unexpected price rises on any item in the contract – not just the base or package price.’

And that’s not all. ‘Customers can also take up their latest promotional offer, Eden Brae’s Big Sale 18 Months Price Lock’ says Bill. ‘You can lock in your house price, promotion and fixed price site costs for up to 18 months at no extra cost. It’s a big point of difference and particularly helpful for those families needing a delayed start.’

Be prepared, what’s next?

When it comes to home design, it makes good sense to get the floor plan right from day one. ‘Prepare for your home build by taking the time to carefully consider a long-term view of what you want your home to provide not only today but well in to the future,’ advises Bill. ‘We recommend our customers research ideas 6 to 12 months before settlement. Changes to the design down the line are often possible but can mean additional costs and an extended completion date. Our customers value the input of Eden Brae’s highly experienced consultants at this stage. Our friendly team of Consultants take the time to work with our customers to find the right floor plan that suits their needs and we highly recommend minimising the number of potential alterations after building has begun.’

‘Once land is registered, we get busy,’ says Bill. ‘We’re the experts in helping our customers get everything in order. That’s important because being prepared can save serious money. Our long-term industry experience means we know exactly what land developers and councils need for a compliant home build. Additionally, we can lodge your DA to council or your complying development to a private certifier. Our customers are happy for us to assist because if all the paperwork’s in order, it means they’ll get into their new home sooner.’
