Decisions, decisions!

November 15, 2019

Building a brand new home is an incredibly exciting and satisfying journey with plenty of decisions to make along the way. With so many options, though, how do you make sure you are making the right choice? Here are some pro tips and remember, talk to the builders at HomeWorld for professional and personal advice. 

Pro tip #1 Before you start down the new-home-build path, sit down and create three columns on a page. Head one column ‘Must Haves’, one ‘Nice to Haves’ and the third ‘Absolutely Not’. This will help you identify and focus on what you really want to make decision making easier. 

Pro tip #2 Think about what you need now and what you’ll need in five to 10 years’ time. What is your goal for this home? Do your decisions today take into account possible future changes? A bigger family? Parents or extended family to move in? Are you looking to downsize or are you wanting to consider a single level design to make moving around easier in the future? Will the design fit nicely on your block but still leave room for future improvements or the inclusion of a pool? 

Pro tip #3 Timeless or trendy? When it comes to your interior colours, be clear early on about whether you’d prefer a subtle and more timeless palette to create a neutral canvas, or if bold use of colour and on-trend fittings are more your style. Do you want to include classic features or are you looking for a builder that can include things like a bold feature wall or floating staircase?

Pro tip #4 Choosing a builder is a big decision, which is why HomeWorld has made it easier for you to meet with a number of competing builders at the same location. There is no better way to compare design options, inclusions, pricing and, of course, to ask any questions you have around the building process. Having so many designs to walk through and builders on site to chat with means you can be sure that you have explored all your options and that you are making the right decision when you choose your new home.
