You've finally decided to try looking at house and land packages in Perth for your first home. If you don't have any idea what to expect, visiting a few display houses is a good place to start. It's easy to fall in love right away with the first display house you visit, but keep in mind that there are plenty more to see. You don’t want to miss out on the right opportunity simply because you rushed your decision. Here are the top tips for prospective buyers.

Take your time to look around

You should never be in a hurry whenever you make a huge decision such as building a house. Take your time and don’t feel pressured. Clear out your schedule for the day and focus on the display homes you are viewing. As you walk through each house, visualise what it would be like to live there.

Chat up the home’s builder

A great way to get more information about a prospective home is to talk directly to the builder. Usually, a company representative would be on hand to answer any of your questions. Take this opportunity to size up the house. Ask questions related to design challenges, builder experience, popular home features, available upgrades, etc. This should also give you a chance to get to know the builder and assess your compatibility with them.

Keep an eye on the price

The best thing about purchasing house & land packages from builders such as Wow! Homes in Perth is that you can get an ideal home for your allotted budget. While you can technically visit just about any display home you like, the best option is to still shop on the budget. That way, you will not end up biting off more than you can chew.

Before you even start checking out display homes, have a financial strategy and find out what you can afford. If you are buying for the first time, see what home financing options are available for you, such as the First Home Owners Grant (F.H.O.G.)

Think on a long-term basis

Buying a new house is a huge decision that needs a lot of thought and careful planning. Treat it as you would a long-term investment. Choose a property located in a good neighbourhood that is close to amenities and has a timeless design. This way, you can protect its value well into the future if ever you decide to sell.
