Benefits of building a new home

  • When you build a new home, you have complete control over the design and features. There are no compromises on the layout or finishes, allowing you to create the perfect home for your family and lifestyle.

  • You have the option to choose from a variety of beautiful home sites in well-planned communities with amenities such as lakes, parks, and schools nearby. Alternatively, you can build on your own land.

  • By building a new home, you can avoid potential issues that may arise when renovating an older home, such as hidden faults or unexpected problems.

  • If you're a first-time homebuyer, you may be eligible for grants from federal and state governments, as well as additional stamp duty savings. Find out more about the First Home Owner Grant.

  • Building a new home also can save you money because you only pay stamp duty based on the land cost, not the building cost like with an established home. Lastly, a new home provides you with peace of mind as it comes with structural guarantees.
