If you’re building a new home then you will inevitably go through the process of looking at display homes. Exploring display homes can be a fun and exciting experience, as you get to see your dream home in real life, as well as seeing what will and will not work with your lifestyle. However, going to too many display homes can make the process feel tedious, and can become confusing.
At iBuildNew we help you create a shortlist of builders who can meet your building requirements, can service your area and meet your budget. We also connect you with the right people so you aren’t wasting your time.
Another benefit of this shortlisting process is that when you are connected with the right builders, your display home visits are concise and directed efforts. Ultimately, if a builder doesn’t service your area, or is well above your price point, there is no point visiting their display homes. Visiting around 5 different display homes rather than 20 or more means that you can really appreciate each properly and make a more thoughtful decision by spending some quality time in each.
In saying that, we have listed 3 of our favourite display homes in Victoria. Each of these builders offer very different products but one of these might be right for you. If you are looking to build and don’t know if these builders are right for you, make sure you contact one of our expert consultants who can advise you based on the additional intelligence we store on each builder and developer. You can call us on 1800 184 284 for a free no obligation chat.
We love this home because it is clear that it was designed with family function in mind. An open plan dining and family room flows effortlessly to the outdoor area, allowing for easy entertaining and fun family nights with the kids.
If you are looking for a more cosy way to spend time with your family and friends, then you should have a look at the theatre room in the Whiteley 25 display home. This theatre is big enough to comfortably sit the whole family, but not limiting the functionality of the remainder of the house. You can see this for yourself if you decide to visit this display home.
It is always important to include space in a family home to enjoy each other’s company and entertain others, but never forget that having your own space to relax and unwind is also vital. This Metricon design does this effortlessly, with handy zoned kids bedrooms as well as a private master suite at the front of the house, with walk-in-robe and ensuite.
This is just one of Metricon’s many display homes that you can visit. You can find out more about Metricon here, and explore more of their house designs here.
When you are visiting a display home it is important to think about how your family will move around each area. Is the kitchen big enough to entertain, are the bedrooms big enough when the kids are older and need bigger beds? Will your existing furniture fit or will you need to buy new furniture?
The great thing about the Springbrook house design by G.J Gardner is that has been designed to accommodate for every size family. This home has 4 well sized rooms, multiple living areas that can be adapted to your needs, including a retreat area in the master bedroom and an impressive open plan living space.
If however, you are walking around this display home and you feel that a few modifications to the floor plan could really make this your dream home, G.J. Gardner can help you with this. For example, you could turn the rumpus room into an extra bedroom or speak about adding a third bathroom. Creating a space that will work with your family both now and into the future is vital when you are looking for your dream home.
Cezanne 57 by Masterpiece
The last of our favourite display homes is this Masterpiece home design. If you’re interested in building a luxurious home in an established suburb, then Masterpiece may be the builder for you. They are experts on knock down rebuilds, with designs to match. Additionally if you are looking for a dual occupancy, not all builders can cater for this. Make sure you speak to one of the iBuildNew consultants about what you are looking for before you head off to visit display homes.
What we love about the Cezanne 57 display home is the attention to detail! From the well designed and extremely functional kitchen with butlers pantry, to the many living spaces, including master bedroom retreat, this home how everything you will ever need. We really think the pictures of this home speak for themselves!
Another fantastic area of this design in the outdoor alfresco area, which is positioned perfectly beside the kitchen and living room so it is easy to entertain and seamless to move outside and enjoy the fabulous Australian weather.
How Should you Prepare Before Visiting Display Homes?
If you are visiting display homes, it’s imperative you do your research before hand to avoid wasting valuable time and effort. This is different for everyone but we recommend you make a list of wants and needs, properly consider your lifestyle demands, your location and your budget, whether it is set by a bank or by yourself, and speak to an iBuildNew consultant before you head off to the display villages. Arming yourself with the right information means you can ask the right decisions and be an informed customer. Call us on 1800 184 284 or book a call .
