Tips On Successfully Visiting A Display Home

Before any big purchase, it’s necessary to inspect and test out your investment. A display home visit is a great opportunity to see ideas from the pre-construction plans come to life and decide on whether the builder or the house itself reaches your expectations. Apart from providing a taste test when searching for a potential house, there is also the urge to assess the overall home design during the experience. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of display home visits!

Know What You Want
You can be a step ahead by being certain on your preferred budget, time frame and land size. This can begin through browsing brochures, going on virtual tours online and having a family discussion to narrow down your main objectives. The company’s website and social media accounts can outline their home design range and assist you in choosing. A strategic step is also beginning a conversation with the consultant or builder before visiting to answer any questions you may have prior to the visit. By doing your research, you are able to gather information before even stepping foot in the display home.

Plan It Out
If you have a list of detailed questions that need to be answered in person and a copy of your floor plan, bring it along with you. While navigating through the house, you can easily spot areas or features that may need adjusting and modifying.  During the visit, prioritise examining the functionality of the whole property by checking the doors, pantries, rooms and where to fit furniture in. Through visualising your future living space, you’ll be able to make the call of whether the particular house is best suited towards your goal. In addition, schedule in a few breaks and enough time to survey other houses to make your visit worthwhile.

Display Home Planning

Stay Focused
It is easy to get distracted with amazing design or when a display home lines up well with your dream home. However, continue to keep an eye out for the fundamental necessities that contribute to the overall liveability of the house such as, backyard space, room for storage and available connections for electronics. It is also integral to be reminded of the big picture by comparing the land to the house itself and decide if you are content with the direction of the house, especially with window orientation.

Check and Confirm
It is essential to clarify prices and what exactly is included in the quote provided. As display homes are usually fitted with attention-grabbing and eye-catching elements, take a step back and review what your specific home package includes. For instance, a base home package may not include key features that stand out to you and may require more payments for the upgrade costs. The terms and conditions are a resource for you to properly review and compare what each builder has to offer.

Display home

Lasting Impressions
If you’re able to, bring the whole family along to have a look at all the displays. When analysing all the different options, it’s helpful to get everybody’s impressions and opinions as investing in a house is a project for the entire family.  As there may be multiple visits to get through, try to capture a few photos while you explore to assist in shortlisting your favourite picks and making the final decision.
