Advantages of New Home Design

New home design has grown far in recent years, and we believe the benefits outweigh the drawbacks, making it a better alternative than buying an existing home. Let’s have a look at the primary benefits of building a new home.

Get exactly want you want

if you build a new home, you have the opportunity to customize it to your preferences, from the layout and interior finishes to the landscaping, making it a personalized space that reflects your style and needs.

Unless you want to deal with the bother of renovating, established properties are fixed in stone. When you choose a new build house, you can create any area you require to live your perfect lifestyle. Depending on the size of your home, you can also futureproof it by adding extra rooms like as bedrooms, an office, a theater room, or whatever else you require.

Everything is brand new

You don’t have to worry about hidden problems in new build homes. They are usually built well by reliable builders, so you won’t find any unpleasant surprises behind walls or under carpets. Choosing a new home design means less stress in the future because newer fixtures, fittings, and appliances are less likely to cause problems. In older homes, you never really know what repairs the previous owners have done or neglected.

Compared to older homes, new homes need much less maintenance. If you prefer not to spend the first six months after moving in dealing with painting, polishing, scrubbing, and fixing things, then a new home might be a better choice for you.

Futuristic Floorplan

Home design has improved significantly, especially in the last decade. Open plan living, where the kitchen, dining, and living areas are combined, has become the standard because it offers many advantages. However, older homes often have these areas divided, which makes the floorplan less efficient.

If you are a first-time homebuyer, your new house may be designed differently based on whether you are planning for a growing family or downsizing. For example, a family might prefer a larger house, while someone downsizing might opt for a single-story home with less space. Additionally, the location of your home can influence design choices.  These small design details are crucial to consider when building a new home, which may not have been as important in the past.

Energy efficient designs

New home designs are usually more energy-efficient compared to established homes due to the use of modern materials, construction practices, and systems. If you are concerned about high power bills in your future home, choosing a newer home can be beneficial as they tend to be more energy-efficient. Older homes with thin glass windows, poor insulation, and drafty spaces are no longer common issues in newer homes, making them a better option for energy-conscious buyers.

Home and land bundles reduce the stress of creating a new home. All of the hard work has been done – we have secured your land and selected the ideal home for the plot.

What are the benefits of building a new home?

Building a new home comes with several extra benefits that can greatly impact your family and finances. The most significant advantage is the home’s design. Modern floorplans provide both spaciousness and privacy, optimizing space and flow. Additionally, new home designs prioritize energy efficiency, benefiting the environment and saving on your budget. Homeowners also appreciate the opportunity to customize their new home by selecting everything from countertops to driveway materials, unlike older homes where those choices are limited.

Is building a new home worth it?

Owning a home designed for your family is always worth it. You get the joy of creating a place you’ll love and potential financial savings, making it a great choice.

Building vs buying a new house

Building your own home offers advantages over buying. House and land packages can provide home loan interest rate benefits, which can be helpful when needed. Building your dream home ensures it fits your family’s needs now and in the future. Additionally, with Frankly Royal View, you receive the benefits of a builder’s warranty and a Lifetime Structural Guarantee.

Does building a new house save money?

When it comes to the financial side of things, building your dream home can have a range of benefits. The first is stamp duty. When you choose a house and land package, you only pay stamp duty on the block of land, not the home. That’s a saving straight away. And building a brand-new home allows you to access a construction loan instead of a regular home loan. With a construction loan, you only pay the builders specific amounts at agreed stages during construction. And the bank only charges interest on the amount you have paid out. That can save on interest while your home is built. Government incentives such as the First Home Owners Grant can sometimes favour new builds over existing properties, another financial benefit.
