It is a known fact that everyone appreciates a newly built custom home. When it comes to buying a new home, many Australians would head towards the web in order to look for already established property.

Benefits of new home designs
There has been a great deal of innovation in the design of new homes and there are quite a few benefits of building from scratch rather than buying an already established home. Some of these advantages are as follows.
Building a new home allows you to customise it according to your specifications
For anyone starting anew it is quite easy to pick everything that they like and incorporate it into their new home. You can even choose minor details like picking the best fixtures and deciding upon the size of the kitchen or the master bedroom. On the other hand when it comes to pre built homes there is not a great deal that you can do about it and renovating would be an expensive exercise. When you design a new home you can build the whole space to match your current lifestyle. In fact you can make sure that your home is well suited for your future by adding a few extra rooms like a guest bedroom or a home office.
Nothing in your new home is old and drab
Paying your contractor to design a new custom home means that you don’t have to worry about the broken floor under the carpet or seepage from the walls. There are no nasty surprises waiting for you to unearth after you have moved into your new home. This not only helps keep things stress free but you don’t even have to worry about maintenance and repairs at all. You can rest assured about actually enjoying moving into your new home instead of having to worry about the next repair session.
Innovative floor plans
Floor plans have come a long way especially in the last decade. More and more people are opting for open plan living which actually combines the kitchen and dining area along with the living space. Most established homes usually have each of these spaces fragmented into different rooms so there is no open flow preferred by millennial homeowners.
Also if you are buying a home for the first time it is important for you to make sure that your new home is set up to accommodate your growing family.
When you build a new home you have the option of creating subtle house designs and adding fixtures and fittings according to what is important for you.
Creating an Energy efficient home
When you build a new home you can even do your bit for the environment by creating an energy efficient space. This means that you can have a detailed talk with your builder to build green by incorporating larger windows and using solar panels. This would not only help reduce wastage but would also lower the utility bills.
Gone are the days when homeowners had to contend with miserable dark looking rooms and moldy spaces. It is out with the old and in with the new, better insulation and open space living is all the rage.
Is building a new home actually worth it?
In most cases it’s better to build new than to invest in an older home. Also you would love to be involved in the whole design process along with the builder. Choosing the fittings and the furnishings that you want in your home and according to your taste is a feeling unmatched by any other.
Building a new house can help you save money
When it comes to the financial aspect building a new home has several advantages. You wouldn’t have to worry about the stamp duty and in fact once you are done choosing the house and land package you only pay the duty for the block of land and not for your home. That is the first savings that you would come across and it would also allow you to accept a construction loan instead of a regular home loan. The benefits of a construction loan include paying the builder specific amounts at the agreed stage of construction. The bank would only charge interest on the amount that you have built and this can save the interest while your home is being built. The government also offers incentives like the first home owners Grant which allows new buildings to be built.
