Until a few years ago, buying a house was considered an ordeal at the best of times, what with all the services required, and some first time buyers have rented for a lot longer than they needed to, because of this very reason. The average person would have to negotiate with an architect, in order to create the design, and then source a reliable builder, who will turn the idea into a bricks and mortar reality. Before any of this can take place, you first have to source the funding, and this on its own can be a daunting challenge, especially for the first time buyer. Let us not forget the legal documents, planning approval and also property taxes, and you begin to see just how much is involved in buying a house.
Fortunately, there are one stop builders who will handle every step of the process, and with a transparent system, the buyer is always informed. Today’s builder would have an easy to navigate website, with detailed information about the ongoing projects and the style of housing they offer. There would be display homes, which give potential buyers a real feel of the home, and with friendly staff who are always willing to help, the whole process becomes a pleasure. If you happen to live in Western Australia, there are excellent Perth display homes located on desirable housing projects, such as, Aveling Homes, one of the prominent builders in the Perth area.
No Hidden Extras
The unseen bills are a common occurrence with house purchasing, as each service company sends you their bill, but with an online builder, you only pay the quoted price, which is all inclusive. If you are looking to buy a house, and have worked out your budget, the next step would be to talk to the builder. They would be able to obtain a loan pre-approval, which is essential before you start the ball rolling. Once your loan is approved in principle, you can start to look at houses within your budget, and the builder will arrange all of the land transfer documentation, and is there to offer assistance with property taxes, should the client be unfamiliar with the process.
Viewing the Property
If the home has already been constructed, you can view the property, and by visiting the display home, you can get a good idea of the potential. If it has yet to be built, the display home will be a way of experiencing the design and layout, and if you really want a bargain, you might consider actually buying the display home, as it comes with all the expensive additions.
Sealing the Deal
Once you have selected your new home, the financial details are completed, and you can sign the contract with the builder. You will be given a date to take possession of the property, and with all the legalities taken care of and taxes paid, you will be the proud owner of a brand new home.
Buying a new home couldn’t be easier with the modern builder, who has amalgamated the essential services into one organisation, which takes the stress out of the house buying experience.
