Building Vs Buying Established

Purchasing electrical goods new is usually a given - however when it comes to property, the decision isn’t always as straight forward. Read ahead as we share the benefits of building new property versus purchasing established property - which is sure to assist you in making the best decision for you and your family.


Building New Property

Whilst building a new home may seem like a daunting prospect, there are many benefits of building a new property. Here are just a few:

  • You get exactly what you want – from floorplan to finishes, your home is customised to the needs of your family and your lifestyle. You don’t have to settle for someone else’s tastes!
  • Your can build wherever you like – whether that be in a brand new estate, close to shops or your children’s school, or out rural.
  • You can avoid expensive unforeseen costs, such as dodgy electrical work or water leaks from the roof.
  • Money is saved buying a new home because Stamp Duty is only paid on the cost of the land and not the home itself.
  • If you are a first home buyer, you will be eligible for a $26k grants from the Government


Buying Established


If building doesn’t sound appealing – there are certain benefits associated with purchasing established property. These include:

  • With the Government's newly release Home improvement scheme, you can easily make you mark on a existing property if you choose to buy instead of build. 
  • You get to walk through the home before purchasing it so can get a feel for the property before committing.
  • Depending on the age of the property, you may be able to purchase in an already established area within close proximity to facilities and infrastructure.
  • You have a greater opportunity to negotiate price as typically home owners will be selling for a personal reason, as opposed to a builder who is strictly business.
  • You can skip the wait of building and move in upon settlement – this is usually 30-60 days
