What to do before visiting a display village, our top 5 tips!

Visiting a display village is always exciting, but what should you do before heading out? We’ve compiled our top tips on what to do and how to make the most out of your trip to a display village.

Display villages offer endless creative possibilities when it comes to building a home. With everything in the one place, a trip to a display village should leave you feeling inspired and ready to build your dream home! Here’s what you need to know before heading out and how to make the most out of your trip to the village.

Know your budget
Before heading out, it’s important to have an idea of what you can realistically afford to spend on a build. Chat to a finance expert like a mortgage broker first, so you have an idea of what you can afford. Getting this sorted sooner rather than later, will not only guide you on the types of homes within reach, but you will also learn more about the repayments and loans you may need. A mortgage broker can also discuss the current grants and schemes that may be available to you for building a new home, such as the Queensland first homeowner grant.

Consider your needs and lifestyle
Grab a pen and paper or open to your notes app and jot down what your current lifestyle and needs are, as well as in the future. For example, a busy family might be looking for more space now but may suit a single-storey home without stairs for futureproofing. While young professionals might consider an extra room for a family down the track. Considering your lifestyle as well as your current and future needs will help inform the building process and narrow your search.

Research builders beforehand
If you’re visiting a display village, do a bit of homework before heading out and check the builders online. Pay attention to the builders’ accreditations as well as any offers or testimonials that make them stand out.
At the new Springfield Rise display village, we’ve got a mix of reliable and trusted builders with 38 homes from 17 builders, varying from local, state and national builders. So, take the time to research each builder and see what they can offer.

Chat to the builders
With a budget in mind and knowing your lifestyle and needs, you’ll be able to chat to a builder and create your dream home. Be honest and up-front about your budget to find the right builder that can customise a home to suit you and your budget. Don’t be afraid to talk money early on, as it’ll help decide which areas of the home you can splurge or save on, as well as the costs involved with building a house. The right builder will help guide you through the process and bring your dream to life!
