Buying

What kind of houses are available on the market?

Do I want to live in a brand new home?
New homes are usually sold by the building contractor or developer. So you're not dealing with an owner currently living in the house. A new house might also be one of many in a larger development. With a new home, there are a number of factors to consider.

  • Value of "newness"
  • Value of low, early-years maintenance
  • Advantages and disadvantage of living in a new community
  • Location of a new development to community and commercial services

Do I want to live in a resale home?

  • Value of a warranty offered by the vendor
  • Value of living in an established neighbourhoods
  • Value of living close to established community and commercial services
  • Value of mature trees and gardens
  • Advantages and disadvantages of age (heritage charm verses potential repair, maintenance, and renovation)
  • Future costs due to normal exposure to weather and settling
