Why would I Invest in a Modern New Home?

Property and houses are expensive at the best of times. Indeed for many people buying a house is the single largest monetary investment they will ever make. Assuming a steady income, the larger the purchase, the larger the debt and the longer it will take to pay off. There are many Australians scratching their heads at the moment wondering if they will ever be able to afford a house of their own, let alone a modern new home. Despite that, buying a new house has the potential to save you money in the long run and give you peace of mind. I Here are a few pros and cons to investing in a modern new home.

Enjoy a Modern Lifestyle

The first and foremost benefit of a brand new home is a modern lifestyle. There will be no need to rewire the house or worry about the safety features to run a vast array of electrical and entertainment orientated appliances. A modern home can be built around a smart home controller, a computer that is in charge of moderating internal temperatures, co-ordinating security and can even order you groceries – all from a smartphone or a wall tablet.

Additionally, a modern home is designed for modern living, making effective use of the most refined techniques of architecture and fabrication to provide the best possible experience to occupants. Innovations in materials and developments in society’s understanding of our emotional and social needs have drastically increased the suitability of our residences to our busy and varied modern lifestyles.

Age does Bring Character

Older buildings carry with them personality from another time. There is something delightful about a building that is covered in vines and has garden paths that give you the feeling you are going to turn a corner and end up in Narnia. Due to the hard manual work involved in building a house with that kind of character is rarely found in new buildings and is close to impossible to put a price tag on. Age does require more maintenance and it’s important to consider whether your lifestyle will be able to cater for that.

Peace of Mind in New Structures

It will come as no surprise to anyone who has lived in a rental for any substantial period but old houses do break down. Tiles fall off the roof and plumbing can rupture leaving your toilet clogged for literally days at a time. What’s worse than damage you can see is what can happen underground and in your foundations, with shifting soils and incumbent termites wreaking havoc.

A new modern structure built right by professional builders will last for years. You won’t need to worry about repairs or reinstallations for a long while, but like any property you will need to keep up with maintenance.  Another advantage of building brand new is that maintenance is usually taken care of by your builder for the first few years or as per your contract.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

We would just like to say a massive thank you once again for all your help with the house. We moved in on the weekend and we are loving it ! So thank you for being part of the team that made our dream come true.

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
