This is where it all begins. Becoming a first home buyer. This is when you’re checking out display homes, websites and floor plans, and you start talking to a builder or two. You also start dreaming about what your ideal home will look like, where you’ll put your furniture, who will sleep in which room, where your guests will sit at dinner parties, and so on.
During this phase you may start to notice how Celebration Homes is a little different from the other builders. One of those differences is how closely Celebration Homes Building Consultants work with you right from the start to really understand the reasons behind why you have decided to build a new home. As a first home buyer in Perth, this process may seem a little daunting, which is why we’re here to help you every step of the way. As award-winning builders, we’re dedicated to delivering unsurpassed customer service. We’ll work alongside you to understand everything from what type of home you are looking to build, to what sort of lifestyle you are hoping to create, and any specific needs you may have for your new home and land package.
It’s all a part of the ‘More to Celebrate' philosophy which includes more value, more personalised services and more competitive time frames. A few highlights of this philosophy are below:
- Home Designs and Inclusions
Your Building Consultant will be happy to showcase any of our home designs to you and take you through our high standard of home inclusions that are included in our home prices. These include everything from kitchen appliances, to soft closing cupboards, to double bathroom vanity basins, to real china toilets. We offer total transparency with all of our specifications and we believe what you see should be what you get. You can start by visiting the home inclusions section of our website here.
- Home and Land Packages
Helping you create a home and land package that matches your needs is important to us. We don’t want you to end up with something that’s beautiful but not functional. Instead, we want you to end up with something that’s beautifully functional. That’s why we use our knowledge and experience to design homes that are simple and practical. We understand it can be very hard to visualise how a plan on paper translates into a real home. Our homes have been designed to ensure that there’s always room for everything when you move in – for instance, your TV, couch and coffee table in your family room.
- Construction Timeframes
We’re also thinking about efficiency throughout the design process to ensure the homes we sell can be delivered to you in the timeframes we promise. Celebration Homes have always been market leaders in construction timeframes – offering a 24-week home build from when a home’s slab is laid.*
Designing your ideal home and land package is a fun part of the process, but it can also be very time consuming. That’s why we will help you streamline the finance process which also needs to happen at this time. Our in-house finance team at Resolve Finance will look into all your financing options and shop around between the banks for you. The team are committed to helping you spend the right amount of time ensuring your home finances are structured to offer the best value for your needs. We also offer advice and assistance for first home buyers looking to apply for the First Home Owners Grant in Perth. After all, getting your finances right could mean the difference between affording that double vanity or double shower upgrade that’s on your wish list.
The final part of the Home Purchase phase involves the land that your dream home will need to go on. Celebration Homes is part of the ABN Group, Australia’s largest residential home building company, which provides us a competitive advantage with things like gaining exclusivity on prime lots of land in the most popular land estates. Our Building Consultants know how to choose the best value blocks that offer extra benefits to you such as the best future resale. We also help you choose the lots that offer the right solar orientation and compliance with design guidelines—that way you can have a home that’s cosy in winter, cool in summer and has a large alfresco to entertain your guests - all without compromising the overall design of your new home.
Most importantly at this time, Celebration Homes is committed to working with you to tailor a home and land package that suits your needs now and into the future. That’s just another part of the More to Celebrate philosophy. Find out more about becoming a first home owner in Perth today!
