Are you a home buyer looking to build with Fairhaven Homes, but want a better understanding of their prices? In today’s article, we’ll be looking at just that. Fairhaven Homes is a Melbourne based home builder, which build around Melbourne South-East, North, West, Inner Melbourne and the Geelong area and promote themselves as affordable, quality builders.
Discovering the exact cost of your build is impossible to guess without your specific details, such as land size so use the below information as a general guide rather than concrete information. Prices also fluctuate depending on the property market, supplies and the eccentricities of different properties (sloping land, etc). You also need to understand what isn’t covered within your quoted price, such as certain site costs, landscaping, letterboxes, driveways and swimming pools. New houses aren’t cheap, so don’t be shy to clarify exactly what is covered in your quote.
For the most up to date information regarding prices, offers and deals, your best bet is to speak directly to a sales consultant. Another option is to get in touch with Buildi. We find the perfect builder for you and help you get a good price for your dream home.
To reserve a place in a promotion or to secure the builder’s services, expect to pay a $1,500-3,000 initial deposit.

Fairhaven Homes Range Pricing
As the name suggests, this range focuses on practicality and affordability and is pitched towards first home buyers. The building process has been streamlined, which sounds amazing, but there are a few things to consider. First, streamlining means less choice for you and if you’re a hands-on person, it might drive you up the wall not being included in everything. There’s also a limited amount of home designs, with only five different floorplans, only one of which is a double storey house.
To be fair, none of the above means the Simplicity Range is bad, it just means you have to weigh up if it works for you. This choice is specifically created as a simpler option for first home buyers.
