If you’re thinking of building your dream home with Fairhaven Homes, it may be worth your time to visit one of their display homes. In this article, we’ll take a look at Fairhaven Display Home Designs and where to find them in the Melbourne and Geelong areas.

Display homes are best seen as an advertisement for a builder. It’s a great way to gain information and insight into their designs, but the builder is putting their best forward. The display home will likely have the best fixtures and features, which aren’t standard inclusions. Features like landscaping or swimming pools won’t be part of your quoted price, so use this for inspiration rather than an indicator.

Some Quick Tips for looking at Display Homes

If this is your first home or it’s been a while, you may be wondering, ‘What exactly am I supposed to look for in a display home?’ This is a great question, so before we dive into Fairhaven Homes, here are just a few tips for you to follow:

Know Your Budget:

This is one of the most important things that you can work out. Knowing your budget early on and sticking to it is the best way to avoid heartache and debt down the line. It’ll also help you know what type of house you’re after and therefore, which display homes to visit. Knowing your budget is the first step to getting amazing value for money.

Research your Home Builder

Knowing your builder and a bit about the design you’re visiting will help when inspecting a display home. For example, say you’re looking to build a double-storey house that will fit on a narrow lot that has a Hamptons facade. Your best bet is to start researching home builders who not only offer these features but also have a good reputation. On the other side, if you find out someone doesn’t offer what you’re after, you can save a trip to their display home and look at other builders.

Knowing what the builder claims to be will also allow you to see if they just talk the talk or if they also walk the walk. If a builder claims they’re an affordable quality builder, seeing their display home will allow you to judge this boast for yourself. If they’re boasting top quality inclusions, you can ask the home consultant whether what’s on display are standard inclusions or upgrades.

Ask lots of questions

Building a home is a big decision, so you should find out all you can about the display home and obtain any further information you need about the home design. Odds are the home you’re visiting will have the best features and inclusions so you should ask what in the house is an upgrade and what is standard. Anything you’re curious or unsure about? Ask! The sales consultant or new home consultants are there to offer advice guidance and insights into the house. It’s a chance to interact with someone from the builder to see whether they’re providing excellent customer service or are stand-offish.

Get a feel for the house.

A display home gives you the opportunity to see the floorplans you’ve looking at brought to life. It allows you stand in the house, touch it, walk through the hallways. It also helps give a sense of size that numbers on a page simply can’t quite capture. Remember to start taking note the second you park the car. What does the exterior look like? Does it have great street appeal? Is this a stylish and practical floorplan, or are you just not gelling with this place? If you don’t like it now, what are the odds you’ll adapt? Probably not high.

Have Fun

Building a home is a big deal and can be overwhelming, but it’s also an exciting time. Walking into a display home doesn’t commit you to anything, and it’s a chance to imagine your future. Odds are, you’ll visit display homes you don’t like, but that’s part of the process and can be part of the fun.
