First Home Choices That Will Benefit You In The Long Run

First home buyers – the Aston Homes team have your back! If you’re on the hunt for a happy home in a great location and at that all-important perfect price you may be feeling a little disheartened with what’s currently available in the Melbourne property market. What do the Aston Homes team recommend as an affordable alternative? A brand new build, of course! How will this choice benefit you in the long run? Let’s find out.


Building a home in Melbourne’s outer north or western suburbs is a serious alternative to being locked out of the real estate market. If you’re feeling the brunt of the housing affordability crisis, we encourage you to consider building a starter home on a block of your own or look at the select number of house and land packages we have available. Aston Homes’ new home consultants can help you select a floorplan that is ideal for your needs whilst achieving the all-important goal of affordability. They will be able to give you a concrete price so you know how much you will spend right from the start.


Choosing a first home is about more than the number of Instagram-worthy cafes in your postcode. It’s about choosing a home where your have lifestyle options inline with your stage of life.  When you are considering starting a family, having local places that allow your kids to thrive are important and lay the foundation for happy childhood memories. While some may view a shift away from the city as a sacrifice, there are so many great benefits to life in the ‘burbs. As well as the smooth roads, green lawns and great amenities – first home owners who build in Melbourne’s outer suburbs will love the true community spirit and opportunities for the whole family to enjoy. From school holiday activities and sporting clubs to community barbeques, holiday celebrations and social groups for all ages – there’s something for everyone.


There are a number of perks that come with building a brand new home. Come moving day, everything is pristine and in perfect working order – not to mention the latest in design technology and innovation. Moving into a home that’s low maintenance, with greater energy efficiency and brand new appliances – you can focus on the things in your life that are most important. You’d certainly be hard-pressed to find all of these features in an aging home. Even if you do approach this purchase as a starter home, don’t be surprised if mindset changes when you realise the perks of suburban life far outweigh the dissadvantages!
