Why You Should Visit A Display Home Before Selecting A Builder

Selecting a quality builder should be an exciting stage in your home building journey, not one that’s costly and time consuming. So, how can you ensure that you have all the tools and knowledge necessary to make the very best decision? By visiting and viewing the builder’s work first hand – of course! In today’s blog, we highlight how visiting a display home can assist you to make the most informed decision.

Viewing The Finished Product

What better way to get a feel for the quality of a builder than by visiting an example of what their finished product? While it’s true that most builders present their display homes in the best possible light, this doesn’t mean that the sparkling results you see at the display homes isn’t realistic. The quality of the brickwork, the tiling, the rendering and all the finishes should all be presented at a standard that their finished homes will be at and true display of a builder’s workmanship. Pay close attention to how the features are finished and it is fair to expect that your home to be handed to you at the same standard.  Open and close cupboards, view the home thoroughly inside and out and see all the utilities connected and in action!

Chatting To The Experts

Attending a builder’s display home provides the perfect opportunity for you to ask questions, make notes, and take pictures of your own. In the days leading up to your visit, it’s a good idea to prepare your list of specific questions to ask your new home consultant. Be sure to write them down as it’s easy for your mind to begin wandering when you start walking through the display! During this stage of the journey it is critical that you also ask yourself some important questions. How will your family grow and change in the future? How much storage are you likely to need? What furniture will be coming with you? Will you be entertaining often? As well as your design preferences, consider your budget and timeframe -it’s  the answers to these questions that will help to shape the direction of your build.

Getting A Feel For Your New Lifestyle

Wandering through a display home allows you the time to imagine yourself in the space and consider the potential lifestyle a new beginning may bring. Plus, your imagination is much more effective in real time than looking at photos and floor plans online and in books. You’re welcome to bring family members, friends or anybody with an opinion that you value – and kids are welcome too! At Aston Homes we have an entertainment area set up with a blackboard, colouring books and other activities to keep them busy while you wander and chat. Visiting a display home can be an exciting day out, and a glimpse into an exciting future for you and your special ones!
