Living The Dream With Aston Homes
If you’re considering making the transition from tenant to home-owner, the time to act is now. There are so many wonderful perks to owning your own property and today, the Aston Homes team are here to talk them through! Ready to start living the home-owner dream? Let’s begin!
Enter the property market
Building or purchasing your first home is a great first step in beginning to develop a robust property portfolio! We know that the Melbourne property market is a competitive place and it’s likely to strengthen in the coming years – so, now’s the time to act. Melbourne’s outer suburbs are a great place to get your foot in the door. There are new parklands, restaurants and family-focused facilities opening all the time, along with a growing appreciation of culture, cuisine and community. We suggest you get in while you can!
Freedom to style
For many of us, a home isn’t just a place to rest your head – it’s a space for you to be yourself and create life long dreams. The ability to style and customise a home truly comes with ownership. You’re free to paint a feature wall, hang your favourite paintings, and watch your garden grow. When you’re a tenant, you’re often restricted to your landlord’s rules, and any gardening or house improvements that you make are lost as soon as you move out. Choosing to build allows you the ability to make your house your real home!
A home that grows with you
A new build with a flexible floorplan should comfortably house your family as it is today, considering any bundles of joy who may be joining your family in the future! For young families, space is everything. While it’s important for the family to spend quality time together, it’s perhaps equally important for parents to put their feet up from time to time – as kids enjoy their own space to play. Home ownership allows for renovations, room re-vamps and continuous change.
A helping hand
There are perks and programs available that could provide you with a little extra dosh towards the deposit for your first home. As a first-home buyer, you may be eligible for the First Home Owner Grant scheme. Victorians buying or building a new home (valued up to $750,000) may be eligible for a payment of $10,000 under this scheme – that could make a significant difference to your deposit! Interested to learn if you’re eligible? Helpfully, the Aston Homes team explore into this topic in greater detail in our recent blog. Read on here.
