Frequently Asked Questions

True Value Homes has all the answers to your frequently asked questions around building and buying a new home!

Building a New Home

There are many ways to go about building a new home. It truly depends on what you want and what your budget is. That being said, building a new home by purchasing a home design from a reputable building company is a fantastic option.

Before you decide on a design that best suits your needs, visit a display home or chat to the friendly team at True Value Homes. We’d be more than happy to take the stress out of a new home build and discuss your wants and limitations. Contact us today.

Building a new house can cost anywhere from around $150,000 upwards. Our most economical home design starts at $148,900.

How much it will cost you to build a new house will depend on several factors, including the cost of the land you purchase, the home design you select, and any inclusions.

Of course, the new home marketplace is always evolving. It’s worth keeping up with the latest news and tips so that you can build a new home with confidence.

Now that you know how to build a new home and how much it is to build your own house, you might be wondering how long it takes to build a house from scratch.

Typically, homes in Australia take anywhere from four to six months to complete. Multi-storey homes may take a little longer. If you’d like a personalised timeline estimate, get in touch with the True Value Homes team.

Buying a New Home

Who qualifies as a first-time homebuyer differs in Australia from state to state. For example, someone that’s eligible for first-time buyer benefits in Brisbane may be ineligible in Melbourne.

Generally, those that qualify meet the following criteria: you must be an individual (not a company or trust), you must be a permanent resident or Australian citizen, and you mustn’t have purchased a home to live in before.

Remember that these criteria change regularly. Keep up with the latest news to ensure you don’t miss your opportunity.

Buying a new home can be overwhelming. You might be wondering what the differences are between different home ranges. You might be asking, ‘What are standard inclusions?’ and ‘How do you choose land for your house and land packages?’

The best way to get home design ranges explained in clear, simple terms is to contact a reputable building company, such as True Value Homes. Or, visit us at our display homes. Our friendly team is here to help both new homeowners and seasoned property investors understand the ins and outs of new-build houses.

Buying a new house is a significant investment that takes planning and reflection. Some essential factors to consider before buying a house include:
  • Your budget
  • Whether or not you qualify for first-time homebuyer benefits
  • Your desired location
  • Your requirements, such as how many bedrooms
  • The route you would like to take, such as buying a new house, buying an established house, or building a house from scratch

Display Homes

Are display model homes for sale? It’s a question we get all the time. When you walk through our contemporary, functional new display homes, it’s hard not to fall in love!

The good news is, most modern display homes do eventually go on sale. Both single and double-storey display homes are popular among first-time buyers, property investors, and everyone in between.

If you’d like to learn more about the True Value Homes currently for sale, please get in touch with our friendly team. Or, visit our display villages in West Melbourne and other Victorian suburbs, including the Thornhill Estate, the Grove Estate, and the Westbrook Estate.

Display homes are never standard because they represent the very latest in home and interior design trends. We often get inspired visitors asking, ‘Where do you get your display furniture from?’ and ‘Where do you get the artwork in your display homes?’

Modern display homes showcase new construction techniques, innovative materials, on-trend colour schemes, cutting-edge furnishings, and more, giving them an extra-special edge that captures the imagination of display village visitors.

Whether or not a display home is a good investment will depend on several factors.

First and foremost, check the quality of the property. Unlike many of our competitors, True Value Homes commits to absolute quality, from the foundations of our homes to the many inclusions we offer.

It’s also worth reviewing the location of the display home. Is it desirable? Is it up-and-coming? Is it well-connected by public transport?

If the property is of a high quality and is in a great location, it could just be your ideal investment. Just remember to seek before making any decisions.
