Meet Second Time Builders Tara and Elliot

There really is no better compliment, than repeat business. We spoke to clients Tara and Elliot who have built with both Adenbrook Homes Northern Rivers Tweed and Mid North Coast to find out a bit more about the Adenbrook Homes difference.

Building your dream home can be a highly emotional and somewhat daunting process, so what is it about Adenbrook Homes that Tara and Elliot found so refreshing, that they decided to do it twice?

“We couldn’t have asked for better service! From the moment we walked in to enquire, changing our design, the colour selections, all the way to handover we were kept up to date and made to feel like we were in good hands so we really got to enjoy the journey.”

Tara and Elliot chose to build one of the most popular home designs ‘The Isla’. Their home was recognised as a finalist in the HIA Gold Coast / Northern Rivers Project Home 2020 awards. With the backing of a big brand, our local business owner Glen and Sarah have a highly regarded reputation for high quality finishes;

“We have been really impressed by the quality. Glen and the Team take great pride in what they hand over it is evident at every meeting, walk through and even after the build they are always there to ensure everything is of a high quality finish.”

Many buyers look to purchase established properties to save what is often seen as ‘hassle’. We asked Tara and Elliot about their favourite part of their build journey;

“The colour selection was amazing we had a mood board prepared so we knew what we were after and the interior Team made the process so easy we went into the build confident with our choices, however I don’t know if you can beat seeing your dream home come together!”

“Trusting your builder is vital for your end result, your enjoyment of the journey and to make your dream home everything you worked hard for!”

Congratulations to Tara and Elliot on building a beautiful dream home. If you are thinking of building, make Adenbrook Homes your builder of choice.

How to Choose the Right Home Builder

Choosing to build a new home is a big decision. But one of the most important aspects of the whole process is ensuring you choose the right builder. There are a range of factors that go into this decision, and narrowing it down can sometimes be a challenge. 

In this article, Adenbrook Homes has outlined some very important considerations to take into account when selecting the builder of your new home

Pick someone with a standout reputation.

Adenbrook Homes is a national brand with local builders situated across Australia. Our experienced team offers clients a diverse collection of single and double storey new home designs. Having won numerous awards over the last 20 years, Adenbrook Homes has experience building quality homes in a range of suburbs and is highly reputable across the country. 

Ensure your budget will align with their budget.

There are specialist builders for all kinds of homes. From mid-range projects to luxury designs, the options are endless. However, before selecting a particular style, you should consider the budget of your project. 

There is no point in approaching a high-end home builder if you intend to build a smaller sized home, as the margins will be smaller for them than a more delux project. Picking a builder who’s pricing aligns with your expectations is the best way to ensure your project remains on budget and can be completed without an outrageous and unexpected price tag.

Are they experts in your desired home style?

Home builders specialise in certain styles for a reason. If you are building a single-storey home, you will want to select a home builder that specialises in this. While picking a highly-regarded, luxury home builder might look attractive, they might not have the experience you are looking for, and could end up providing plans for a much more elaborate home than you were expecting. Browse their portfolio – if they’ve built a home similar to what you are looking for, chances are they can do the same for you.

Consider a well-known builder in a particular location.

Most builders specialise in building homes in a particular location, where their pricing is more competitive. You will likely want to choose a builder that has a vast sample of built homes in the area. The best-bet for getting exactly what you want, where you want, is to find a company that is also happily and well-represented in the suburb you are building in.

This will ensure they have experience with zoning and building in a particular neighbourhood. It also means they will be better connected when it comes to hiring trades close by to carry out particular jobs for your new home. 

Testimonials and reviews are key.

Chat with the builder’s previous clients, or go on their website and check out testimonials and past builds. You can also utilise Google to research additional reviews online. All of this will give you a better indication of the work they have done before and how happy (or unhappy) their clients have been.

Meet First Home Buyers Kirsty and Kyle

There has never been a better time to build a new home! We spoke to first home buyers Kirsty and Kyle who recently completed their new home build in Marsden Park, Sydney. They told us a little bit about their journey with Adenbrook Homes Greater Sydney.

“We decided to build our first home rather than buy an already established home as we wanted the freedom to design a home that WE wanted, rather than what someone else wanted.

Being new to property we weren’t quite too sure where to start. We decided to head to the Marsden Park display village to scope out what our options were and what builders we liked and didn’t like.”

So, let’s find out a little bit more about what their Adenbrook Homes experience was like:

“As soon as we entered the display home for Adenbrook Homes we were a little sceptical at first, as we thought based on how beautiful the houses were, that they were way out of our price range. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that there were amazing options for us.

We absolutely adored everyone we came into contact with in Adenbrook Homes. Renee, Elle, and Melissa in the office were always so lovely and helpful throughout the entire experience. We especially loved the colours appointment with Elle, as she really helped us bring the vision we had to life.

Our site supervisor Ben was awesome, we knew our home was in amazing hands when we learned how friendly and knowledgeable he was.”

To finish off, Kirsty and Kyle have some excellent advice for people starting their journey.

“Our advice to people looking to build would be to look at reviews for all builders and to head to a display village to sit down and talk to them about what they are all about.

We would recommend Adenbrook Homes over and over again. We’ve lost count with how many times we’ve recommended them already! If you’re looking for quality, affordability and a team that is dedicated to bringing your dreams to life, Adenbrook Homes is your builder.”

If you are thinking about building, now could not be a better time.  Contact us to discuss your dream home build and work with the big brand and local builder.
