Visiting a display home

Visiting a display home

Planning a visit to your local display village this weekend? Before you rush off, these are the 5 essential things you should consider before your visit.

1. Know your budget

Display Homes showcase the builders work and its no surprise that they have the highest quality finishes and materials. Not to mention to styling as well! Talk to the team at the Display Home and ask about the price of their home designs. You would want to understand what in the Display Home is actually part of their standard inclusion and what is an upgrade.

2. Compare builders
Display villages have all the big builders in one location so you might as well compare. You should start your conversation about what the builder includes in terms of site costs and standard inclusions.

Using our Inclusion Checklist, you can easily compare us to the other Home Builders and see the difference in value.

  1. Choose a good time to visit
    Weekends might be the most convenient time for planning your visit to a display home but try to visit during the week. Weekdays are quieter meaning the sales consultants will have more time to devote to you. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy the atmosphere more. If you’re getting close to making a decision about a design, make a one-on-one appointment.
  2. Determine what you need in your new home
    Before booking an appointment to visit a display home, you need to really think about what you want and need in a home, both now and in the future. Are you considering adding to your family? Will you have regular guests? Are you a minimalist, or someone who needs lots of storage? Are you into gardening or not so bothered? Think about where you could compromise.
  3. What to take with you on your visit
    Once you’ve done the groundwork on your budget, builders and needs, it’s time for the fun part: actually visiting a display home or village. Go armed with a pen, paper and camera/phone so you can record details of the designs and builders you like, and take lots of photos. Take your time, stop for lunch or a coffee and take in as much as you can.
