Building a home is such an exciting time – whether it’s your first home or your forever home, but it can also be very overwhelming. Choosing a block of land, sorting finance, finding a builder you can trust, understanding what is included in your contract – the list goes on.

We decided to try and alleviate the questions and concerns most first timers have by following our First Home Builders Giverny & Samuel’s journey as they enter the property market and start building their very first home!

Since the beginning Giverny & Sam have been extremely passionate and excited about building their first home, Giverny has even created an Instagram account to document the whole build process and what’s inspiring them. You can follow their journey here: Honeyeater.Place

Throughout the build we’ll be asking them questions about the process, posting photos of their journey and if we’re lucky they may even let us celebrate the handover at their house (watch this space).

After their initial meeting with Roger at our Parklakes II display home, the couple felt extremely comfortable with him (he even helped them purchase their block of land) and decided to take the property leap! Roger then guided them through our 8-Step Building Process, explaining at each stage what happens and what they need to do to move forward. Lifestyle and budget plays such a big role in building a home so our New Home Consultants may ask questions outside of the standard “do you want 3 or 4 bedrooms” but this is to ensure they’re able to offer the best design for you, your family and your future.

This week we asked Giverny & Sam why they decided to build with Ausmar?

We initially heard the radio ad for Ausmar first home owners and decided to call up and have a chat and ask some questions. We got some great info and decided to get in touch with the bank to see what we might be able to borrow. Once we came up with a rough estimate we sat down with Roger who worked in one of your display homes and started on the planning. He was so easy to talk to and up front about everything, going over inclusions and pricing we soon realised maybe we can afford a beautiful house on our budget. We had previously spoken with other builders and none compared to how easy it was with Ausmar, we felt like everything felt right and could not believe the standard inclusions in the base houses. We couldn’t find that anywhere else! We had also heard some feedback from previous clients of Ausmar and it was all so positive. As soon as we saw the New Home Proposal and plans drawn up we knew then and there Ausmar were going to make us an amazing home!
