5 tips for first home buyers at Allara, Eglinton

You’ve made the decision to buy your first home - Congratulations! The journey to home ownership is exciting and full of moments you’ll remember for life. It can also be a journey that seems complicated and daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. By choosing to partner with a trusted land developer and builder who understand your needs, building your first home can be an enjoyable experience.

Below we share our top 5 tips for first home buyers who have made the great decision to call Allara home!

You’ve never owned a home before, so it’s a given you’ll have lots of questions. It’s important to ask them to fully understand the process and to make sure you have all the information you need to make the best decisions for your family. By choosing to build at Allara, you have a team of experts ready to help you make the best choices; from choosing your block of land, to recommending the best schools for your little ones, to helping you partner with a builder who is going to meet your expectations, we’re here to help. 

Getting your finance in place can sometimes be one of the hardest parts of the buying journey. Make sure you’re purchasing a home within your budget and think about your must-haves in comparison to your nice-to-haves. Allara’s Estate Manager can help you partner with trusted financial professionals who can guide your finance process, stress-free. 

Visit Display Homes and see what you like and don’t like. Spend time in each room and think about the floor plan and how it may, or may not, work for your lifestyle. Do you need three bedrooms, or four? Is a garden important or do you prefer a low maintenance alfresco option? Do you enjoy eating in your kitchen or do you prefer a separate dining space? These are all questions you should think about as a family before confirming your floor plan with your chosen builder. 

It's easy to become caught up in the stresses that can accompany buying your first home, but try and enjoy the journey. This is such an exciting time where your home dreams can be realised. Keep yourself accountable with savings goals and slowly buy the items you need for your new home, rather than leaving everything to your move-in weekend to buy. 

Buying your first home can mean the purse strings are a little tight for a while, so be resourceful in the months before you move into your new home. Keep an eye on your local Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree for second-hand furniture and appliances, attend garage sales and look out for the items you need. You can always upgrade your furniture once you have settled into your new home, so look after the cents in the run-up to the big day!

By building in Allara in the growing suburb of Eglinton, you’re making the smart decision to live in a community that aims to have minimal impact on the environment. With house and land options to suit all budgets and lifestyle, now is the time to buy at Allara Estate, Eglinton.
