Total Homes’ Ultimate Guide to Fully Complete Homes in Perth
So you’ve decided to build your very own home. Congratulations – this is going to be an extremely exciting time in your life, with no doubt a few bumps along the way. But it doesn’t have to be as stressful when you choose to build a fully complete home.
To help you navigate, we’ve put together this ultimate guide to fully complete homes. We’ve used some of the actual questions we’ve been asked by the people of Perth and made sure to include everything you need to know about fully complete homes to make a good decision.
What is a fully complete home?
So, what is a fully complete home? Simply put, it’s exactly what it sounds like – a home that’s fully complete when you move in. The theory behind the fully complete home is to make the home buying process easier by having everything ready for you come move in day.
You might also hear terms like ready for living, move in ready or turnkey thrown around. These are just other names for fully complete and you’ll find them interchanged regularly by home builders.
So if you’re after an entire solution at a value price, look no further than a fully complete home. With fully complete, you can literally turn the key and start living straight away, so you don’t have to miss out on a second more in your dream home.
What are the main benefits of fully complete homes?
1. Stress less with a hassle free move in
The first and most obvious benefit of a fully complete home is that it’s hassle free. Moving into a new home is a huge experience and most would say it’s one of the major milestones you’ll reach in your life. So don’t get overwhelmed thinking of all the finishing touches on top of everything else by choosing a turnkey design.
Move in ready lessens the load by handing over the majority of the responsibilities to your home builder. That means there’s a lot less for you to think about and you can focus your energy on what’s really important like getting your kids ready for the big move or picking up furniture for your new home.
Working with one dedicated home builder also streamlines processes and means you can avoid the miscommunication and frustration that can sometimes come when working with multiple businesses and contractors. It’ll also give you a good idea of your home’s finishing date so you can plan ahead.
2. Save money with no extra or hidden costs
Some home builders might offer hard-to-believe prices to get you in the door, but then turn around with all these add-ons you weren’t expecting. With fully complete homes, you won’t be blindsided by any hidden costs that’ll push your budget beyond what you originally expected to pay.
Unlike in custom designs where there are unallocated costs and ambiguous inclusions, you’ll know right from the start what you’re going to get for the price you pay with fully complete. That way, you can create your dream home without the nightmare expenses.
3. Enjoy a modern design & easy styling
With interior trends constantly changing, a fully complete home can ensure the design chosen for your new house never goes out of style. Designed by professional stylists using neutral colours that you’ll never grow tired of, fully complete homes always boast a modern look and feel.
Think of this neutral backdrop as an investment: Not only does it make it easy to inject your personal style, but if you then decide you need some vibrant colours in your life, you can always add on with a few simple touches that liven up the room.
4. Move in sooner & enjoy your new home
And finally, the last and probably most exciting benefit of a fully complete home – get in faster! You’ve worked so hard and come such a long way on this homeownership journey. So we understand that you’ll want to show off your new home as soon as possible – and with fully complete you can!
Turnkey takes care of the smallest details so you can show off your stunning new home sooner. Simply pick up your keys and move in the very same day.
Who should be buying a fully complete home?
Building a new home is hard enough. So spare yourself the unnecessary headache by choosing a fully complete one. It’s more straightforward and can usually close faster with fewer bumps, making it ideal if you’re:
- A first home builder
- Married with a young family or looking to start a family
- Looking for a complete solution for a value price
- Looking to build but are concerned about the cost of finishing items
How long does it take to build a fully complete home?
Traditionally, building a home would provide the basics and then you’d need to do the finishing touches like the floor coverings, light fittings and window furnishings all the way down to the letterbox, clothesline and TV aerial. But building a fully complete home means this is all done for you.
When choosing a fully complete home, clients can expect to save time and hassle once they receive their keys. This means you can essentially move in, lay out your furniture and you’re all set. 28 weeks from slab down you can be in your fully complete home from just $185,992 and start living the life you always dreamed of.
