Have you decided to build a brand new home for the first time? Congratulations, you’ve just taken the first step on the path to homeownership! And while this is an exciting time in any person’s life, it can also be a bit scary. Entering the property market as a first time home builder can definitely come with its additional stresses.

So why not make the entire process as easy as possible by choosing a turnkey home? Read on to find out the main benefits of turnkey and what we mean when we say we can offer you a “fully inclusive” ready to move in home.

What is turnkey?

So, what exactly is a turnkey home? It’s exactly what it sounds like – a home that’s fully complete or nearing completion when you move in, so you can literally turn the key and start living straight away – how good is that?

And what makes a turnkey home such a great option for people who are building a home for the first time? Here’s some of the main benefits of choosing a turnkey home:

No extra or hidden costs

One of the most obvious advantages of a turnkey home is that it saves you money. Some home builders may offer hard-to-believe prices to get you in the door, but then turn around with all these extras and add-ons that you weren’t expecting. With a turnkey home, you won’t get blindsided by any hidden costs creeping up on you along the way like site costs, which can push your budget beyond what you expected.

At Total Homes, we understand that budgeting for a brand new home can be difficult. A turnkey home with Total Homes gives you complete confidence and certainty with our clearly set-out inclusions documentation. Everything on this list is included with no more to pay so you can get excited about the final product and don’t have to worry about the additional costs.

Timeless design & easy styling

While the degree of compromise can be difficult for many when all you want to do is move into your new house and make it your own, sometimes having someone else call the shots can be what’s best. With interior trends constantly changing, turnkey can ensure the design chosen for your new home never goes out of style.

Designed by professional stylists using neutral colours that you’ll never grow tired of, turnkey 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.

Saves time & hassle free move in

Building your first home can be stressful, but with a turnkey house and land package you can lessen the load by handing over the majority of the responsibilities to someone else. That’s right: Everything is taken care of by your home builder so there’s a lot less for you to think about. This simplifies your life during the build and means you don’t have to sweat the small stuff.

Working with one dedicated home builder also streamlines processes and means you can avoid the miscommunication and frustration that sometimes comes with working with multiple businesses and contractors. You’ll also have a pretty good idea of your new home’s finish date, giving you a clear timeline of when you can move in.

Immediate usability

We’re sure you’ll want to show off your new digs to your friends and family as soon as possible. And with a turnkey home this is a realistic expectation to have. Turnkey takes care of the smallest of details so you can show off your stunning new home sooner.
