Buyers are looking at newly built homes in Canberra

Buyers are looking at newly built homes in Canberra

A significant part of the market is looking to buy a new home in Canberra and they are looking for newly built homes or houses they can knock down and rebuild.

Co-owner of Maloney’s Property, Sue Maloney, commented, 

We have noticed a trend that property investors and first home buyers are looking for newly built homes and are being more selective about the facilities located on, and near, a property when purchasing.

In our experience, buyers are seeking:

  • quality long-term investments,
  • complexes that offer quality facilities,
  • central locations, and 
  • floor plans ideal for professional couples.

Families are looking strategically as well and are looking for houses and apartments that are close to:

  • schools
  • transport
  • health services, and 
  • lifestyle facilities such as:
    • shops
    • cafes, and 
    • restaurants.

Other advantages of buying a new or recent build can include the following features:

1. Being EV charger ready
One of the major changes in the next 20 years will be a 100 per cent shift to electric vehicles. Apartments and houses that are ‘EV ready’ will be a step ahead of the game.

2. Modern floor plan and design
Most modern homes are open, bright, and airy. In contrast, older properties are darker and have smaller rooms that may require expensive remodelling.

3. Energy efficiency
New homes have to comply with the latest environmental guidelines and take advantage of advances in building materials and construction practices. 
An energy-efficient home will give you a ‘warm inner glow’ and save you money on ever-rising energy costs.

4. Modern appliances
One of the benefits of a new build or a new build home is that the appliances will be modern and hopefully not need replacing. 

5. Less initial maintenance 
It stands to reason that maintenance on a new home should be low in the first couple of years as everything is new. Also, new homes are constructed with the latest regulations and building codes they; should require less maintenance in the longer term.
