What to Look For When Visiting Display Homes

As you’re preparing your family to to build or move into a new home, you need to take extra steps in order to make sure that you’re finding the perfect home that will meet all of your needs. A great way to see the quality of a company’s homes is to visit their display homes. Gold Coast home builders typically have at least one display home available for you to preview their work.

Display homes are like a portfolio. As you make your visit, you should look for a few things to help you determine whether or not it is the type of home you want to have.

Your Family Needs

Before you visit any display homes, it’s critical that you know the needs of your family. Although they may be apparent to you in your current home, having them written down will help you to keep them in mind as you browse around. It can be easy to get swept up in the moment as you see new and unfamiliar designs, but having them written down will help you to keep it in mind.

Consider how many rooms you need, what colours to use, how much sunlight you want, the size of the yard and more.

Amount of Natural Light

Having natural sunlight in your home is important for your body and your wallet. Not only is sunlight important for certain vitamins in your body, but having more natural light in your home can help to reduce costs associated with lighting. The more light your home lets in the less you need to have your lights on during the day. The orientation of the home will impact how much light is let in.

You could make a decision based on the location and orientation of your home or consider customisations to allow more light through windows.

Quality of the Yard

As you are visiting a display home, take some time to admire the quality of the yard and the exterior. This may be a good indicator on the level of quality the home builder will provide. Although the intention of a display home is to provide a glimpse into the quality of the design and build of the home, the yard may be considered a less important focus.

If you find a display home where the yard and exterior is well taken care of, it will speak well of the builders and their attention to detail and quality.
