It seems obvious that building a home to completion is the most desirable option, but there are many other advantages gained by opting for a turnkey package, which you may not have considered.
What is a Turnkey Package?
In short, a turnkey package is a property that has been fully prepared with everything you need, right from the moment you open the door. From fittings to utilities, and often even including features like landscaping and interior design, turnkey packages are the perfect option for those that want a perfectly stylish and functional home without the hassle of renovations and revisions.
So, What are the Benefits of Choosing a Turnkey Package?
Taking Care of the Necessities
More than just offering a stunning, ready-to-use home, a turnkey package from the right home builder will include many of the features required by land estates. For example, many developers and councils will require a level of landscaping to be performed.
Working with an established home builder, your landscaping needs can be handled as part of your package. This takes a lot of the stress out of the building process, whilst also ensuring that your home is fully fitted out and compliant from the start.
Imagine this scenario: Your new house is built and you decide to install a swimming pool or pergola in the backyard. Inspections are done by tradesmen which find there is no water or electrical connections in place, and these will need to be retrofitted by digging up the backyard.
They may also highlight access issues for heavy equipment such as diggers and excavation machinery. Permits will need to be applied for through the council which cause cost blowouts and delays, and finally, the bank is applied to but they seem reluctant to extend you another loan. Every one of these roadblocks is going to cause headaches, delay and extra expense.
Typically, there are no surprises or cost blow-outs with turnkey packages. These builders have built strong relationships with their trusted, reliable partnered businesses, which provides us with the ability to accurately cost and predict successful outcomes.
Turnkey packages also mean one loan application will cover the whole scope of your build. Conversely, landscaping, outdoor structures, and water features each may require separate additional loan applications to get specialist tradesmen in each of these areas.
Walk through any home Display Centre and the aspirational lifestyle you are inspecting is actually a turnkey or ‘move-in ready’ home. This means that the landscaping, water features, finishes and fixtures you are admiring have all been completed and are ready to be enjoyed.
It is often a surprise to those inspecting display homes to discover that house and land packages are just that – a house on the land. That glittering swimming pool, lush green lawn and pretty garden won’t form part of their finished product. In fact, many buyers are shocked to find themselves with the mammoth task of turning flat, lifeless soil into something which matches and complements their amazing new home.
Turnkey packages allow you to avoid the mess and disruption caused by landscapers and other workmen. Rather than risk it looking like an afterthought, your swimming pool can be planned and integrated at the design phase, to bring a seamless flow to the leisure areas.
Access issues which may cause problems once the main house structure has been completed will also be avoided by packaging these into a single design allowing the infrastructure and foundations to be laid at the same time as the home.
Packaging up your home build can also circumvent any surprises which may occur including issues with easements and lot restrictions. By entrusting an expert turnkey home builder to navigate the complex issues surrounding documentation and paperwork for council permits and applications, you can save yourself a great deal of stress, hassle and angst.
The day your new home is ready to move into should be a time of joy, excitement and relief. By opting for the convenience of a turn-key package you can move in and begin living a dream lifestyle immediately – no fuss, no muss.
