REASONS TO BUILD IN 2017

Don’t put it off any longer! 2017 is THE YEAR you should build your new house.

LOW INTEREST RATES
Interest rates are still the lowest in recent history. It is the perfect time to build your your new home and lock in a fixed rate for the first few years of the mortgage. Low interests rates means you will pay less interest and really concentrate on getting as much paid off as you can while the rates are low.

What is a 2 Pac kitchen? How does is it different from a laminex kitchen? Have you ever wondered what the answers are?

Designing your new kitchen is exciting. Often you will know what you want, the colours you want to use and even the colour of the stone. What you may not have considered is whether you want to use laminex or 2 pac for your doors. So what is the difference?

Can I Talk To A Builder Without Pre-Approved Finance?

A lot of first time home builders ask us this question. And answer is – absolutely you can! Here at de Jong Homes we are happy to talk you with at any stage of your build process. You might have a lot of questions about the building process. Or you might want to look at some plans. Whether your just thinking about building or ready to go, we are happy to help. Our trained consultant team is available in our showroom 5 days a week.

Of course, talking to us before going to the bank may lead to a result you were hoping to avoid, but there certainly is no harm in having a chat about what you would like to build. We can show you houses to suit all different kinds of budgets so you can easily see what you can and can’t afford.

Or alternatively, you can visit your bank first to see how much you can comfortably borrow and then visit to chat with us. We can then design a plan to fit within your budget.

There is no wrong or right way to go about it. If you feel like have a chat to us prior to visiting the bank, then please visit us at 120b Fitzmaurice Street!
