One of the biggest journey’s that a couple can take together is building their dream home in North Lakes. There is a huge amount of work involved in planning, designing, and arranging the building process, especially if you have never built a house before.
The money it takes to build a new house may also seem like a huge amount for first home builders. Although it is, you need to think of it as an investment – an investment in your future. In an ideal world, you will pay off your home loan and eventually own your dream home outright. However, if this doesn’t happen, then you will have to sell your home at some point.
Choosing a reliable North Lakes builder and a perfect location for your home will make sure that you maximise the profit you can make upon selling.
Choose one of the best builders in North Lakes!
When choosing from the range of builders North Lakes has to offer, you need to think carefully about what you want from your home. Asking yourself the important questions before you buy a block or sign a building contract will make your life a lot easier in the long run, and will prevent you from running into problems down the track.
Some of the most important questions to ask yourself when choosing a North Lakes builder include:
What is your budget?
Obviously, some builders are a lot more expensive than others. Sure, they are probably better and more experienced, and they will probably do a better job, but some people simply can’t afford to use the best builder around.
Luckily for you, Alphaline Homes offers the best of both worlds. Our building team is extremely experienced, is highly trained in everything that they do, and will go out of their way to make sure that you are happy with their work. At the same time, we charge extremely competitive prices, which means that people on a tight budget can still have access to one of the best builders North Lakes has to offer.

When do you want to move in?
This is something that you have to be very clear about when you start talking with a home builder. Identifying exactly when you want to move in can help you narrow down your choice of builders. For example, you might really like one company and their prices, but if they can’t have your home complete when you need it to be, then they probably aren’t a good choice.
When you use Alphaline Homes you won’t have to worry about the build taking too long or about not being able to move in when you need to. We offer a simple build-time guarantee which has become a favourite among the North Lakes building community:
- We offer a Start Build Guarantee – We guarantee to start construction within 30 days of written notice of unconditional finance approval.
- We also offer a fixed price guarantee on all our home packages!
What exactly do you want?
It is important to identify the main features and design of your new home before you start talking to a builder North Lakes has to offer. Doing so will help simplify the start of the build, and will help you get your home up quicker with fewer changes.
If you don’t have a clear picture of what you want before you start building, you will probably end up having to spend a lot of money in later in the build changing things and adding new things on. Make sure that you have a clear design before you start building and take advantage of Alphaline Homes fixed price guarantee (*conditions apply).

Choose a good location to build:
Once you have asked yourself the difficult questions with regards to starting the building process, it is time to choose exactly where you want to build your dream home. If you want to maximise its value in the long run, then you need to do your research and choose very carefully.
A lot of new home builders decide to build in new estates which are a long way from the city centre. If you are looking to build on the North Lakes, don’t fall into this trap. Sure, new estates might be cheaper than blocks closer to the city, but it is definitely worth paying more.
Properties in new estates won’t increase in value very quick, especially over the short term. As long as the option to build in the area remains relatively easy, most people will choose to build – it is generally the cheaper option. This will reduce the demand for houses, and make it harder for you to get a decent price for yours if you ever decide to sell.
The best thing that you can do is try and find a block of land in a relatively built-up area with decent house prices. Sure, you might pay a little bit more for your block, but the actual building process will be exactly the same price (more or less!). If you do this, you should be able to sell your new home for a decent price if you ever need to, especially if you use a decent North Lakes builder like Alphaline Homes.
