It is common in Australia to buy off-the-plan. With substantial savings in stamp-duty as well as a few other benefits, it makes a lot of sense financially to be purchasing off-the-plan. But do you know exactly what you are buying into?

One of the big caveats to buying off-the-plan is obviously the fact that the property you are buying into has not completed yet (or in some cases has not even started the construction phase). Developers will nowadays provide excellent quality renderings and models of what the completed build will look like internally and externally. This is an excellent way to gauge how your future home is going to feel and let your imagination run wild.

However, much attention needs to be put into looking at detailed specifications as renders may not 100% accurately portray what the end result will be. Common things to consider include:

  • What are the characteristics of the property? Is it a small apartment unit, or does the property get less sunlight than the average house / unit due to its facing or location?
  • How does the property rate in terms of utilisation of scarce space?
  • Does the property maximise the amount of natural light with glass and/or mirrors?

Buying off-the-plan is a big step towards a commitment and investment. Make sure you make an informed decision and scrutinise down to the fine details of the build to ensure both ultimate comfort of your future home and also maximum potential for return on investment.

Unless you are a big fan of eating out regularly, your kitchen is probably one of your most utilised places at home. This is even more so if your place of residence is housing more than a couple of people, so why not let this workspace at home encompass your characteristics and style?

One of the bigger trends that we are seeing in 2017 is unique and personalised kitchen splashbacks symbolising expression of character. Long gone are the boring splashbacks which came stock-standard with the house, let your kitchen have a breathe of fresh air and revitalise the area to make cooking and food preparation fun again.

With the recent advancements in technology, custom splashbacks are now a lot more mainstream and commonly adopted. Depending on your personality and the overall design of your home, splashbacks can be customised to encapsulate various colour schemes, abstract prints or even photos. Expression of character should always be more important than worrying about resalability of your home in the future.
