Building a home used to be risky,  time consuming and risky

But that was before Build In Oz arrived to give local families the tools they need to have a happy, safe and successful home building experience.

 

Build In Colac exists to give you access to the information you need to have a happy, safe and successful home building experience.

As a mother, teacher and home building advocate with a lifetime of exposure to the construction industry, I understood the fears and frustrations felt by families who were building. In 2015 I decided that I would give Australian families something no one had given them before.  Authentic, Independent advice that would arm people with the 'secret sauce' information that the bankers, builders and real estate agents would prefer they didn't know. 

Fast forward three years, two best selling books and an Australia wide online e-learning platform later, and I feel like it's just the beginning.  Every day I discover another small way that I can make a big difference to the success of someones home building experience.

What are the advantages of building your new home in Colac?

Find out all the benefits here, both for now and into your future.

Lifestyle

Imagine your lifestyle if you were occupying a home which was built specifically for you and your family’s needs, wants, wishes. Pretty great, right? Your entire life could be simplified by having the storage you need, an extra bedroom or a study, the possibilities are endless!
Life’s busy and many of us can’t spend every weekend in the garden or take on maintenance around the house. Many of us crave low maintenance living that doesn’t compromise on style and comfort. Living in a new estate close to all of life’s essentials can give us a more simplified lifestyle where we focus our time less on working around the home and more on enjoying our home and the people in it.

Control

Let’s face it, there’s always at least a few flaws with any home. We have learned to live with flaws, but when you build a home you create a home that’s perfect for you and your family. No home is perfect unless you build it. To find a home which ticks every box isn’t easy, but to build a home in accordance to a tick list certainly is! The freedom to make your home truly your own is one of the best reasons to build a house.

Security

You’ve heard the saying ‘Rent is dead money’. When you pay rent, your payments go towards paying off ‘someone else’s’ asset, making them wealthy and keeping you poor! When you have a mortgage your payments go towards paying off ‘your’ asset helping you to build wealth.
Not only are mortgages one of the biggest financial commitments, they’re usually the longest. If you’re going to pay for something for years to come, then why not pay for something that invests in your quality of life and secures your financial future in your later years, not to mention having something to leave your children?
With current interest rates so low, first-home-owner grants and developers rebates, if you can afford to pay rent then you may be able to afford a mortgage. What if getting a home loan wasn’t as out of reach as you might think or what if you did own your own home and you were sitting on loads of equity you didn’t know you could use for lifestyle or investment purposes?
Financiers and Home Lenders can work with you to establish a realistic budget for you to plan from accordingly. We can get you in touch with the right people who would welcome the opportunity to share with you some creative pathways to home ownership and property investment.
There are few items on a credit report that demonstrate financial responsibility and general stability in life better than a long history of on-time mortgage payments.

Equity

Mortgage repayments build your very own financial future and can be your ticket to financial freedom in your retirement. Home owners will build the golden gift of ’Equity’. Equity is defined by the monetary value of the difference between what you paid for your house and the value it is worth today. So lets say you buy a block of land in Colac today and build a house and it costs you $350,000.
That house upon completion may be valued at $380,000 (despite what it cost you to build), giving you instant equity of $30,000! Over the life of your mortgage, property prices increase and the value of your property grows yet the value of your mortgage stays the same meaning you build more and more equity with every year!
Having equity that can be tapped into if necessary is a big plus for homeowners. Having equity in your home is not only important to help pay emergency expenses, but simply having the equity available to you makes it much easier to get a loan for almost anything else. If you have, say, $60,000 in home equity, a bank will feel much better loaning you $25,000 to buy a car than if you were renting.

Equity to Invest

Home ownership can also allow you to invest in property down the track by using the equity built up in your home over the years. This option may possibly lead you into a better financial position in your retirement. To learn more about investing in property get in touch with one of our financiers who can guide you in the right direction.
What can equity do for me you ask? Equity is your Willy Wonka, your golden ticket, your key to financial growth. How? You can use equity to borrow against! So remember the $30,000 equity you have sitting in that new house you’ve just built? Part of it may now be up for grabs if you need it!

Affordability

There’s bit of a misconception regarding the pricing involved in designing, planning and building a house. Price is always relative and like anything, you get what you pay for. You’ll be surprised just how affordable building can be and how it can save you money in the long run. You may know of families who build a new house every 5-10 years.  As their home grows in value, so does their financial security.

We hope you go on out and enjoy the advantages of building by starting your own home building journey.  You can make the process of planning to build a new home in Colac easy and stress-free by accessing the information on our sister site Build In Oz.
