Building your first home doesn't have to be a dream

If you've been waiting your whole life for this moment, let's take these first steps together towards your goal of home ownership.

Build your own home in 5 easy steps

Click the tabs below to see the stages to owning your own home.

Step 1. Secure Finance

Before you can choose where you want to live and the house design, you need to secure the finance. This means having a deposit and working with a trusted financial advisor. NOTE: All our house and land packages are offered at a fixed price. This means no hidden costs or surprise fees.

Some questions to ask:

  • Are you eligible for the first home buyers grant?
  • Would a mortgage broker help find a better deal?
  • How can you minimise fees?

Step 2. Choose an Estate

All of our packages are located in estates where we have a partnership with developers. This means you’re getting more than just a house and land, you’re becoming part of a community.

Some questions to ask:

  • How far from work will you be?
  • What kind of lifestyle do you want?

Step 3. Choose a House and Land Package

Once you know where you want to live and you've secured the finance it’s time to start looking at design, layout and inclusions. At this stage we often recommend coming in and talking to one of our sales team.

Some questions to ask:

  • How many bedrooms do you need?
  • How many car spaces do you need?
  • What inclusions do you need?

Step 4. Under Construction...

The good news is that we’ve reduced build times down to 12-16 weeks. Once you’ve chosen your package, selected the inclusions and settled on a final price, you’ll need to start preparing. You’re welcome to review the progress at any time by calling our team on 1300 90 40 40.

Some questions to ask:

  • How can you prepare for the move?
  • What do you need to do so that when you move in everything is working on day one?

Step 5. Move In

Handover is the final stage where all the contracts have been finalised construction is completed and you’re ready to move in to your new home.

Some questions to ask:

  • Have you signed everything and completed all contracts?
  • Have final inspections and utilities checks been done?
  • Where the hell is the remote control?

FAQ

Here are some common questions we get from customers with their answers.

What does fixed price mean?

In buying a home there are sometimes hidden costs and fees from things like plumbing and landscaping. We've decided to remove that uncertainty and offer each of these Capestone, Mango Hill house and land packages at a fixed price. We guarantee there won't be any extra costs beyond the prices you see on our listings.

What type of contract do you offer?

Thompson Sustainable Homes is a member the Housing Industry Association (HIA). These organisations offer plain English housing contracts that comply with laws governing building a home in Victoria. We use an MBA fixed price contract for all our clients that works for all parties involved.

How soon can you start building?

Providing a building permit has been issued we will generally be on site within 3 weeks of signing the contract.

How long will it take to build our home?

The average construction period is 12 to 16 weeks for a standard double storey home of approximately 180sqm and above. The complexity, size and inclusions of the home can affect how long it takes though. The building contract will often stipulate the estimated build time.

What does built-to-boundary mean?

In order to mazimize the amount of space on small LOTS we've pioneered a building process that uses as little room as possible for the walls and fittings.

We've worked with James Hardie and other builders and suppliers to fulfill all the structural and sound suppression requirements in a much thinner system. This means more space inside your home within a small LOT.

What construction guarantees do you offer?

We are legally obliged to provide each contract with a Warranty Insurance Certificate. This provides structural protection for 6 ½ years from the date a certificate of occupancy is issued. There’s also a 90 day maintenance period whereby we come and fix any minor issues with the home after you move in.

What is a terraced home?

A terraced or terrace house is a term in architecture and city planning referring to a style of medium-density housing that originated in Europe in the 16th century, where a row of identical or mirror-image houses share side walls. They are also known in some areas as row houses or linked houses.

Can we visit the building site to see our home?

Yes absolutely. Access is by appointment and during working hours. If you have any questions about the process or want to have an inspection, get in touch with us on 1300 90 40 40.
