2022 is here but the pandemic continues to hover above the lives of Australians in the form of the Omicron variant. But instead of avoiding the virus, living alongside it has become the new norm and it’s not stopping people from looking for a new home. The country’s economy has experienced a housing boom in the past two years, driven by interstate migration and suburban relocation. Lifestyles have drastically shifted from living in highly dense urban cities to the more spacious and less crowded suburbs pushing up demand.
But Bloomberg is already predicting that the “housing boom appears to be over, with growth poised to fall as low as 5 percent this year after a 22.1 percent rise in 2021.” It claims that last year was the sharpest and strongest rise in the housing market since 1988. However, ABC News cites that it may be more of a buyer’s market come 2022 according to Tim Lawless, CoreLogic head of research. This means home buyers like you can snag up some beautiful display homes in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and other cities at a better price. And here are the advantages of making that move now!
Ease of moving in
With home prices falling in Sydney, it’s the perfect opportunity to find a new home and move right away! Display homes are “what you see is what you get.” They are already furnished and completed by the developer or builder and all you have to do is move in! There are websites that already offer detailed descriptions of display homes and even “virtual tours” with 3D views and floor plans. You’re not just buying a house, you’re already buying a home.
Spend your time and money on other priorities
While there are people who love to plan their dream home from scratch, some just find it a major hassle. If you’re one of the latter, then display homes are best for you to consider. You don’t have to think of an interior design or what furniture to pick. At times, you don’t even have to buy the appliances you have to use or what tiles to match with your wallpaper. Your precious time and money can be spent on other priorities.
Enjoy the best features
Remember that display homes showcase the builder’s idea of what an ideal home is. If it matches your expectations then you are bound to enjoy its best features. You’re basically walking into your new home with all the upgrades, details, and pieces you may not have even thought about. All you have to do now is live the life you’ve always dreamed about!
