There’s nothing like the experience of building their very own home. It can be exciting, rewarding and a lot of fun, but it can also be complicated particularly if it is your first time. Today, Craig Park, Founder and General Manager of Blueprint Homes shared with Dan how easy the building process really is. First question Dan asked, "Craig, What are the main areas people need to consider when planning a new home?" Craig resonded, "It's actually quite a simple process and we always explain it very carefully. So that the experience much more enjoyable."

The first step is the thinking stage. You need to decide what suits you best. Buying established or building from new. For a first Home buyer, building from new has advantages like the First Home Owners Grant, exemption from Stamp Duty on the home and on land under $300,000 and favourable loan arrangement if you qualify for a keystart loan. For existing home owners it may be a decision about renovating versus moving. Over the coming weeks we'll be taken through the entire build by Craig. From establishing a budget and where and how to get the finance for the build. Check part 2.
