With so many housing options out there for first home buyers in Perth, it is often hard to make a choice. You can rent an apartment, buy a condo, purchase an existing house or even build your own home. If you are trying to find an ideal home for you and your family, nothing beats building one from the ground up. With a specific budget in mind, you can build a house according to your needs. Not to mention that the government also has some several grants and subsidies you can qualify for as a first time homeowner. That said, here are some tips to help you build the perfect home.
Builders in Perth, WA can now complete their projects and fulfil the dreams of aspiring home owners much quicker than ever, thanks to state reforms. Dubbed the ‘instant start initiative’, these reforms to Western Australia’s building approvals process for single residential housing projects allow registered builders to begin construction “upon lodging a certified permit application while the application was processed by local government,” as reported on Perth Now.
Previously, building approvals that should only take 10 days to be issued took an average of 24 days to be processed. That meant homeowners had to spend an additional 3 weeks’ worth of rent when they could have moved into their new homes much sooner. The instant start initiative help ensure that such cases are a thing of the past.
