Family Room - Sandalford Home Design - McDonald Jones

Finding your dream home can be a daunting task. With so many new home designs to choose from that cater to a range of budgets and ways of life; we have provided some tips to make choosing the right home for you and your family as simple as possible.

1. Map out your dream home

What features are important to you and your family in your ideal home? Whether you require three bedrooms, a study, would like a big space for entertaining or want the experience of indoor / outdoor living, your needs and desires for your new home should guide you in the selection process. Sit down with your family and jot down a list of everything you want and need in your new home- now and into the future.

2. Location, Location, Location

Whether you enjoy living in an urban setting or love the sprawling countryside, find a location that suits your family’s lifestyle and think about what comes next in your life and your needs both now and in the future. Make sure the location you choose has everything you need for easy living, including schools, grocery stores, essential services like hospitals/doctors, and close to where you work.

3. Stick to your budget

It’s smarter to buy a home that you can easily afford then shooting for the sky and overspending, leaving you with nothing left over to actually enjoy your new home; remember the living aspect is the real exciting bit. Speak to your bank and find out your borrowing capacity before looking for your dream home. McDonald Jones Homes has developed a range of architecturally designed homes for a range of budgets, so that we have a stylish home that will fit your financial margin. Don’t forget we also have special home loan offers available to McDonald Jones customers to make realising your dream home even easier.

4. Check out your options

Once you’ve mapped out a budget and your family’s needs you can start looking for your new home. A great way to see what is available is to visit a Display Home Centre. McDonald Jones has a range of Display Homes located throughout regional and metropolitan areas in New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory, and we are regularly building more so that you can walk through some of our most popular designs as well as new never seen before homes. You can also use the floor plans and information on our website as a guide to working out a style that will best reflect the way that you live. Look for a home that will adapt to your needs and have rooms that can be repurposed to cater to your family as you grow.

5. Ask an expert for guidance

Our Building and Design experts at our Display Homes are there to make finding a home that will accentuate your life as easy as possible.
