22 May 2023

With over 70 years experience in the industry, Stockland has the know-how to steer new home builders through all stages of the building process, providing expert guidance to create stylish new residences within communities. 

Building a place to call home takes a careful step-by-step approach. Here’s some tips you should consider to help you achieve a stress-free build: 

Know what you want

Define your needs. Think about all the elements your new home will need to service you and your family now and into the future. How many bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas will you need? How big will the kitchen be? Do you want a patio or balcony? A garden? What about storage space and garage size? Planning is key.

How much can you spend?

From architects to breaking first ground and completion - how much will it all cost*? It’s vital to get your finances* in order by doing up a budget* and then speaking to your bank or mortgage broker*. Most importantly, once you know your budget, stick to it. 

Discover your style

Your individual style and preferences will instruct all elements of your new home. By using our convenient Dreamcatcher tool, you’ll find added inspiration and design direction from Stockland-approved builders. Create your own style board, browse and pin images to achieve your desired results. 

Find the right builder

Your builder will be your trusted partner throughout your home’s construction. Make sure they are registered and licensed. Read their customer testimonials. Visit their past work and decide if they are the right fit for your job. Meet them on-site. Discuss the orientation of your land and the most appropriate layout and planning for the build. Understand the building process and know how to read house plans. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
