Your first home is only six steps away

Step One: Budget

Finance will be the first stage of your home buying journey. With guidance from our network of experienced finance brokers, we will help you to determine your budget. Together we will make sure you’re comfortable with your new home and the repayments.

Step Two: Land

Where do you want to live? Meet with your New Home Consultant to review our range of house and land packages. You’ll also be able to customise your own block of land with one of our home designs. At SmoothStart we can also point you in the right direction with an established house.

Step Three: Design

You’ve got the location, now let’s work on your new home’s design. With the help of your New Homes Consultant you will decide what the facade, floor plan and electrical details will be. At this stage you’ll also make your initial deposit.

Step Four: Colour Selection

Personalise your new home with your choice of colours and finishes. In the Colour Selection Meeting you’ll be able to put in those final details that make the house into your home.

Step Five: Build

Once all the necessary approvals are carried out, it’s time to watch your new home take shape!

Step Six: Move In

The exciting journey of creating your new house is complete! Now all that’s left is for you to move in and add those final touches that make it your Home.
