Visiting a show home is often the exciting first step when buying your new build. Here are our top tips to help you make the most of your experience.
When you visit a show home you will instantly get an idea about the quality and integrity of the homebuilder from the condition of the development, even if it is still a building site. If it is well organised and tidy you can reasonably expect that your home will be built to the highest possible standards.
While you may not be visiting the actual house you are moving into, visiting a show home should give you an accurate impression of the quality of your new home. Look closely at details such as kitchens and bathroom fittings, floor tiles, carpets, electrical sockets and windows as these should reflect the quality of other houses on the development.
When you visit a show home, consider arriving half an hour early so you can explore the surroundings. After all, this could become your future home so it is worth considering whether you can picture yourself living there.
Show homes often display the highest spec fixtures and fittings available in order to present them in the best possible light. Unfortunately, these fixtures can often carry significant hidden costs.
At Meadowview Homes, we are proud to offer the best quality fixtures as standard. Ask your sales representative what is included in the price of the house, and what could be an upgrade item. Subject to the progress of the build, you will also be able to make decisions regarding the specific fittings in your new home so ask about the options that are available to you.
Visiting a show home is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the home or the development. You may want to ask about local schools, timescales or expected council tax bands.
