First Home Buyers Guide

Choosing, Financing and Building Your First Home

Choosing Your First Home

Building your first home in Queensland should be a joyful experience, and that’s why at Plantation Homes we are committed to being honest and transparent about pricing, inclusions, upgrades and the purchase and construction process. With Plantation Homes, you also have the piece of mind of building with Queensland's number 1 builder.

You might be single, a couple, a young or growing family, an investor or even an empty nester. There is no stereotypical first home buyer and our passionate team of experts are here to help guide you through the journey.

For first home buyers, a House and Land package is a great option as it removes the hassle of finding your own block of land. Our packages are designed to be fuss-free, all-inclusive opportunities. You can take part in the complete new home process from start to finish – including choosing what the inside of your home will look like. If you already have your lot chosen, you can view our home designs online, or head to a display centre near you to step through our display homes in person.

You can also fast track your journey by purchasing one of our Ready Built homes. Fully completed and ready to move in, or some may be close to completion with only a few months to go.

Simply choose your floorplan, choose your level of inclusion, and then choose your façade – it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. 

Financing Your First Home

Our team of finance professionals at Waterstone Finance can also give you a free, no obligation preliminary finance qualification, so you know exactly where you stand. They can do this onsite at Springwood head office, at a time that suits you.

The first home buyers grant is available in Queensland, as outlined by the State Revenue Office, helping to ease the cost to build a house and helping you into home ownership sooner. Call us today so that we can help you through your options.

Building Your First home

Building your first house can be a daunting experience, but with our expert team there to walk you through every step there is nothing to worry about. There are several steps after you've chosen your home design - some that you may not have even thought about. We have outlined these steps so that you can familiarise yourself with the process of building your first home from start to finish. You can view the full build process here.
