A Year in Review with Stroud Homes Melbourne North

A Year in Review with Stroud Homes Melbourne North


Happy New Year from the team at Stroud Homes Melbourne North!

Stroud Homes Melbourne North builder and owner David Kirby describes last year as ‘a year of lots of learning’.

He says the company has had its struggles, especially with the downturn in the new home market, but with their new Sales Consultant Mark Booth now on board, things are starting to pick up again.

We have a look in the rear view mirror and speak to David about the outlook for the year ahead.

What was the highlight for your franchise in 2019? You are more than welcome to talk about a few!

Late last year we had clients, Deb and Gavin, that found out seven weeks before Christmas that Deb had an illness.

So, we made it our mission to have them in their new home for Christmas and we managed to complete this.

This house was supposed to be handed over in late April, but it was bought forward so this very lovely family can spend a wonderful Christmas in their dream home.

Congratulations Deb and Gav, we hope you are enjoying your new home!

Did you notice any building trends in your region over the year?

We seem to have had a bit of interest in dual living homes (attached granny flats.)

Stroud Homes Melbourne North is experienced in building granny flats and is the only company in the area with already made granny flat plans and home designs.

We can customise granny flats to suit any requirements but we have a range of home designs that have granny flats attached to them already.


Are there any areas/suburbs in your region where it has been more popular, or becoming increasingly more popular, to move to and build new homes in?

Wandong and Kilmore with the new land releases. But families from Melbourne still look to build as close to Melbourne as they can afford.

What are you most looking forward to in 2020?

We are starting the year off with a good number of builds after a quiet 2019. We hope to keep this going as the more builds we have the better value we can pass onto clients.

Do you have any personal or business-related New Years’ resolutions or goals you are setting for 2020?

I plan to put more work into our systems in order to improve turnaround times from enquiry to contract then to build start, just to be more efficient in our office and on-site.
