Busy Times for Stroud Homes Sydney South West
It’s been a hectic year so far and the team at Stroud Homes Sydney South West have been keeping busy. They’ve just handed over their first home a couple of weeks ago, and are set to handover another this month.
In the competitive Sydney market, it’s Freddy Khachan’s friendly attitude and personal touch that makes the difference with Stroud Homes.
Before opening the Stroud office, Freddy was building for the family company in Bourke, experiencing the outback hospitality he now passes on to his Sydney clients.
One exciting thing Freddy has noticed in the Sydney area this year is that land is becoming more available to first home buyers. There are even a number of house and land packages on offer in new developments such as the suburb of Austral.
“The investor rush seems to have slowed, but this is freeing up blocks for young families,” Freddy says.
In spite of this there can still be a long wait for land – almost a year when it comes to pre-purchasing blocks. That’s why Freddy has developed a fast-tracking process, allowing him to have all certification completed ahead of land registration. This means families get their new home built long before many of their neighbours.
But it’s important not to rush into the process. “Due to the high cost to land, it’s wise to shop around for the right block.”
You also need to find the right builder. New home buyers who rush can find themselves paying for a lot of extras they thought were included, ending up with a home that’s not built to the quality they were expecting.
