Designing your own home can not only be an exciting challenge for many families, it also gives you the opportunity to dictate exactly what goes where and leaves you with plenty of room to move when it comes to home decor.
If you don't have a pipe dream already, the latest figures from Master Builders Australia show that new residential buildings are on the rise – your one could well be included in that list. If you're in the market, real estate in Australind might become the most attractive option out there for your new home construction.
Building your own house might be an excellent idea for growing families, but it can also benefit those looking to grow their property portfolios with an investment. Designing real estate specifically for rentals could be a fantastic move for your potential capital gains.
"Despite a dip in the latest building approvals, residential builders can be confident with a strong pipeline of work for 2016," said the chief economist of Master Builders Australia Peter Jones.
"While approvals are off their peak, they continue to hold at a high level despite monthly volatility."
According to a report from Jones Lang LaSalle, the median Bunbury house price rose 0.5 per cent through to November 2015 to $410,000.
Compared to prices in the state capital and in the tourist melting pot of Margaret River, that figure seems like an absolute steal, and you should jump on board before investors start wising up. Perth median house prices are higher at $579,100 according to the BIS Shrapnel Australian Housing Outlook 2015-18, while Margaret River sits close behind at $579,000.
