Bethany & Chris

The moment Chris laid eyes on Bethany at his 18th birthday party, he knew she was someone special.

Eleven years later, and with a recent marriage proposal, Chris and Bethany have finished building the dream home they will share together as newlyweds.

With a wedding to save for, Bethany and Chris were initially attracted to Homebuyers Centre because of the low deposit options available.

"At first I was sceptical, however after our first meeting with our New Homes Consultant, I was more than convinced and extremely excited about getting started," recalls Chris. "Prior to this, I thought we were years away from even starting to consider building or buying our own home."

The couple both agree that their favourite part of the build was meeting with their Prestart Consultant and going to the showrooms to select all the personal touches for their home.

"By far the best part was choosing everything that went in our home and deciding what colours and finishes would work. For us this was the first time the reality of building our first home started to sink in."

Another favourite memory was visiting their block of land for the first time, then every week after to see the progress.

Bethany and Chris' home building tips:

  • You don't need a large deposit to build your first home.
  • Do your homework to make sure your builder can deliver what they promise.
  • Building a new home can be just as affordable as renting.
