First home owner tips

Everything to consider as a first home buyer

It’s one of the most important and exciting times in anyone’s life – your first home. As with anything new, you may either have little knowledge or feel overwhelmed by all the information out there. Marigold not only offers you competitively priced packages by some of Australia’s top builders but is also here to guide you through owning your first home. Here are some of our top tips. 

Understanding Your Financial Situation 

Taking a holistic view of your finances requires more than just saving for your deposit, it requires a realistic understanding of all the costs associated with buying a home, from fees and stamp duty to the fact that you will be solely responsible for paying all the maintenance and upkeep of your home. This understanding will allow for a happy transition to a homeowner with minimal surprises along the way. It can be surprising to learn that a mortgage can be relative to or even cheaper than the rent you’re currently paying. Also, with record-low interest rates, it’s never been a better time to start your homeowning journey.

Your deposit matters 

The usual aim is to save up 20% of the loan value to avoid lenders mortgage insurance and make your mortgage repayments far easier in the long run, however, it is possible to purchase a home with a deposit of far less, just be aware of the extra cost you will incur. To sweeten your first home loan deal, Marigold will pay your interest for the first 12 months of your loan. The process is easy. Choose your dream lot up to $380,000 purchase price, select your builder and dream home then once your land settles you don’t have to worry about your repayments for 12 months. See here ​for more details. 

The First Home Owners Grant 

In purchasing a house and land package you stand to have quite a few benefits coming your way, from the First Home Buyers Grant (if you meet the eligibility requirements), which currently offers $10,000 for Victorian applicants buying or building a new home valued up to $750,000 to save on stamp duty – which is only paid on the vacant land, not the future house. 

Always seek pre-approval 

There is a degree of certainty with pre-approval that allows you to pursue a dream home knowing what you can comfortably afford, a mortgage that allows you to have the home and the lifestyle you desire. 

Marigold is here to answer all the questions that you’ll have on your journey to a homeowner, so give us a call on 1300 888 181 or drop on by and chat with the team at 1030 Dohertys Road Tarneit VIC 3029 


How to choose the perfect floor plan for your family

You’ve chosen to settle your family in beautiful Marigold at Tarneit – now comes the challenging and exciting part – building your dream home. Before you’ve even thought of the budget or what you’d like to see coming home every day, you need a floor plan. How does one even begin? Thinking about a home from the top down doesn’t come naturally to most of us, so here are a few tips to help you select the perfect floor plan for your family. 

Consider your block and size 

This is the easy part – you already know how big your block is; now you must figure out how much of it you want to use. Do you want a big backyard or something more low maintenance? Perhaps you want a bit of grass for the kids to play as well as a deck. This means less space for indoor living. It’s up to you and your family’s preference. 

Privacy vs open plan living 

Open plan living is a popular choice, especially if one wants to entertain and enjoy wider and breezier spaces. However, as children grow older, they will crave privacy and quieter spaces to study (or play video games…) Considering the needs of your family are helpful in whittling down your options. 

Building up or out? 

Homes that cluster living spaces and bedrooms off to the side can often solve the privacy vs open living problem. Another alternative is building up to save on space for bigger backyards or entertainment areas. The kids can “rule the upstairs” while parents can entertain guests uninterrupted down below. You could also have living quarters all upstairs with a downstairs reserved for living, dining, and lounge areas. 

The entertainer’s home or one for the family? 

Floor plans can cater to how often you entertain; do you want something that welcomes guests as they walk through the door such as a foyer that opens into an open living area? If you enjoy more private moments with your family over hosting friends, a formal living room near the front door separate from the family area may be a better option. 

Your present and future lifestyle 

Though it might just be you, your partner, and your newborn right now, your house should cater to baby number two (or three!) if you’re planning on starting a bigger family. Sacrificing some living space for bedrooms or extra bathrooms might not be on your radar now but will become useful in the years (and decades) to come. Having children run around is also something to consider. 

Wider hallways and higher ceilings might not be a priority now, but it’ll be what your family needs later on. 

Other factors to consider 

Other floor plan additions to consider is storage – do you need lots of storage? Perhaps additional storage in the garage? If you have furniture you want to use in the home, also consider its placement. Planning around what you have is smart and can save you money. 

Luckily, Marigold has many options for you to find the perfect floorplan in your perfect home. Contact us on 1300 888 181 or visit our Sales Office on 1030 Dohertys Road Tarneit VIC 3029 (cnr of Dohertys Rd and Derrimut Rd) and let’s begin the journey to owning your dream home. We’re open 7 days a week from 11am-5pm.
