Many Australians think about building a holiday home, but everyday live and finances get in the way and that dream never becomes a reality.
But with home values climbing month after month, and the median price up about 20% since its bottom nearly three years ago, you maybe considering the idea once and again and that idea of the lakefront, ski or beach getaway place becomes a reality. About 13% of homes purchased last year were intended as vacation homes, up from 11% in 2012, according to the Victorian Association of Realtors.
Yet you shouldn’t let the fact that the market has stabilized drive your buying decisions.
The quickest and easiest way to get a holiday home built, is to go modular. Modular Homes can be built in as little as 12 weeks, compare that with 6 months for a traditional bricks and mortar house and you can see that Modular Homes become a cheap and viable option. Cheap doesn’t have to mean ugly, take a look at some of the great designs from Anchor Homes to see what we mean.
