Building your dream home
Building your dream home can be a truly memorable and rewarding experience. Doing it with Shavida empowers you with confidence, assurance and access to a team of professionals who pride themselves on a holistic approach to helping you achieve those dreams.
Through the building process, you will have access to a dedicated team across sales, customer service, construction, interior designers, colour selection and more. Our job is to ensure the process is as seamless as possible, allowing you to sit back and enjoy one of life’s most exciting milestones – owning your own home.
Our home building process
Prepare your finance
Step 1: Sales phase
Discuss your budget and plans with your bank or financier. We can even point you in the right direction.
Choose your estate and land
Step 2: Sales phase
We can help you find the perfect block of land, or talk to us about our ready-built home options in Ecco Ripley.
Choose your home design
Step 3: Sales phase
Browse design and inclusion options for your home. We'll then prepare your new home estimate. Once you're happy, you will be required to pay an initial $2,000 deposit that enables us to prepare your home building agreement (contract).
Sign your agreement
Step 4: Sales phase
Sign your Home Building Agreement and pay the balance of 5% of the contract price. Our customer service team will be in contact to introduce themselves as your primary point of contact throughout the build.
Visit the Colour Studio
Step 5: Pre-construction phase
Explore your internal and external colour scheme options. We've simplified the process by offering a carefully curated range of options.
Home construction commences
Step 6: Construction phase
This is where your home comes to life! You'll be kept up-to-date as your home is built and you'll also be required to make progress payments during this period.
Quality assurance checks
Step 7: Construction phase
Our quality assurance program includes thorough checks at multiple stages to ensure the highest quality fit and finish and ensure the long term performance of your home.
Completion and handover
Step 8: Post-construction phase
You'll take a tour of your complete home with your Building Supervisor and receive the keys!
Guided by our experienced staff, your colour selection appointment is where you will select both the internal and external colour scheme for your home, alongside select fixtures and fittings.
We pride ourselves on taking the complexity out of the home building process, which is why we’ve simplified it by offering you the option to choose from a range of carefully curated colour schemes.
The whole process of building a home has been wow! If you want the wow factor in the service you receive, this is the place to be. From day one Sekisui really did raise the bar amongst the other 'builders' in the market.
