Are you 'Ready To Live'?

When building a new home, budget is generally the ultimate factor in the decision making process. Here at Allworth Homes, our new Ready To Live pricing makes it easy for potential customers to quickly do the sums on a house and land, to compare with the many house packages out there.

Traditionally in the NSW market, builders advertise a ‘basic price’ for the home only. This price does not include a lot of items required to see the home complete. Site costs, BASIX (relating to energy efficiency), Council requirements costs, and more, have to be added to get a true price.

Our Ready To Live pricing structure incorporates all these. It’s essentially an ‘all up’ price, taking the guesswork out of shopping for a new home.

We have been pricing homes on various sites for so long we feel confident in promoting a ‘Ready To Live’ price that will be very close to the final quotation. There are some conditions relating to lot size, services and site fall but in the majority of cases, our Ready To Live price should be spot on.

Every Allworth display home has the Ready To Live price at the front door. That façade, kitchen, those bathrooms – all as you see them are included. Plus, we’ve included ducted reverse cycle air conditioning!

Look out for the orange ‘Ready To Live’ logo coming very soon and contact us with any more information or questions! We would love to build a new home on your land.

According to the December 2014 report ‘A PLAN FOR GROWING SYDNEY’ by NSW Government Planning and Environment – over the next 20 years, the population in Sydney will grow much faster than in the last 20 years. The report* states that, "Projections indicate that Sydney will need around 664,000 additional homes over the next 20 years. New housing will be needed in greenfield locations and the established urban area. Providing housing in a variety of sizes, types and locations will be essential to meeting Sydney’s future housing need."

To respond to these issues, the Government will introduce planning controls and work with the development industry to increase the number of homes in established urban and development areas. The government is also encouraging innovative, well-designed, smaller homes to suit lifestyles and budgets of the growing population.

For the home buyer, this means that block sizes in housing estates are increasingly becoming smaller. With smaller block sizes, it means more demand for innovative designs that don’t compromise on space. Some people won’t consider buying a block of land unless it has the space they need for their ideal home. However, there are many effective, practical and positive ways of building on a narrow block.

Allworth Homes has designed a new 10 metre range called Series 10.0. These designs are suited to a range of buyers. We have combined all the essential living elements to create designs that any family, couple or first home buyers would love to live in. These designs are also great for investors who are looking for a low maintenance, top dollar rental home.

The Viva and Capri are our new single storey designs. These all have open plan living/kitchen areas and spacious bedrooms. There are also some modern façade options available to make first impressions count!

Our double storey 10.0 design, the Marina, has double the space and comes in 3 or 4 bedroom options. One of the major benefits to building a narrow lot two storey design is having more space in your backyard!

Our Series 10.0 designs are affordable and built with the highest quality in mind. You have plenty of optional inclusions to choose from and many variations of each design.

If you’re looking for a narrow lot design without compromising on space, our series 10.0 range could have a design for you.

At Allworth Homes we make quality new homesproject homes for our customers in the Sydney and Wollongong areas. Go to to see our awesome home plans and find out what we can build for you.
