What To Look For In A House Builder

When we first started as building designers in Cairns, we realised that there was a real need for luxury homes in Cairns – and that is what we offer. We create aspirational and practical homes that offer a surprisingly affordable way to not only own a home, but also to make it perfectly personalised.

If you are considering new construction homes for under $200k, here are our top tips on what to look for:

  • Previous Builds
  • Find out if your chosen construction company has completed a home like yours already. It is important that you can see these in person if possible, to fully assess the build and the quality of the finish. Your are welcome to book an appointment with CQH to visit our display homes near Cairns.

  • What Services do they Offer?
  • Some construction companies may not offer a full service, end-to-end process. Be sure to find out if you will need to hire other experts or contractors (for example, architects, inspectors or even builders).

  • Client Satisfaction
  • Looking for reviews of the company will help you decide on whether their customer service is good enough. You want to be sure that you are choosing a company that is client-focused and will go above and beyond for your satisfaction.

  • Design and Build?
  • If you are looking for a cleverly designed, pre-planned property, can your construction company provide a choice of designs? Are they able to create a design from your ideas?

  • Land Purchase?
  • When you are building a home, you might have already purchased some land before you approach a company. Make sure they can adapt their designs to suit the topography and orientation. CQH can alternatively offer you a convenient House and Land packag in Cairns to help you with both matters.

  • Standard Inclusions
  • Be sure to understand exactly what comes with your build. Are they going to complete it, including fixtures and fittings, flooring, and landscaping? Some construction companies have limited standard inclusions and will charge more for the ‘finishing touches.

House Prices in Cairns

Are The House Prices in Cairns Increasing?

Cairns is one of Queensland’s most popular destinations for those looking for a new start in a truly tropical home. Tourists visit for the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, but residents of the city have enjoyed the boon of increased investment in infrastructure, job creation and house building that have made Cairns a destination city for those who want to escape the ‘normal’ 9-5 but still be in reach of all the important things (like Gallo Dairyland).

Cairns house prices have been on the increase, while still being significantly lower than the bigger cities. With the current median house price in Cairns at $376,000 (according to Property Value), and a steady increase year on year, buying a house in Cairns is a good investment – whether as a family home, or as a rental property.

Here at Cairns Quality Homes we know that the savvy investor or first home buyer keeps an eye on Cairns house prices to judge the best time to buy or sell a property – and with our handy guide you can see for yourself why it is a great idea to get involved in property in Cairns right now.

What Is It Like To Live In Cairns?

The juxtaposition of city living with rainforest is what makes Cairns so desirable. All the convenience you need for your daily life, with entertainment, shopping, and schools on the doorstep – but a skyline of trees rather than faceless high rises. If you love the fresh air and being outdoors, the beach, parks and nature reserves across the city and the region will be perfect for you.

Glorious white sand beaches attract the sun worshippers, and the pace of life reflects the easy-going attitude that comes from a whole demographic of young, relaxed, and happy people.

Culture is growing in the area, with numerous theatres and museums available to suit all tastes. From art to ballet, and the $71 million Cairns Performing Arts Centre is not the only place for a slice of culture.

Quiet leafy suburbs can be found a bit further out from the CBD, with glorious, large homes surrounded by parkland and stunning views. Families love the great access to schools, with each suburb having access to well-regarded education. For those who love being in the centre of the action, units in the city are available – well-built and a good size to suit young couples or singletons.

Employment has grown in the area, with the increase in tourism offering more jobs – so there may not be a need for a long commute to one of the bigger cities for work. This inclusivity draws the residents together, and a sense of community is a popular draw for all residents in Cairns.

Of course, the tourists come to Cairns for the location – but that is also what makes it a great place to live. Even at the height of the tourist season, there are so many beautiful places and historical sites to visit that even the long-term residents can discover something new. Mountains, mangrove swamps and rainforests are all a short distance away.
