A Strong 2017
The state of the housing industry is always a pivotal point of focus when it comes to the talk around property markets.
It's a key indicator for the economy, it often comes up in meetings or over dinner with friends, and is a favourite story for the nightly news and current affairs programs.
Members of the property industry typically have a more balanced perspective as they are able to relate professional experience to what is reported in the news.
The common theme among the property industry is that the market is continuing its strong run from 2016 into 2017. Tony Bevacqua, General Manager – Business Development, Sales & Marketing, for Creation Homes Victoria confirmed:
“Overall, sales rates on all projects have continued their run from 2016, and the people I speak with in the industry are positive about the state of the market.
Creation Homes confirm it has a number of exciting new developments in the pipeline building a wide variety of products. These include single & double storey homes in the growth corridors through to architectural designed triple-story townhouses in the inner suburbs.
On that basis, I can see the momentum of 2016 continuing through 2017.”
Partnering with Developers & Architects
Relationships are critical in every industry and building/construction is no exception. A good builder will use this information to design a product that matches the needs of the customers. A great builder will find ways to exceed customers expectations and deliver real value.
Tony Bevacqua commented,
“The work we do with developers on a daily basis is based on strong relationships that we have built up over many years. Delivering built form that suits the character of the individual development and delivers a strong sales rate.
Having a selection of appropriate product that offers value for money is really the key in this market. To provide the best result, builders need to work closely with developers to understand the characteristics of the development, how the homes will integrate, and the demographics of the estate.”
In recent years, a growing area of the market has been boutique developments in inner city and inner suburban locations. These projects are designed by some of Melbourne’s best architects with the backing of local or international investors and reflect the rising demand for modern, architect-designed homes and townhouses on in-fill sites.
Speaking from experience, Tony Bevacqua said;
“We've seen an increase in this area and we have successfully delivered a number of these projects.
Given that the Architect designs the homes, the key here is offering customers the full suite of design and construction services and taking responsibility for delivering the project true to the original vision of the architect.
We’ve found that architects are delighted with our ability to address complex design and engineering problems and come up with cost effective build solutions. They also appreciate that we commit to a firm construction timeline.”
