3 Steps to Home Ownership
With the right guidance, building your first home is a simple 3-step process. Firstly, our construction finance specialists will help you work out your budget; they’ll find the perfect home loan for your circumstances and arrange any government grants that you’re entitled to.
The second step is selecting a location – with great relationships to many of Perth’s best land developers, our consultants will help you find the right block of land at the right price.
Once that’s been taken care of, it’s time to select your house design – with a wide range of options tailor-made for first home buyers, our consultants will work with you to choose a floor plan that suits your lifestyle.
That’s three easy steps for you – and now you can sit back and relax while we build your amazing new home!
The first step in your home ownership journey is getting your finances sorted. We can help you set a realistic budget and put you in contact with a broker – getting you on the right path to the right loan sets you in good stead for your first home purchase.
Next, it’s time to work out where you want to live. We can help you find a great block of land in a location that suits the way you want to live, whether north or south of the river. With access to great land from some of Perth’s best estates, we’re here to help.
Now let’s make it real! Your brand new DreamStart home will include amazing features like Essastone benchtops, quality appliances, and plenty more. Select your floor plan from our wide range of designs – there’s sure to be a home that suits you perfectly.

The Finance, Land, and Home Process
Shopping for a home can be exciting – so much choice and so many well-finished homes to draw inspiration from. However, from a first home buyers perspective, it is worth putting the process of getting into your own home into a logical order that will help avoid the common mistakes that many first homebuyers make.
Step 1: Finance
For instance, most first homebuyers in Perth automatically gravitate towards finding the perfect home design first, when in actual fact that should be the last thing they look at. Instead, the initial focus should be placed on FINANCE, which will help determine what you can afford to borrow and when you can afford to do it. This avoids falling in love with something initially that may be way out of your budget!
At DreamStart Homes, we specialise in helping our clients understand the requirements for financing a new home. Through our in-house finance brokers, we can ensure you get all the information you need related to your own financial situation, before helping you onto the next step in the process.
Step 2: Land
Before we jump back to that home design everybody loves to get excited about (we will get there, we promise!), the next step is to narrow down the LOCATION that you want to be in (and that your budget allows you to build in).
When looking at location and land options, we love working with our clients to come up with a perfect combination of all their requirements to ensure their new home is ideal for their individual situation.
For example, we have land estates close to parks, schools, freeways, public transport, major shopping centres and many other amenities, meaning you will never be too far away from the things you value most. We can keep you close to your family (or far away if that’s what you prefer!) and can ensure we fit everything back to your budget, giving you plenty of room to add the perfect home design to your new block of land!
Step 3: Home
That brings us to the easiest bit (and also the most exciting too), the HOME itself! This is where you DreamStart Homes first home buyer specialist can gather a wish list of everything you want in a home and present options that are going to fit your tastes and lifestyle.
Whether it’s a 3×2 or 4×2, has a theatre or a study, fits a large block or a small block, or has any other special feature that you can’t go without, we can work with our design team to come up with a design that ticks all the boxes – at a price that’s more affordable than people usually think!
So, when it comes time for you to start the process of looking for your first home, remember to stick to FINANCE, LAND and HOME in that order, which will help to avoid the common pitfalls that many first homebuyers make – after all, you don’t want to fall in love with a home you can’t afford, or sign up for a block that you can’t fit your dream home on!
