First home buyers have specific needs when it comes to choosing a home. 

The ideal home for most first home buyers needs to be affordable, suit a modern lifestyle, and have room for a growing family. 

For a while now modular homes have been becoming more and more popular as a choice for first home buyers. The flexibility of modular homes together with their affordability and modern convenience makes them a natural choice for first home buyers looking to enter the property market. 

Here we'll look at four of our modular home designs that are ideal for the first home buyer. 

Why a Modular First Home?

Modular homes offer firs home buyers several benefits, such as:

  • Lots of customisation options so you can get the ideal home for your lifestyle
  • Modular homes are extremely energy efficient, saving young families money over the long run
  • Modular building methods are often more affordable than conventional building
  • Modular is fast to build if time is a consideration when planning your first home
  • Modern designs with large open plan living areas to suit young family lifestyles
  • Modular homes use space efficiently, making it easy to turn that spare room into a nursery when needed

When it comes to getting finance on a modular home, first home buyers will find they have an equal opportunity to get finance as with conventional building.
