EasyLiving for Eye-Catching Value

by Carlisle Homes

When you make the decision to build a new home, there is a whole new vernacular that you will adopt.

Very quickly you will find yourself talking about ceiling heights, downlights and alfrescos, not forgetting door furniture (yes that’s what it’s called!) and so much more. Who knew there were so many pieces in a house! At the end of the journey, you will be able to sit back and admire everything you put together to make your very own home just for you!

Along the decision journey, the key advice to remember is to be sure you are comparing ‘apples with apples’ when it comes to value of inclusions on offer with different builders. Make sure you understand exactly what’s included so there are no surprises along the way that can throw your budgeting out.

With our EasyLiving Series, along with the unique 6-step process and 12-week quick start program, customers also benefit from a long list of genuine built in value with inclusions that just make sense for new home buyers. Some of the main EasyLiving inclusions that differ from a lot of other builders, are worth exploring!

# Site costs, connections and developer/council requirements

When you sign your EasyLiving contracts, which will be ready for you within 2 weeks of placing your initial deposit, all your site costs are 100% locked in, no more to pay. All site costs associated with your home construction are included upfront, so you can budget with confidence. In addition, any costs associated with your new community such as design requirements are all included. Some other builders can add these costs as they arise which can be disastrous for the budget-conscious buyer.

# Flooring throughout

Most advertised prices for new homes don’t include all your carpets and tiles. As standard, builders will include the tiling to the home’s wet areas, which are your kitchen, bathroom, powder room and laundry in the base price. Your carpet, tiling and floorboards are then upgrade options to choose. ALL EasyLiving homes include ceramic tiling to the entry, living and meals area, kitchen, powder room, bathroom, ensuite and toilets, and carpet to remaining areas, making it easy to stay true to your budget.

# Designer touches

Sticking to a budget doesn’t have to mean compromising with EasyLiving, as standard we include stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, like the 900mm wide upright cooker and rangehood. Walk-in-robes to the master suite continue the designer feel, included as standard.

# External features

Brickwork over the windows add a designer element to the external aspect of your home and is a common item many builders leave as an upgrade option. This along with an overhead sectional garage door, and undercover alfresco are standard inclusions with EasyLiving homes.

In addition, promotions can be a great way to add some special designer touches to your home without having to eat into your budget. To get the whole picture, when comparing builder offers and pricing, it’s a good idea to combine the standard inclusions and promotional items to find the right solution to fit your budget and lifestyle needs.

The current bonus upgrades available for EasyLiving customers are some of the best in the market when it comes to value, including;

  • 2590mm high ceilings to ground floor
  • 10 LED downlights
  • Remote controlled garage door
  • Window locks to all openable windows
