So you’ve started researching, ready to take the plunge and start your home build journey. As you start looking around you’ve started to hear the words ‘turnkey package’ thrown around. A LOT. A turnkey package is a home bundle deal that means you get a few extra features added to your new home to make sure it’s liveable from the moment you ‘turn the key’.

Buying your first home is one of the most exciting and memorable moments of your life! Not only is it commitment to the next stage of your life, it’s also an investment for your future (and your future family). As you start visualising about which couch will suit the Netflix binge, the size of an outdoor TV to watch the footy on, or if you want a pizza oven to rival the restaurant down the road, the excitement can get the best of you and before you know it, you’ve missed out on a very important step. There will be a couple of things to do before you can start calling the removalist van! We find a lot of our clients quickly realise that they’re focusing on the end details and missing the important stages to get you there. That’s where turnkey packages can help!

Turnkey packages offer stressed, time-poor and overwhelmed clients easy fuss-free options, helping you go from an outside shell to a home ready to move in to.

A misconception that comes with building a home is that your house will be ready to live in from the moment of handover. In reality, this is when you need to spend a little bit of time working with the basic foundations of your house, allowing your creativity to take shape and start creating a home.

What is included in a turnkey package?

Each builder’s turnkey packages vary but we’re proud to say that ours are very competitive and we believe we offer the best value for money!

A turnkey package generally includes the following items:

  • Air Conditioning
  • Quality flooring
  • Window treatments
  • Internal wall painting
  • Plus, depending on the location of your new home, the package you’re signed up for and the estate you are building in, additional items can all be a part of the turnkey package such as:

  • Letterbox
  • Clothesline
  • Fencing, and
  • Landscaping

  • Mojo Urban Living in Cockburn Central: https://www.somo.com.au/mojo-urban-living/
  • In a nutshell, a turnkey package is essentially a home upgrade where you get exterior and interior wall painting, flooring (that includes tiles or wooden floorboards) and window treatments such as curtains or blinds. Most of our clients prefer this option because it means they can fully relax knowing their home can be ‘move in ready’ from the moment they get the keys.

  • What are the benefits of a turnkey package?

    One of the main benefits that our clients rave about is that our basic house and land package, with an added turnkey package, means less stress and more living!

    The hassle of organising additional items can take its toll on the fun of building your first home and a turnkey package allows you decide on the housing essentials, get them out of the way, and focus on the fun interior shopping like furniture and decor.

    Another great advantage is that you don’t work with multiple contractors and businesses to include the extra additions. Turnkey upgrades mean you stick with your homebuilder and let them take the reins on the small stuff. They know the best order to get these items ticked off the list, talking to all the right people to avoid miscommunication, and because you deal with the same people from start to finish – smooth sailing for you!

    We believe EVERYONE should have a space of their own at SOMO, so contact us today to discover how we can build you the perfect home and with a turnkey package.
