Turn Key Myths Explained

08 Apr, 2022

When considering building your new home, you’ll likely come across the term ‘turn-key’. And often, this definition can vary from builder to builder. So, what does it mean?


A full Turn-key home means that once completed, you can move in and start living. Every detail of the home including landscaping, fencing, and driveway are all complete. When we give our quote, everything is thought through so you know exactly what you are getting. When you receive your keys for the first time, the house is complete and ready for the housewarming party that day!

What do our Turn Key homes include:

  • The home itself
  • Hard and soft landscaping including driveway and turf
  • Fencing and gates
  • Letterbox, clothesline and TV antenna
  • Roller blinds, fly and security screens
  • Reverse Cycle air con
  • All floor coverings
  • 900mm appliances plus Dishwasher
  • Stone bench tops through out
  • 2590mm ceiling heights

It’s not fun getting the new keys to your home only to be up for additional costs to finish off the landscaping and fencing! When purchasing a new turn-key home, ensure to have a full list of inclusions with the package and take the time to review carefully so you know exactly what to expect.

When researching your new home, you’ll likely hear the base price of display homes that fit within your budget! HOWEVER, this can be very misleading not considering the inclusions such as those items listed above.

If it’s not a full turn-key home, then you may be up for thousands of dollars more to cover those items not included to finish off your home. So, although the cheaper price may be enticing, it’s imperative to understand exactly what you are getting.


Whether it’s our Selections or an Exclusive custom home, we ensure our clients have a detailed understanding of every dollar to take out the stress of building. We factor in ALL costs for a full turnkey home to ensure you have a realistic figure to plan and build for your future. Better yet, we offer an extensive suite of design options complimented with an exceptional range of inclusions packaged both for our own land, or yours! From single level, multi storey to split level residences we have options and inclusions to fit a variety of site conditions and budgets.

Just a reminder to ask all of the questions and review any contract thoroughly before signing off. If it isn’t a full turn-key, then there will be most costs coming your way!
