Prepare for your Prestart!

Posted 13 November 2019

Ever wondered what the most exciting part of becoming a first home buyer is?

Sure, there’s the moment you secure your WA first home owners grant - free money is always exciting! But once you kick-start the pre-planning wheels in motion, there’s another part that is ridiculously fun – prestart!

What exactly is prestart?

Prestart is when you get to pick and choose all those key inclusions, such as doors, bricks, taps, floor coverings and kitchen counter tops.

You can expect your prestart meeting to take place after your building contracts have been presented but before construction commences.

What will happen at my prestart meeting?

We make prestart as fun and easy as possible. You’ll be guided by one of our clever customer service reps who has heaps of experience in mixing and matching different colours, styles and textures to help you achieve that ‘look’ you’ve got in mind. Plus as an added bonus at Easystart Homes, this helpful person will stay by your side during the rest of your building journey to make sure you feel supported and informed every step of the way!

Our state-of-the-art showroom is just another way we make things easy – you can look, touch and contrast all of your choices to help you feel even more confident in your decisions.

How can I prepare for prestart?

Good question! Getting prepped is a great idea, as it can help sharpen your desired style by the time you get to prestart. Websites like Pinterest can provide hours of scrolling inspiration, as can magazines. Whip out your phone and snap pics of colours, textures, fixtures and fittings that you really like.

Display homes are also a great place to see how your potential choices will come to life in a home environment. We have display homes right across the metro area, so you won’t have to travel far! 

While prestart is primarily about the ‘look’ of each room, one extra element to consider is how each room will work. Consider your placement of TV’s, couches and the like, as this can affect aspects such as power point placement. For example, do you want to be able to have your laptop plugged in while you knock out some emails on the lounge?

Get comfy with a virtual prestart!

While we’re more than happy to walk you through your prestart selections, we also give you the option of undertaking your prestart online through our portal! Simply log in at a time that works for you and enjoy making your choices from the couch. Too easy!
