Four contemporary homes sited in the sought after “Whirrakee Rise” estate, a townhouse, a spacious masterpiece overlooking our superb Maryborough Golf Course and another beautifully designed homestead on the scenic hill estate at Carisbrook.

Local Builders Central Goldfields

Central Goldfields Shire Builder

Why build with a "Local Builder" instead of a "Franchise Project Builder"?

At Maffescioni Homes & Design we pride our business on our reputation and feedback via past clients. We have families and appreciate that the biggest asset you probably ever have is your "home" dwelling. Your home is an investment and it is imperative that you plan your dream appropriately and that includes investing in the best staff for the job. 

From the planning stage, to the preparation of personalized plans, to permits & insurances, selection of products and reputable tradesmen; we are the full package! We support the growth throughout the Central Goldfields Shire and encourage the building fraternity to expand. By this we mean the extension of franchise and Project Builders establishing in our area.  This is positive for everyone in our community.

We are fortunate to have the sustainability for both "Local Builders" and "Project Builders" to have a viable current market with the release of recently developed estates - "Whirrakee Rise" & "Calista Gardens" (in progress). 

ADVANTAGES OF A LOCAL BUILDER
You know you can establish a client/builder relationship which will last the duration; they are accessible and answerable to. You need to be able to look a client in the eye 5 years down the track and for them to say they have been happy with the service you have supplied to them - this maybe a door that needs adjustment, a window repair, a tap leaking, or any alteration that occurs over a time frame. Houses are like anything else (a vehicle, a family pet or yourself - it will need to be maintained). 

With a local builder you are free to inspect your site and premises (under OH&S supervision) over the duration. You can show your friends & family and have direct input of the selection of products from suppliers who are generally locally based and answerable for their products.  If you decide to make alterations for whatever reason you are permitted; you are not locked in to something you may not want or be disappointed in later.  By building locally you also have a good perception of the quality of tradesmen who will be working on your building site. We find that most of our clients are prepared and have already done their homework and researched who is a good plumber, electrician, bricklayer etc. Will you see these people around the street and do they stand by their workmanship; are they proud of their projects and will they maintain them?  You are also supporting our local economy and community by purchasing a local product. You GET what you PAY FOR!

ADVANTAGES OF A FRANCHISE PROJECT BUILDER
They are marketed strategically throughout an expanding growth area; they have a larger range of online house plans accessible on their websites and also display homes in the larger cities to view.  They work on strict contractual terms and guidelines and will supply a faster turnover as they hire a diverse range of sub-contractors.  They are usually cheaper as they often bulk buy from larger suppliers to offer a cost-effective product.

Building Apprentices Maryborough

We would like to congratulate Luke Bucknall who officially completed his apprenticeship last week. Well done Luke! He has demonstrated that persistence and patience has paid off. He is a vital member of our Business and a valued employee and role model. The skills he has acquired are certainly an asset to us.

Maffescioni Homes & Design also welcome to our team our latest recruit - 1st year apprentice - Jordy Rich. Jordy joined our team last month after he had completed two intervals of work placement; we observed his potential and recruited him. Under the guidance of Aaron, Luke & Chris we expect him to flourish in the building trade.

Business is especially busy this time of year; we have completed an "Heritage" listed extension in Ballarat, 2 homes, 2 renovations, 2 entertainment areas.

Our work in progress is spec home at "Whirrakee Drive" which has recently sold at frame stage. We are currently finishing a contract project home in Dundas Rd which has come up great, and the 44 square home out on the Timor Rd is certainly a show piece.

We have two new units currently under way and a new home to be started early 2012.

Building in the Central Goldfields is certainly still flourishing, with the exciting news of the new residential development "Calista Gardens" (old 404 school) and the release of the next stage of "Whirrakee Rise". New homes are still high in demand and keeping the economy moving.

Welcome to "Marley" our mini labradoodle (finally can have a pup that Liam isn't allergic too)

We would like to extend our best wishes to all over the Festive season and wish all our clients and followers a safe and prosperous 2012.

Advantages of Building Rental Units in Maryborough

ADVANTAGES OF BUILDING RENTAL UNITS IN THE CENTRAL GOLDFIELDS

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RENTAL INVESTMENTS

Today's rental climate means that there is a higher demand for rental properties however, there is also an increasing shortage of available properties for rent.

Quality tenants are snapped up by investors, both in the private and managed rental sectors. References are a great tool in providing character and professional profiles, as well as rental history from previous landlords or property managers.

The market is tight, rental accommodation is becoming scarce and the demand for compact, low maintenance units are in higher demand than ever.

At Maffescioni Homes & Design we can offer our clients the opportunity to invest in their future by purchasing an Investment Unit Package. With the opportunity of excellent allotments still available in the Whirrakee Rise Developments we can put together a package viable to your budget and requirements with a fixed price contract with inclusions.

The Central Goldfields Shire has experienced a recent influx of demand for short term & long term rental properties due to the increase of our health services, expansion in the retail sector along with the recent floods. There has been a steady flow of new residents relocating to the area along with a younger family who are building or 20-30 year olds who are wanting some quality affordable independence.

The tax benefits of building an investment property are ongoing. You have the advantage of offsetting your mortgage repayments from your rental income but at the same time acquiring an affordable lucrative investment. Why not discuss this with your business banker or your local tax agent?

For the younger generation you may qualify for the first home savings grant if you reside in your property for a specific time frame then decide to maintain as an investment property.

With the availability of excellent real estate agents and property managers located in Maryborough, you can be assured that your investment will be in good hands. 

At Maffescioni Homes and Design as your Maryborough investment property builder we recommend Maryborough real estate agents Bucknall and Gowers.

HOW TO CHOOSE MARYBOROUGH BUILDERS

One of the questions we often hear asked is 'How do I choose Maryborough builders I can trust?' Of course, At Maffescioni Homes and Design we believe we are a fine choice but we also understand that our clients may need more information when making one of the most important decisions in their lives. Here are a few tips that you can consider when selecting builders:

  • Check that the builder has a license and is a member of an industry association such as the Housing Industry Association (HIA) or the Master Builders Association (MBA).
  • Check the builders comply with the Building Code of Australia, which can be written into your contract.
  • Ask your builders about Home Owners Warranty, this can be taken out by the builder on your behalf.
  • How long have the builders been building? 
  • If the Maryborough builders have display homes go and visit them and check out the quality of the building first hand.
  • Talk to people who have had homes built by the builders you have in mind and ask them about their experience.
  • Ask for a written quote, make sure that everything you expect to be included is listed in the quote.

We recognise that looking for quality and reliable builders Maryborough can be overwhelming and while this is not a comprehensive list, it is designed to give you some ideas of what to look for. To have any of these questions answered by us at Maffescioni Homes and Design, phone us on 03 5460 5604.
