When it comes to building a home, choosing the right design and finishes requires a lot of time.

Every aspect takes careful consideration, from the layout and functionality to the colour schemes and flooring. 

Thankfully, digital technology has opened doors to simplify the process, helping buyers plan every detail of their new home build at the touch of a button.

Choosing the right home design can be a time-consuming process.


For prospective homeowners in South Australia, Fairmont First is a simple and affordable pathway to new home ownership. The release of their new Design & Price interactive quoting tool offers a seamless and stress-free home planning process. 

Select your design and style

Whether you’re looking for a modern open-plan layout, a cosy traditional design or something in between, the home design tool offers a range of style options to browse and choose from.

The interactive platform explores choices such as home designs, floorplans, finishing touches and optional upgrades so you can visualise your new build in real time. 

“It’s a really easy process and gives you a better idea of what the home is going to look like,” explains Jenny Bromley, housing consultant team leader at Fairmont First.

“You can pick a floorplan, go through all the upgrades, and see what colour schemes you want. 

“It’s great for people designing their own home as they can see everything match up. It’s all there on the screen.”

The interactive home design tool from Fairmont First allows you to visualise your new home in real time.


Fairmont First’s streamlined build process also factors in the “real costs” of upgrades and finishes, making it a breeze for buyers to manage their finances, Bromley adds.

The tool helps clients connect with the Fairmont First sales team online, enabling outside South Australia to start the building process without having to travel.

“It’s a great tool for investors, especially those interstate, as they are now able to do their selections online,” says Bromley.

Adelaide in-demand from investors

The innovative platform is already proving popular, particularly as Adelaide continues to entice homebuyers for its liveability, affordability and growth potential.

“Adelaide has been the strongest performing property market since the pandemic,” says PropTrack economist Anne Flaherty.

Apart from its great lifestyle offering for homebuyers, including schools, wineries and open spaces, Adelaide’s “chronic under supply” makes it a go-to for first-time investors and landlords, Flaherty adds.

Fairmont First’s house and land packages offer an affordable pathway to home ownership.


“The vacancy rate is just 0.67 per cent. That makes it really attractive from an investor perspective because that signals there will be a lot of rental growth in the future,” she says.

Affordability is another drawcard, with a median house price of $697,000, compared to Melbourne’s $815,000 and $1.07 million in Sydney. This provides a great opportunity for investors who have been priced out of these markets.

First choice: the right builder

Bromley says it’s essential to choose the right partner for your new build, especially in a time of high demand for homes.

Fairmont First, an affordable pathway from Fairmont Homes, has “an excellent process” for buyers with plenty of house and land packages available, she says.

“Our aim is to offer value, affordability, and to get people into quality homes.”

With a simplified design and selection process plus access to some of South Australia’s most sought-after land, Fairmont First is a good option for first-time investors.

Buyers can choose from boutique developments like The Entrance in Adelaide’s north, and Vista in Seaford Heights, which is just minutes from the ocean, transport, schools and amenities.
