Different people will have varying opinions on when is the right time to buy a property. Ultimately you are the one who has to be comfortable with the decision of when the right time is for you and your financial situation.

Like many things in life, the property market moves in cycles. Strong market growth may increase the value of properties, however at certain points of the cycle, the value may remain steady or even decline.

Knowing what point the cycle is at when you are considering your purchase will allow you to make an educated decision on the price you are willing to pay for your property.

It is agreed by most experts that the property cycle goes through 3 different phases before turning full circle.


At Carmel Homes, we understand every designed home is different because every home owner's needs and desires are unique. We know how important an investment your home is and guide each of our clients every step of the way, from custom design to the bespoke build, to make sure they are part of the process.

Why Us?

Carmel Home’s ultimate goal is to ensure a unique, luxury custom home for each client from start to finish. Whereas some builders make a business in building variations of only a few dwellings over and over again, each Carmel home is truly an original, just like you. Moreover, our service offering  as a custom home builder is unique and tailored specifically for each build and each client. At Carmel Homes, we walk the client through the full build of their new home and consider every detail.

Your best option is to undertake a custom build. This allows you to build what you want to your exact specifications and provides an opportunity to show off your style and creativity. It also allows you to choose where you spend your money, making it a good option for those on a set budget.


Here we look at the benefits of building custom home and why you would choose to go this route for your next home.


Designing your new house can seem like an incredibly daunting task. There are a lot of decisions to make and little details to think about. You also want to make sure you do not miss anything and that everything is absolutely perfect.


The problem is, there is no such thing as perfect – particularly when it comes to home design. A home is an incredibly personal thing that should reflect the people that live there. It should suit their requirements, display their style, and fit with their lifestyle.


As such, instead of stressing over creating a ‘perfect house’, you should focus on what will make the property perfect for you. There are a few key personal considerations and design features you need to think about to do this. Here we take a look at what these are and how they can help you create your perfect home.

Choosing to build is a big deal. Whether it’s your dream home, a bespoke development, or a major renovation or extension, there will be plenty of decisions to be made and more than a little time and energy (not to mention money!) to be spent. ​

In many ways, your builder will guide you through the construction process. They will be your eyes and ears on-site and help you identify and overcome any issues. They will also need to act on your behalf at certain times, liaising with your suppliers and managing all of your trades. 


With all this in mind, being able to trust your builder is critical. You need to know that not only can they do the job, but that they understand your vision and have your best interests at heart. You need to feel confident that they respect you, and even when you are not around, they will look out for you and act as if you were.


But with so many builders out there, and most of them seemingly providing the same services, how do you find a good one? 

At Carmel Homes we believe that meticulous supervision is the only manner in which to build a truly custom home. We believe so strongly in this that a "hands-on" approach for all projects has become our building philosophy. While most builders delegate critical work to design teams and foremen, we (the owners) are present at the home sites daily in order to work with our tradesmen and ensure quality control. This superior level of attention is simply one advantage of engaging Carmel Homes as your builder. We take this hands-on approach all the way to mid – size townhouse developments.

Whether one home or 19 townhouses, our promise to you is a one-of-a-kind custom home designed and built with the highest level of design talent, personalized service and top-of-the-line building materials.

We believe that it is important for you to have a strong comfort level with your builder. At Carmel Homes we work diligently to create an environment that encourages communication from the initial stages of planning all the way to completion. This approach will ensure that expectations are set accurately so that there are no surprises.
