Building a new home can be one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make in your life. At Southern Vale Homes, we understand this and want to ensure your experience is personable and enjoyable, every step of the way.  


One of the greatest benefits of choosing local is the fact that they know the area and the surrounding suburbs. Being well-versed in the lifestyle of the locals and community will assist in ensuring you make the right decisions in your build.  

Another aspect of opting for a local builder and their knowledge is that they understand the local permits and regulations. This ensures that all details of your build are up to code and 100% legal. 


Often recommended through word-of-mouth, utilising local businesses means their reputation is easier to track. Whether it’s your neighbour or the supermarket cashier, a local builder knows people talk and keeping their good reputation is important to ensure future business.  

This community reputation can be an asset in terms of finding quality contractors, suppliers, and sub-contractors and sorting out the bad ones.  

Personal Touch 

Providing a more personalised building experience, working with a local home builder really does add a personal touch. Allowing you to meet with the builder in person, discuss your vision and needs, and receive regular updates on the progress of your project, the local builder is the ideal choice for ensuring a personable approach.  

Keeping the personal touch even after moving in, a local builder is more likely to be available and responsive to help resolve any issues if they arise.  


With established relationships with local suppliers and contractors, local home builders can secure the best materials and labour at lower costs. This value can save you money on your overall building project. 

Another added value is that when working with a local builder, you can ensure that your new home is built to meet the high standards of the local market. This can increase the home’s overall value over time.
