Matthew Wells - October 5, 2020

If you’re building on a budget, you want to make every dollar count – and so you should! Buying or building a home is a huge financial and emotional commitment, and we went to deliver you an experience that’s second-to-none in terms of both value and customer service.

Our Escape range provides the quality and attention to detail you’ve come to expect from an Arden home at an affordable price point. We’re really proud of what this range brings to the table, so we’ve listed a few reasons why we think you should consider building an Escape home.  

Quality and value

Just like every other Arden home, our Escape range is built to the highest standard, using quality products and materials from reputable suppliers. There’s no cutting corners, no bargain basement products and no generic no-name suppliers.  

The same architects who influenced our Aspire and Lumina range floor plans also look after our Escape range. That means you’ll benefit from intelligently crafted floor plans and sophisticated designs that maximise space, style and light – all with a first-home-buyer price tag. We also use the same construction teams across our Escape range as we do for our other ranges – and the same care is taken throughout your build.

Industry-leading standard inclusions

It’s the finishing touches that turn a house into a home, and our standard inclusions are what truly set an Arden home apart. From Caesarstone benchtops to stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and fridge freezer, to Hebel render, our extensive list of inclusions is carefully assembled to provide value in all the right places.

We’re also really committed to clarity around  what’s included and what’s extra, so you can compare costs easily and get a true idea of what your home will cost before you get started. We’ve run some comparisons with similar ranges and products from other builders, and we’re proud to report that the inclusions in our Escape range stack up better than all of them. 

Honesty and transparency

If the advertised price of a new home seems too good to be true – it probably is. There’s no truer example of ‘you get what you pay for’ than when it comes to building a home. 

A lot of builders will advertise a super low base price to get budget-conscious buyers through the door, but won’t tell you that the base price doesn’t include really basic things that you’d expect to be included – like flooring! They’ll also often underquote on items like site costs, then sting you with the extra balance down the track, once you’ve committed and paid your non-refundable deposit. We’re proud avoiders of the honey-trap model, and we’ll always tell you the total cost of your build up front. We might seem more expensive at first glance, but in terms of value for money – we come out on top once inclusions are factored in.

Personalised service and genuine care

Because we cap the number of houses we build each year, we’re able to offer more personalised service than most volume builders. We’ll never take your deposit and leave you in the dark, especially when you’re a first home buyer needing additional support. Our experienced and caring team will guide you through every part of the build process, from selecting the perfect land estate and securing finance, to celebrating with you when we hand over the keys to your new home. 

Just like every Arden home, our Escape range is an expression of our values and deep commitment to our customers. We passionately feel that building on a budget shouldn’t mean compromising on quality, safety or service – you deserve the best!
