How space and light can affect your home environment
The use of environmentally friendly materials to enhance a home
Colour and its impact on daily life
Design that supports healthy living
Contemporary trends and innovations
Spaces that can evolve through changing lifestyles and life stages
The needs of multi-generational families and different cultural backgrounds
As part of Simonds, Start Point is proud to offer the following to our clients:
Fixed Price Guarantee
From the very start of the process, you'll see a transparent, fully inclusive cost that covers developer requirements and site fees - and it won't change.
Lifetime Structural Guarantee
The Lifetime Structural Guarantee is given to you, the original owner named within the building contract. This Lifetime Structural Guarantee is in addition to any statutory Warranty insurance guarantee in force within the relevant state of Australia.
This Lifetime Guarantee will cover your home from structural failure, specifically the foundation and any structural members/components of the timber wall frames and the roof framing. Some conditions do apply and your Start Point Home Ownership Expert can provide more details when you speak with them.
Our Start Point team will support you through the process of purchasing and owning your first home, so you can break out of the rent cycle.

Once you’ve chosen a package, our Start Point builder Simonds Homes will start detailing the specifications of your brand new home, giving you total peace of mind.
Location, location, location.
Where you want to live is a big part of the decision making process for buying a new home. However, we can’t always afford our ideal location. So, when you start thinking about where to live, it’s so important to ask yourself not just what area you want to live in, but also what type of lifestyle is important to you.
Start Point has many land partners with estates that offer a huge amount of community amenities for any life stage or lifestyle. Access to transport, shops, schools, parks, community facilities, sports areas and more. These are all factors to consider when looking at our Start Point home buyer package solutions.
