We’re here to help guide you on this exciting journey!

We’re here to take the hassles out of the building process and make sure it’s a great memory for you and your family for all the years to come. If there is a question you have you don’t see on the list, drop us a line and we’ll happily answer any questions you may have.

  • My Home Purchase
    • I'm thinking about building. What are my first steps?

      Dreaming about that new home build? There are two key things to think of when considering a new home build.

      You’ll need to consider the lifestyle you have and want, this will help you understand the type of home design best suited to you, so you can get the most out of your home. Secondly, and not so much fun but still very important, you’ll need to consider what your budget is.

      Once you have an idea of these, we can help with everything else, from home design to finding the perfect block of land to styling your new home!

    • Can I customise a standard home design?

      We pride ourselves in having the largest offering in types of home builds to compliment our range of home designs. We do everything from single, to double to framed, double brick, slab and everything in between.

      These are then matched with one of our home designs and we seriously have something for everyone here. From the entertainer, to the growing family and young couple. Our consultants can help create a plan to suit your lifestyle to a tee.

    • What is a variation?

      We always aim to create homes with our end client in mind, so we put ourselves in the shoes of the end client. This way we create a home design that is guaranteed to please.

      We do understand sometimes you’d like to make some minor variations to our home designs- and this is totally fine, we want you to be as happy as you can with your new home. A variation is any change made to a standard home design. This can be something as simple as adding a door or adding an additional room or features, but we’ll work with you and won’t stop till you’re happy!

    • Can I purchase an existing display home?

      Absolutely! And with perks like these why wouldn’t you want to? It’s the hassle free way to earn guaranteed rent return of around 6% for up to five years. Your home will come with premium finishing’s, landscaped gardens and backyard and a professional cleaning service a couple times a week.

      These are our display range specifications which means your’e getting all the extra trimmings and added bonus value with guaranteed rental return of around 6%, so if you decide to sell your home you’ll be getting more bang for your buck!

    • Can I get my block assessed?

      Yes! We love coming out to blocks of land and helping you visualise what your new home could look like.

      Plus this way you have peace of mind knowing that your builder has seen your block of land and will be able to provide you more accurate costings when it comes times to build. Just give us a call and we will organise a time that is suitable for you to come out and assess your block.

      We are pleased to say, we have just upgraded all our standard specifications, which means you now get the premo stuff at the same affordable price. Our inclusions will depend on the type of home you are building. And you always have the option of upgrading the little things that are important to you.

    • How do I choose the right block of land?

    • What is a turnkey package?

      Turn key, can means different things to different builders but for us it’s very simple – it’s a combined home and land package that makes your home ready to move into. And with our one stop shop interior styling sessions it really is a turn key package. Perfect if you’re keen to move into your new home quickly.

      Our turn key package includes floor coverings, window treatments, air-con and raised ceilings. Inclusions on turn key packages will vary with the type of build you decide on and there is always the option to upgrade on the things that are important to you.

    • How long does a build take?

      We’d love to say we can snap our fingers and voila your home is ready, cause we want to get you into your new dream home as quick as possible, but alas quality and design takes time.

      The length of a build will depend on your chosen home design and the type of approved structural build you’ve chosen. For example framed housing has shorter lead times then say a double brick build. If you’re building a two storey you can have a mix of these with framed on top and this will reduce your home build timings.

      We will always aim to get you into your new home as soon as possible but quality and giving you the home of your dreams is the most important to us. Once you’ve settled on a home design and block of land, your consultant will be able to advice on estimated build time.

    • Can I find a home and land package with you?

      Yes! We’re passionate about finding our clients the perfect block of land to pair back with one of stylish home designs that express who you are.

      We have home and land options across Perth, whether it be the coastal life or the city life or the dream of living in the “burbs” we have you covered, and will scout out the best locations to suit your needs. Plus bonus is having a package option means you save on bank fees as you only require the one loan- it’s a win/ win if you ask us!

    • What if I love where I live?

      We’ve all been there, we love our local coffee shop or the kids have grown up with the other kids from the neighbourhood, you have your regular yoga class you attend locally.

      We can help you stay right where you are, with knocking down the old and building the new! The process is way easier than you may think. We can get the ball rolling and help you through the paperwork and answer all the questions you may have. We will be right with you through every step of the way, making the whole process pain free.

  • Finance
    • I'm not sure what I can afford

      We’ll be honest finance is not the fun part of this process, while we can’t make it fun we can make it pain free. Before you sign on the dotted line, it’s important to think of all factors when considering what you can borrow. In addition to working out how much you can borrow, you’ll need to work out how much of your home loan you can comfortably repay each payment cycle. As a first step, look at your income and all your expenses, factoring in potential interest rate rises.

      Note: Borrowing capacity is usually calculated by reviewing income and expenses as well as other debt, such as car repayments, credit cards or other financial debts.

      Our in-house financial consultant will be able to assess your borrowing power and help answer any other financial questions you may have, and don’t worry there is no silly question they’ve heard it all!

      Learn more about our Finance services here.

    • What will my repayments be?

      This can vary from client to client and depend on personal circumstances. Typically repayments will depend on three key variable factors; amount of loan, interest rate and type of loan.

      It is important to understand what each of these mean and what they are before commencing your build. Our in-house financial guru will be able to make sense of all these numbers for you, but it’s also important to do your own research, talk to friends and seek external financial advice if needed. This way you know you’ve covered all bases.

    • Can Express Living help me with a home loan?

      Yes! We were serious when we said we were a one stop shop! Express Living Homes is backed by Ventura Home Group, the second largest builder in Perth, and can offer financial and mortgaging advice through V Homeloans.

  • Pre-Construction
    • When do I choose my colours and finishes for my new home?

      This is most exciting part of a build for most people! It’s when you get to pick all the little things that make your home – your home! You can make a start on this as soon as you have decided on your home design! As a starting point, be sure to take our online style quiz which will help you make a start with the type of ‘style’ you are based on a few very carefully formulated questions.

      You will also be given a pre-start selection booklet that will take you through all your options – including all inclusions. However, we encourage clients to visit our showroom before their pre-start meeting or visit one of our display homes to get ideas and understand what you want in your new home. The more prepared you are, the smoother and more fun your pre-start will be!

      Plus our pre-start consultants are qualified interior stylists so you know your house will be the best looking one on the block- inside and out!

    • When do I meet my site manager?

      You will have the opportunity to meet with your site supervisor four times while your dream home is being built. Once your site works and foundation or slab is down, your site supervisor will get in contact to organise a time to come out and meet you on site. Between your brick construction (commencing after the slab is down) and till the point of your key handover your site supervisor will be out four times with you to have a look at the progress of your dream home being built, ensure everything is running on time and smoothly and fix anything that requires fixing.

      This is a great opportunity to have a chat to your site supervisor and ask them any questions you may have about your build. While your Customer Coordinator may be your primary contact to set up these meetings, it will be your site supervisor who will meet you on site to answer any questions.

      But don’t stress, if you’ve thought of something after your meeting with them- just ring during business hours or send us an email and we’ll get back to you straight away with an answer.

      At Express we are with you every step of the way!

    • What type of build should I go with?

      There isn’t a one answer fits all with this question.

      The type of build you choose to go with, will depend on a few key factors – the home design you’ve picked that suits your life style, the block of land you have and the type of structural build that compliments both of these. If you’re unsure about any of these, your knowledgeable consultant will be able to recommend the best option(s) for you based on your life style.

    • This is my first build. What's the building process?

      Building for the first time can be a scary process- and we understand this. There is a lot to consider, but don’t stress Express Living have specialists in every area, so you’re assured the best service at every stage of your new home build.

      We start with the foundations of site works, footings and slab. Then comes the bit where you get to see your home take shape! Brickwork and roof cover are next. We’re halfway there! Then we work on the internal- tiling and finishings. And because we want to make sure you’re over the moon with your new home we give you two inspections, one to provide feedback and the second is for final review. Now’s the fun part! You get the key’s to your brand spanking new home to create lot’s of happy memories in!

It also means we can put more energy into creating incredible, innovative home designs just for you.

      QUALITY HOMES, AFFORDABLE PRICES

      Express is the best of both worlds- we are the boutique experience with the power of a project builder. We’re a specialist division of Ventura Home Group (VHG), WA’s second largest and most awarded home builder in WA!  Backed by VHG, Express has the buying power and trade strength to provide stylish, quality homes at affordable prices

      FULFILLED CLIENTS

We want our clients to be proud to show off their new home to friends and family and create many happy memories for years to come in their new home.

      THE WOW-FACTOR

      In fashion they say dress to impress. When it comes to building a home with Express, the same philosophy applies. An Express home design surprises, inspires and excites. It makes people see the potential to apply unique and creative ideas to home building. At Express we’re not afraid to be bold and offer an alternative to other builders that play it safe with cookie cutter homes. We want to stand out from the rest, so you can.

      INNOVATION IS KEY

      We love being innovative, it allows us to stretch our creative muscle, so we can showcase new ideas that keep us at the fore front of home designing. When we challenge the status quo and think differently you get something special, that’s more unique – just like you.

      To do this, we need to look outside our own backyard, by expanding the horizons of design. We take the lead by looking to the world for the latest and greatest building methods and styles. This allows us to make sure we’re able to evolve quickly to meet changing needs and environments- offering our clients a home that is beautiful and reflects them. This is what sets us apart from the rest.

      We strive to make building a new home an easy and enjoyable experience with a supportive sales team and efficient building processes with no hidden costs.
