WHY JANDSON HOMES?
By the time new land supplies had started to dwindle in Sydney in the late 1990s Jandson Homes had already firmly established itself in the growing Knock-Down Rebuild home market.
As leading proponents of small lot housing at the time our Display Centres were amongst the first to actively display and promote small lot housing product.
Another kind of new home buyer enters the marketplace
We soon learned our visitors were not all interested in living in a compact home on a new estate, often long distances from family and friends and the familiar surrounds they’d grown-up in.
Instead they preferred to simply buy or replace an ageing existing home perhaps in the inner west or a beachside suburb or even a holiday home location nearer or amongst the people, places and things that mattered most to them.
Project home economies and quicker construction times
In a market that had previously been the exclusive domain of architects and prestige homebuilders, our new compact and narrower designs became instantly popular with this rebuild fraternity who had been seeking project home economies and substantial construction time savings for their replacement homes for a long time.
Land sizes and shape variations
Though our early design ranges were intended for the many new estates featuring long thin homesites in them in the mid 1990s, the Company began to cautiously introduce small two storey designs to accommodate the growing variations we were beginning to experience in land shapes and sizes in this new marketplace.
A home for all seasons
In early 1998 we were largely unprepared for the response to a cleverly planned two-storey contemporary home for narrower sites we’d called the Astra. Its flexible plans saw its sales quickly exceed all expectations and meant this largely metropolitan Sydney homebuilder found themselves quoting (and winning) orders for the Astra as far afield as the Central Coast, Lake Macquarie and well into the Blue Mountains.
Have expertise-still travel
Since then, the Astra and its subsequent variations have been built in thirty six of the forty four council areas the Company has built homes in over the last decade. Remarkably the Astra still sells at the rate of just under one per week – being testament to its great flexibility and enduring appeal.
Land types we build on
These wide ranging experiences have meant we’ve been able to introduce suitable home plans for almost every type of homesite imaginable including narrow, courtyard and conventional homesites as well as shorter, sloping, battle-axe and corner homesites.
The bottom line
Today Jandson Homes has and still displays homes for almost all these land shapes and sizes and when coupled with the many Council areas it’s still building in, the Company is not likely to retreat from its market-leading role in the Knockdown Rebuild Market anytime soon.
