A display home is a new home constructed and decorated with the purpose of showcasing the builder’s work.
It is similar to what showrooms are to interior designers or furniture retailers. These homes are usually open to the public during specified hours so potential buyers can take a tour of the house and see a replica of a would-be home. Some builders also offer private tours by appointment.
Display homes generally include several furnished rooms and outdoor living spaces such as patios and gardens. They are an essential marketing tool for builders and can significantly influence the buyer’s decision.
Why visit a display home?
A display home provides an opportunity to view and compare different builder’s homes.
This allows potential buyers to get a sense of the floor plan and layout, construction quality, and finishes. Display homes have a range of design features on show, giving visitors inspiration for their own homes. As the display home is furnished, you can see whether and how your furniture will fit into the space.
Visiting a display home is a great way to understand a particular home’s overall look and feel.
