Display homes for sale - why it's a smart choice for savvy investors


Metricon builds beautiful display homes throughout Melbourne, Regional VIC, NSW, QLD and SA. These display homes are created by some of Australia’s leading home designers, tradespeople and interior stylists to capture the attention of anyone who’s lucky enough to experience the home first-hand.

We’re often asked by visitors to our displays: “can’t I just take this one?”

And, what often comes as a surprise to people, is the answer: “yes, you can.”

It’s no secret that Metricon’s new homes are stunning – filled to the brim with on-trend features and appliances. However, acquiring an incredible home isn’t the only benefit to purchasing an ex-display. Here are some of the other major benefits of buying a display home.

Guaranteed tenant

During the lease period, you have a guaranteed, high-quality tenant – us! We offer a generous leaseback agreement for the duration of the lease, which is decided in advance, so you know exactly what to expect and when to expect it. This removes having to hunt for a tenant and any other complications that can come with renters.

The other benefit of having Metricon as your tenant? We don’t throw any parties, we hardly use the appliances (if at all) and the space will be regularly cleaned by professional cleaners. This results in a home that you know has been taken care of, which you can’t say for sure about any other established home on the rental market.

Home designs built to impress

Display homes are built to impress, which means they’ve been built to showcase the very best design elements we have to offer. When we build a display home, we don’t hold back on premium fixtures, fittings and features, so you reap the rewards of us showing off a little. This even includes the landscaping, which isn’t usually included with a new Metricon home.

Maintenance on us

Ordinarily, when you’re renting out a home, the costs of maintenance come out of your own pocket, but that’s not the case when you buy a display home. While we’re leasing the display home from you, we take care of any maintenance that’s required. We want the display home to stay looking as good as possible while it’s open after all! This is an attractive offer for investors as it’s one less cost to worry about. You can still claim depreciation on the home too. It's a great deal that you don't often find with investment properties!

Top location

When we build a display home, we scope out a premiere piece of land. Whether it’s in the prime spot of an exclusive estate or a sought-after street in a growing suburb, you can be sure we’ve done our research. There’s more to building a show home than picking a parcel of land – we consider what’s close by, the streetscape and the connectivity to major roads before starting construction. It's often on a generous block size too which can help with your rental returns.

No hard decisions

A display home takes all the hard work out of the equation. You don’t need to spend hours researching upcoming trends or popular features. You also won’t need to track the build. We’ve done all the heavy lifting for you. The floorplan has been decided, the inclusions and extras have been picked and the colour scheme is sorted. You even get to see the finished product before committing to buy!
