wayne & libby's display home story

Wayne & LIbby with Melissa & Martin Locke

When Wayne and Libby first saw the Martin Locke Homes Isaac 303 display home at Harris Crossing they fell immediately in love with it.

They knew they wanted it as their own and were able to snap it up before anyone else. 

Since then it's won awards including Master Builders 2017 Best Display Home in its category and Best Residential Bathroom. 

Now, two years after buying it they are looking forward to moving in to a 'new' home that has been earning them rental income since 2017. 


Why did you choose to buy the MLH display home?

We simply fell in love with it from the very first time we walked in, it is simply stunning and it will be our forever home. It is quality throughout the entire home.

We keep pinching ourselves when we visit (as you know that is often as we love walking through and hearing other people's comments) that this is our home.

Had you considered buying  display home before? 

No we hadn't.

What do you think is the best thing about buying a display home?

The builder is displaying their best work, so they come with quality fittings and finishes, there is nothing else to do except move in and enjoy life.

Also we get a guaranteed rental income even though no one is actually living in the home.  It has to be handed over to us in "as new house condition". Plus, Martin and all of the MLH family take fantastic care of it and are all a dream to deal with. 

What do you think is a downfall of buying a display home?

The hardest thing is definitely having to wait to move in to your dream home. We love it, love it, love it and can't wait to shift in.

Would you recommend those looking for an investment property to consider a display home?

Absolutely!  Libby and I were in a position to be able to do this, so we did. Our experience has been fantastic.

Why does MLH stand out as your builder of choice?

I am in the business of checking, checking, and checking again. Martin and MLH was highly regarded and recommended to us as a top quality builder and the whole team at MLH are a pleasure also to deal with. On top of that Martin is an ex Cowboys player so that's a bonus as we love our Cowboys and like to support players post their on-field career.
