Build Journey | Why Arden

Everything you need, right from the beginning



When you walk through an Arden Display home, you’ll see plenty of features you won’t find anywhere else. But perhaps the rarest thing of all? Our complete transparency about every single detail and every single inclusion. 

We’re committed to making every step building your dream home as seamless as possible – and that begins with giving you all of the detail you need, right from the start. 

We’ve recently introduced a QR code system into Arden display homes, making it easier than ever to understand exactly what’s included and what is an upgrade.

Complete transparency: doing it differently

All too often, when you walk through a typical display home it’s unclear what’s included in the base price and what’s an upgrade. It’s impossible to tell if the design you’re seeing looks anything like the home you’ll get. 

The true cost of the display home can be miles apart from the base price. If you ask for details about the true cost of what you’re seeing and what’s actually included you’re met with sales talk and vague answers. 

But not at Arden.

We provide the exact details of every feature, fixture and fitting so you can make an informed decision.

Our Customer Success and Displays Manager, Donna Millington explains it best in saying “At Arden, we don’t hide behind smoke and mirrors. We are proud of our homes and we’re clear from the beginning about our prices, because we want you to make a really informed decision.”

QR codes : Transparency made easy

We’ve always been upfront about our unrivalled inclusions. They’re listed on our website, they’re itemised exactly in our Inclusions Guides and we even have an Inclusions Checklist so you can compare with other builders as you do your research.

But to take it a step further – and to make it even easier – we’ve introduced a new QR code system into all of our display homes.

From the moment you walk into an Arden display home, you’ll see QR code cards with a scannable icon on them. Simply point your smartphone at the icon and you can see exactly which items are standard inclusions, and which items are upgrades. 

These QR code cards are placed in every room, so no matter where you look, you have answers. From the Caeserstone in the kitchen to the soft close cabinetry – no detail is missed!

At a click of a button, you can now see exactly what items are included and what items are upgraded within all of our display homes.

Genuinely exceptional inclusions

We’re proud to share the precise details of our inclusions, because they’re truly unrivalled. In fact, we promise $20,000* towards your Arden home should you find better value elsewhere. 

Donna explains “After many years working in the building industry, I can tell you, our inclusions are so good that people don’t have to upgrade. Our new home consultants do a lot of work, and give every bit of info needed to make a decision. We invite clients to go to other builders and compare us, because we’re that certain. We don’t believe in chasing people down the street for a sale. We have a great product, great inclusions and we want to make people feel comfortable.”
