A high service business
In promoting our business we tend to emphasise our individual design focus. Interestingly, when clients describe our business, they tend to give equal billing to our service. (You have the opportunity on this website to hear directly from clients, by clicking on View.)
Building is a very challenging enterprise, as anyone who has attempted their own renovation will tell you. And the complications start way before construction begins, with a maze of regulatory requirements to navigate. Which is why we are resourced to an exceptionally high level, with all of our people on the left having client contact roles, from front line personnel in our display homes, through designers and contract administrators to on-the-job supervisors. By the time construction starts you will have met many of these people, including your own assigned building supervisor, on call for the duration of the build.

Eliza and the innovative "four homes in a garden" downsizer project in Balwyn North. (Also see Value Options for our "Smaller Smarter" homes at Rosebud.)
Click above for additional information in relation to our mainstream business, individual design for individual clients. See the difference (“apples & oranges”) between ‘project homes’ and ‘individual design’ explained. Also for occasional papers on specific design issues, industry commentary and hiring opportunities.
We know that not everyone has a need for individual design, and we seek to have products that give purchasers access to good design at very affordable prices. An example is our village scale development at Rosebud where less than ten house & land packages remain, priced from $435,000.

Investment Property as an SMSF - Self Managed Super Fund
A considerable number of clients who approach Fasham have similar circumstances and similar housing requirements. That is - their families have grown and moved out, and they are considering Downsizing options such as selling the family home in exchange for building a more manageable property.
With recent changes to legislation regarding Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF`s), an SMSF has become a very viable financial device to make your dream a reality.
If you already have an SMSF you can use it as a base for a deposit to build your new home. If you don't already have an SMSF set up you can use this opportunity to set one up for yourself as the tax benefits in relation to the acquisition of property by an SMSF are definitely worth considering.
Self Managed Super Funds and Property Investment
The Benefits of Investing in Property Development using a Self Managed Super Fund - SMSF are Two-fold.
The best result would be if investors used their low-tax, managed super fund money to expand the stock of housing in Australia by having new properties built.
This prevents flooding the housing markets with prospective buyers and adversely affecting property prices. It also creates more homes that over time will help to ease the Housing and accommodation crisis currently experienced by the Australian housing market.
