Beat the NCC Price Rise

Beat the NCC Price Rise

From 1 May 2024 changes to the National Construction Code (NCC) come into effect. 

These changes are great long term, improving home running costs and making homes more accessible for everyone, but they do come at an extra cost up front.

Eight Homes offers you a unique opportunity to lock in one of our current and more affordable designs before the changes take effect.

Act now to secure current pricing

To take advantage of the current pricing and promotions with Eight Homes, you’ll need to sign a Preliminary Works Contract (PWC) and pay an initial registration fee by 30 April 2024.

How the changes may affect you

What are the NCC changes?

The upcoming NCC changes will raise the minimum energy efficiency rating for new homes from 6 to 7 stars and require homes to meet the Silver level of Livable Housing standards. For more detailed information, visit:

Livable Housing – Silver Level

What are my options?

Buy before 30 April and pay a lower price for current NCC standards which include a 6-star energy rating without mandatory livable housing features. Buying now will also ensure you can get the floorplan design you’re looking at now should it no longer be available or modified after the 30 April.

Buy from 1 May and you’ll pay more but you’ll receive a 7-star energy rated home and a Silver livable housing rating.

What happens to current floorplan designs after 1 May?

From 1 May 2024, all our current floorplans, options and inclusions will no longer be available as every design will be updated to comply with the new changes. The changes will also affect our standard inclusions and upgrade packs.

How much will prices go up with the required changes?

The required updates to meet these new standards will increase costs by an estimated $20,000-$30,000, depending on the specific design and changes needed.

While these changes do add cost up front, there are benefits later with reduced running costs of the home. Plus, the changes will help the wider community with the Livable housing requirements making home more accessible to more people.
