Ken Beissel - CEO

David Reid Homes Australasia now 100% Australian owned

Exciting times ahead for Australia’s leading custom home building franchisor! 

As CEO and Managing Director of David Reid Homes, I am delighted to announce that I have moved to 100% ownership of David Reid Homes Australasia with my family company completing the buyout of the New Zealand based majority shareholders in July 2021.

As part of the buyout, the Beissel family acquired the worldwide rights for the David Reid Homes IP.

With over 45 years in the building industry and 25 years involvement as a leading player in the building franchise sector, I am very excited about growing the David Reid Homes franchise into the leading building franchisor in Australia.

Already a strong franchise on the eastern seaboard particularly since I accepted the CEO role in David Reid Homes Australasia in 2011, David Reid Homes will be looking to expand its franchise numbers of quality builders across Australia. At David Reid Homes, we specialize in building quality luxury homes with our franchisees accessing a structure of world class business and marketing systems enabling our franchisees to grow sustainable businesses – great opportunities for builders looking to take their existing business to a higher level with a network of like-minded colleagues supported by world class systems.

Many have already become David Reid Homes franchisees resulting in testimonials like this one featuring our Tamworth franchisee.

David Reid Homes Tamworth Testimonial – Stuart Watts

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss the benefits of becoming a David Reid Homes franchisee with builders keen to take their business to a new level – kenbeissel@davidreidhomes.com.au

I am proud to mark the occasion and celebrate this milestone of David Reid Homes’ becoming 100% Australian owned!

First Home Buyers – Did You Know?!

First home buyers, you could own your own piece of luxury/custom built on 5% deposit

As of July 1st 2020, the Federal Government has opened up 10,000 more spots for first home buyers looking to crack the Australian property market with a minimal deposit. Known as the First Home Buyer Deposit Scheme, the benefit allows first-time buyers to put down just 5 percent deposit for a property with the government acting as guarantor for an additional 15 percent, so that the usual Lenders Mortgage Insurance is not required – Big savings!
As of January 1 this year 10,000 applications – for couples and singles alike – were made available, with a second 10,000 made available July 1 2020, for the 20/21 financial year. It’s a promising initiative for those looking to buy or build, but industry research has found that as many as eight-in-ten first home buyers don’t understand what the scheme is or if they are eligible to take advantage of it.


First Home Loan Deposit Scheme Price Caps:

In order to access one of the 10,000 First Home Loan Deposit Scheme applications, the property you are purchasing/building must fall below a certain threshold.
These are:
State/territory: Capital City/Regional Centre: Rest of State:
NSW $700,000 $450,000
Vic $600,000 $375,000
Qld $475,000 $400,000
ACT $500,000 N/A

There are a few other grants to be taken advantage of. This includes the new HomeBuilder Scheme and the First Home Owners grant.
