Displays for Sale

Why buy a display home?

A Porter Davis display home offers families the perfect way to secure their future.  Not only do you secure a spectacular property, completely landscaped with luxury fittings and fixtures as well as window coverings you also enjoy up to 10% monthly return for the life of the display home.

That means Porter Davis will rent it back from you and continue to use it as a display home for up to 24 months, so you can use our rent to pay your mortgage payments.  Positive cash flow with a secure tenant – perfect!  Also during the rental period Porter Davis will continue to pay all outgoing costs including insurance, gas, rates, electricity.  When the rental period finishes you have the option to move in, sell or re-lease the property.  A truly flexible investment!

Porter Davis display homes are for sale across Melbourne and Geelong with the quality and style you have come to expect from us.

The process

The process for buying a display home is the same as for a general real estate sale – with the exception that you already have a first class tenant ready to go!

  • View the available properties online
  • Visit the displays that you love and meet your needs
  • Discuss the house including design, inclusions and comparable cost to build new with your Porter Davis consultant
  • Speak to Choice Home Loans or a lender of your choice to gain finance approval
  • Understand the advertised price and make your offer
  • If your offer is accepted, 10% deposit is paid and contract signing is completed including Contract of Sale and Lease documentation
  • Settlement occurs and lease period begins


Even if you intend to live in the house in the long term, in the initial stages of your ownership of a display home it will be considered an investment property.  

Typically financial institutions will require 20% of the total purchase price as deposit in order to lend money for investment properties.   If you have equity in your current home and/or savings then living in the best house in the street is a viable option for you. 

Choice Home Loans is able to offer you expert advice on how to structure your finances and reap the greatest benefit from your purchase of a Porter Davis display home.
