Building your own dream home is about as exciting as it gets. But how do you choose the right builder? And who can you trust with the biggest financial investment of your life? It can be overwhelming and stressful. Worse still, friends and family will probably offer conflicting advice!
So consider these key issues to ensure you have peace of mind and confidence in your decision:
Reputation: Have you heard of the builder before? Can you visit their display homes to see their quality? What sort of guarantees do they offer? How do online reviews rate them?
Experience: How long have they been around? Do they have experience in the kind of home you want, for example double storey or narrow lot designs? Do they have industry awards?
Knowledge: What kind information do they offer you? Is it thorough and practical? Can they advise on designs to fit block sizes? Will they ensure plans are compliant with all regulations?
Customisation: Is it simple to adapt or customise their plans? Will you have a wide choice of fixtures and fittings? Do they offer a good selection of elevations to make your home unique? Are they compliant with design guidelines?
Affordability: Can you easily weigh up their quality and service against their price? Can they demonstrate clearly their value for money? What’s the dollar value and the quality level of their inclusions?
Ask also about their build timelines to get an idea of how long you’ll wait. And find out if they offer you a dedicated consultant for personal contact and step by step guidance throughout the process.
