CHOOSE YOUR BUILDER WISELY AND HAVE AN ENJOYABLE, STRESS-FREE BUILDING EXPERIENCE.
FOCUS ON VALUE AND NOT JUST PRICE
The cheapest price is usually not the best option and will often result in a home that doesn’t meet your expectations for both quality and value.
DEAL WITH YOUR LOCAL BUILDER
Dealing with a local builder will provide many advantages in the areas of quality control and customer service. It also ensures that they will be available well into the future, when other building companies have come and gone.
"Building is a huge investment in capital, time and emotional energy and it is absolutely worth taking the time to get things right the first time with your builder".
LOOK FOR QUALITY WORKMANSHIP
To help make your decision, ask your builder for examples of previously built client homes. The true test of quality is how a new home will look 5 or 10 years from now – are they still fresh, sharp and in good condition.
BEWARE OF LONG BUILD TIMES
Long start and build times are a warning sign of inefficiency and could end up costing you excess in rental and increased costs. Reasonable times frames are 4 – 6 weeks on site start and completion between 4 – 5 months.
