As everyone knows, buying or building a home is most likely be the biggest financial decision one will make.
With endless home designers and builders to choose from, building a home more often than not can be an overwhelming experience.
While some builders focus on single and double-storey homes, other builders may specialise in more complex builds, such as houses on slopping sites for example.
Additionally, some builders may also target specific customers – volume-orientated builders may aim for first home buyers, while luxury builders may only work on a small number of houses annually where profit margins are much higher.
When selecting a builder, the price and budget must be clear from the onset. This includes when certain monies are due.
Typically, after a deposit is paid for a new build, construction companies may have a payment schedule that includes 15% due once the slab is laid, 20% at the frame stage and other stages until practical completion is reached.
It is ideal to select a builder you can communicate with in an open, effective and efficient manner. Given the stresses when building – especially when issues arise – this is vital.
