Building a home is likely to be one of the most stressful experiences in your lifetime.
While many understand buying a home is likely to be the biggest financial investment one would make in their lifetime, many forget it can be an emotional decision too.
As a result of this, it is important to not rush the home building process.
Take the time to think about what type of home you would like, and use this to help decide what home builder to go with.
Most have a significant online portfolio featuring past projects and in-house designs, making it easier to do your research before contacting a builder directly.
Some builders specialise in standard one or two storey homes, others may focus on sloping or other difficult spots. For property investors, some home builders specialise in small developments.
It is important to make sure your builder is licenced. All individuals and businesses who carry out or organise building work must be licenced as building contractors – even if they are subcontractors.
To help take the guesswork out of deciding which home builder, see our list of 25 home builders from Adelaide.
