Choosing a New Home Builder

Follow these tips to help you make sure you’re selecting the right builder to avoid any nasty surprises down the track.

Tips for choosing a new home builder

  1. They are an existing and well-respected builder. There are a number of new home builders in the market, so you want to make sure that you’re selecting one that has been around for a while. This demonstrates that they have a strong business record and are known for their successful building accomplishments. Do a bit of research and find out what sort of work they’ve done in the past.

  2. They provide great value. Just because building a new home is expensive doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try and get the best value for money that you can. Have a look at what the new home builder offers and check that what they’re offering provides you with exactly what you’re after, and at a price you’re happy with. Don’t be afraid to barter a little too! Also remember that new home builders often have different packages and styles to suit almost any budget, so keep an open mind.

  3. Communication is key. Once you’ve made the decision to build a new home in Brisbane, you’ll want the experience to be as enjoyable as possible. Building a home is a long process, from signing contracts to picking up the keys, so being kept up to date with the process is important. Choose a builder that is going to keep you in the loop throughout the building process, ensuring that they are keeping to schedule and providing you with peace of mind.

  4. Best in the business. There is no better way to make sure that you’re builder is the best in the business than checking to see whether they are properly licenced. In Queensland this involves a simple search with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission. All licensed builders will have a number that they can provide you with.

  5. Display homes. Go and have a look at the display homes that your potential builder has to offer! This will give you a great idea of the sort of homes they build, and the standard to which they build them. If the display home impresses you, and they are a quality and reputable builder, chances are you’re going to get a home that will make you happy for years to come.
