CHOOSING A BUILDER – What to Look For
Slab upgrades & site costs
If you’ve built before, you’ll know that site costs can often be expensive. It shouldn’t necessarily be that way. Beware companies that quote a cheap house, then quote you site costs that seem REALLY high – they may be trying to add some cream into the job to make up for that “cheap” base price, or to cover the cost of a promotion. At Sandhurst Homes, we do not add 30-50% onto our site costs – in fact, we add nothing! You only get charged what it costs us.
When will the house actually start?
A lot of builders can’t start your home until MONTHS after you sign a contract, despite telling you otherwise BEFORE you signed the contract. They figure once you’re signed, it’s easier to string you along and make you wait. By building with Sandhurst Homes, you get to site much quicker for one simple reason – we don’t have long administration processes which will hold up the start date, nor do we get bogged down with huge backlogs of homes. Typically, its only 5-6 weeks from deposit to contract signing, and 2 weeks to get the building permit – and then we start straight away!
What does a promotion really include, and are they really worth as much as they say?
Some promotions seem too good to be true (eg. $50,000 worth of stuff for $5,000 – not possible!). Look closely – usually the retail value of those goods has been well and truly trumped up (we recently saw a large builder state that tiling 2 shower bases was worth $3300 but they were offering it for free!!! Actual cost, probably about $700 for both shower bases). At Sandhurst Homes, if we offer promotions or discounts, it comes straight out of our own pocket, which is why we only run promotions sporadically and for short periods of time! Instead, we give you the best price first time, every time.
There are so many more questions that should be asked!
