Whether you are on the lookout for house and land packages in Gold Coast to build your dream home, or looking into property investment Gold Coast, choosing the right builder is a must. Working with builders can be a bit challenging if you don’t make the right choice. Capital Wealth Property put together a great list of important things to keep in mind when you seek out a buyer to build your dream home or investment property.
All houses are different
Some builders like to attract the attention of builders by providing the cheapest possible estimate. However, the cheapest option may not always be the best option. Some builders may show a previous project and quote the same price for you. In reality, each house is different and the costs may vary not only due to specifications but also due to a number of other factors.
Watch out for unbelievable deals
If a builder is hosting some sort of promotion with deals that seem almost true good to be true, chances are, it actually is. Instead of unbelievably low prices and discount deals, look for real value and reasonable pricing to ensure a better deal. Of course, even if a deal may seem like a good idea, always read the fine print and understand the conditions better.
Be careful with display homes
Some builders showcase beautiful and extravagant display homes to woo clients. In reality, most of the amazing features in the homes may not be available in the actual home. Be sure to request an itemized cost list and to verify whether the homes they build are ‘as displayed’. This way, you can avoid many hidden costs and last minute surprises.
Look for energy efficiency
If you are getting your home built, then there is no reason to skip out on including energy efficient elements. A new home should ideally meet or exceed the minimum energy efficiency ratings. If you have encountered a builder who requests that you pay extra to meet the minimum standard, it is best to look elsewhere as most builders include minimum energy standards in their construction packages.
