Building your home will be one of the most significant investments you’ll ever make, so it’s important to get out and do as much research as you can.

The more information you have under your belt, the easier it will be when it comes to choosing your preferred builder. And of course, you will feel more comfortable in your choice knowing you considered all available options.See what they’ve built already
A good builder will be proud to show you their past projects in a portfolio or catalogue, usually located on their website. This will give you a good idea of what they’ve done in the past, and what style of homes they specialise in. Some builders are better at contemporary designs; others specialise in federation or mid-century modern styles. By shortlisting builders who specialise in your preferred style, you can ensure your builder is familiar with what you envision your dream home to be and minimises the risk of miscommunication or design issues.Can you work with your builder?

It’s important to have a good rapport and clear communication with your intended builder right from the start. Being introduced to your proposed site supervisor at the beginning of your journey is always a good sign, after all, they will be your main point of contact if you decide they are the one for you!The bottom line
“How much is this going to cost me?” is the ultimate question that builders must answer to win the job. Cost is the prime factor in making your decision. While it is understandable that build proposals are time-consuming to prepare, they provide essential information that can show you exactly how much you are up for. If your shortlisted builder gives vague guesses, it’s best to move on. Remember your references – if a builder’s quote comes in a bit over budget but satisfies your quality and timeframe requirements, they may cost you less in delays and headaches down the line.
