Building your own dream home is an exciting life milestone. You have your wish list, you’ve settled on a budget and now it is time to choose the perfect project home builders to help your vision come to life. When choosing a project home builder, it is important to take a number of things into consideration. This way, you will save yourself both time and money (not to mention a few headaches) along the way.
Before you commit to a project, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to ensure that once the project starts it runs as smoothly as possible:
- Does the company build homes to suit your needs?
This may seem like a simple question however sometimes the basics get overlooked when you are presented with so many options. Here at Lily homes, we offer a range of single storey, double storey and duplex homes. Of course our popular custom builds are another exciting option. Or, take a look at our home and granny flat portfolio. The options are endless!
- Are the layouts flexible? What are you family’s needs when it comes to the floorplan?
It’s no use spending time choosing your perfect home only to discover that the project home builder does not work with the layout you require. Every family is different and every family has different needs when it comes to floorplans. Kid’s rooms all on the one level? Laundry room with access to the washing line? Make sure you are ticking all the boxes before the build begins. Here at Lily homes we can offer flexibility when it comes to layout so just ask!
- What level of expert advice can you expect from your project home builders?
Lily Homes prides itself of employing a team of well trained professionals. With continual training provided to out staff, we can ensure that the ever-changing council requirements and strict building codes are always adhered to during your project. We take the stress out of the fine print so you can relax and spend your time choosing your gorgeous finishes.
- Can you see examples of previous builds?
Checking out display homes is one thing but to get a true sense of the workmanship and customer satisfaction, make use of social media. Website testimonials and photographs on Instagram will help you in selecting a company that you can be confident with.
- Are you getting the very best value for your money?
Take a look at promotions, deals and packages that may be applicable to your dream build. The savvy researcher can save a substantial amount when looking in the right places.
Once you have satisfied the above points, it is time to get personal. Yes! Nothing can replace a one on one interaction with your potential project home builder to get a feel for what they are about. Phone calls, emails or a visit to head office; just be sure to have a list of all your queries on hand. To get you started, here are a few questions you may like to ask during that first point of contact:
- Can I visit the display homes and meet with sales staff at the same time?
- What is the turnaround on new builds?
- Can I contact you with questions or changes during the project?
As you begin to formulate your list of questions, many more will come to mind. Don’t be afraid to double-check or clarify a point with the team. This is your dream home after all! Lily homes works with a team of architects to ensure that each and every home created exceeds the expectations of our clients.
