You’ve Found the Block – Now How Do You Choose the Right Builder?

Finally, the block that you’ve always dreamed of is yours. Take a breath and get ready to take the next step – choosing a builder. It’s a big choice after all, as this is the house you and your family will be living in for years to come. Lucky for you, the team at Marigold is here to help guide you through the process of how to make the best choice for your brand new home.

It’s all about the right fit.

Once you have a really clear picture of the type of house you want, the next step will be to collate a list of prospective builders.

Many builders have distinct design styles, construction styles, and even communication styles. It’s important to make sure that you are on the same page from the start and that communication is transparent and easy.

Some builders will offer incentives, discounted costs, and inclusions that come as standard with their packages. By teaming up with some of Victoria’s most reputable builders, Marigold offers a complete turn-key home solution featuring packages that include fencing, front landscaping, driveway, path, flooring and much more.

Research is key.

The best form of research is to check out a builder’s home construction quality in person. Whether it be their finishes, materials, floorplans or building style – you’ll be sure to be inspired. Time to plan an exciting day trip to the builder’s display homes!

When you have whittled your list down to a few truly suitable builders, there are a few questions to consider – 10 questions to ask a prospective builder are a great start.

Time to make it happen.

We suggest talking with several builders, qualifying a couple that you feel comfortable with and then beginning the quoting process. Ask the selected builders for detailed quotes on your build but keep in mind – cheaper is not always better.

Look carefully into the breakdown of costs – the more detail here, the better. Go through the quotes carefully and make sure they include everything you want – such as specific features and fittings, removal of rubbish and site waste.

It is imperative that you do your homework when selecting the right builder for your dream home. The key to build longevity and avoiding a whole host of expensive repairs down the line is a solid foundation, quality products, clear communication and understanding what is and what is not included in your build.

Marigold supports you in your quest to build your dream home by taking out the guesswork in supplying you with reputable builders and quality packages.
