Choosing a builder to build your dream home, which in many cases has been planned and dreamed by you for many years, is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
After all, it’s the biggest amount of money you will probably most likely part within your lifetime.
It is a concern for many clients finding a builder they can trust. There’s too many horror stories out there.
Trust is critical.
Firstly, there’s not only the financial aspect, but trust goes so much further.
You will be investing your time, but also the relationship with your builder, for a considerable period of time. This can be months, to 12 months and beyond..
The trust and relationship with your builder needs to be a solid one, made up of trust, respect, transparency and great communication. After all, this dream you are building, ultimately wants to be an enjoyable one with both parties enjoying the stress free process.
Firstly, do your background research. How long has the company been operating?
What do past and present clients say? Is there a reputation etc. Do your due diligence till you feel comfortable.
Also, how is the overall building process run?
Do they utilise a Project Management system where everything is transparent? Can you see everything that is going on with your build at any time? And be able to comment and ask questions?
Most of all, trust your gut! Trust you, and trust your intuition.
Can your builder answer all your questions?
What is their knowledge base?
Do you feel heard?
How much experience have they had with like projects?
Do you like them?
Do you like their values and how they see life?
Are you both on the same page wanting to achieve the same outcome?
Find your builder and choose a wonderful partnership that not only builds your dream project but with honest, clear communication, enjoy the whole process of getting there!
