Using a cheap 2 story home builder in Perth doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality or service. In fact, you can actually expect the opposite. You might be wondering how can affordability be compatible to quality and service. Doesn’t the term ‘budget’ imply taking a cheaper option?
Rule # 1 – Enter the price war;
This is one of the biggest secrets to saving home buyers a lot of money on their new home. Through a custom design and tender process you can create a price war where builders are competing against each other for home buyers business. 5 years ago, buyers were disadvantaged because Perth was in a building boom and builders could pick and choose what homes they would build. You have probably heard stories of builders turning down jobs because the block of land had a slight slope, or needed some retaining walls. Others flat out refused to make changes and only sold standard homes. Oh how the times have changed!
Competition simply provides the best result for buyers in the market thinking about building. We utilise this to your advantage. Builders aren’t lowering quality and aren’t providing a discounted service, far from it. They provide the same, if not better service because they are competing again and know they have to perform to a high standard to win work. Winning work = winning YOU!
Rule # 2 – Big builders or Small Custom Builders;
Big project home builders who build a lot of homes each year are looking at creating operational excellence. By having a streamlined operation, they can consistently use lower building margins as they turn over large volumes of homes quickly. This is both positive and negative. You may have a very efficient home building experience but you’re also probably going to be treated like a number, and not receive a lot of individual customer service. ‘Fit in with the program’ as they say. This one size fits all mentality doesn’t always suit everyone.
Perths small custom home builders are the opposite. They may not be as efficient with their paperwork, but each home buyer is given specialised attention and each home is reviewed and often built by the registered builder and/or company owner themselves. It’s fair to say that you would expect a really high level of customer service and an extremely high level of quality finish under this scenario. These cheap two story builders have much lower overheads and because they do they can compete for your work against the bigger project home builders.
So which builder should you be choosing?
The good news is the choice can be really easy. Ultilising the services of building brokers will help through their inside knowledge of which builders are performing well and which builders aren’t.
