1. Never choose a builder simply because they have the lowest price.
You might still end up choosing the 'cheapest' builder, but always ask the builder about their standard inclusions included, upgrade costs, site costs and any extra fees.
2. Develop a clear idea of what you want included and give the same list to each builder.
Items that may not be included in the base price:
Site costs, Driveway, Landscaping, Fencing, Facade upgrades, Recycled Water, BAL modifications, Flooring, Air-conditioning & heating, 3 coat paint system, Overhead cupboards, Obscure glass in bathrooms.
3. It's important to check if all site costs have been included when comparing quotes.
This may include:
Site infrastructure costs - like soil tests, temporary fencing, OH&S fees, council fees and insurances.
Site works- to prepare your site for the build, such as levelling out the site, removing rock, retaining walls, water & sewage connection.
