Things to Consider When Building a New Home
When it comes down to it, price is incredibly important when building a new home.
However, the team at Stroud Homes Melbourne North think there are other important factors you should consider when looking to build your new home such as location, inclusions and choosing the right builder.
Nicole Parker talks to us about other factors you may not have thought of yet.
Where you want to build can affect your build costs. How? The size of the land, slope and soil grade determine to requirement for your home and can be quite expensive.
Look before you leap and make sure you complete your buyer’s diligence and be aware of the potential upgrades, essential utilities and the cost to get them to your new home site
2. Type of Home.
Think carefully about the number and types of rooms you’ll need, and what you could use extra rooms for in the future. An extra bedroom could be useful as a study.
Also make sure that the features you choose to build into your house will suit your lifestyle and add value to your home.
3. The costs and your budget.
Remember, it’s not just the home itself that you’ll need to factor into your budget: Council fees to pay and rent for somewhere to live while you build.
As your builder we can give you an idea of what it will cost to finish your home. However, always sure you allow some money in your budget for unexpected costs discovered in the initial site preparation e.g. Rock Cost.
You should also budget for things like landscaping, appliances not included in your contract, window fittings and furniture.
