What To Ask Your Builder
Building a new home can be a once in a lifetime experience. So, the first time you take on the project you may have a whole host of questions you want to ask your builder.
We spoke to Jared from Stroud Homes Wollongong to get the low down on what questions are most popular with new clients:
The team at Stroud Homes Wollongong appreciate that communication between builder and client is very important.
A call is arranged every Friday to keep clients who have homes under construction up to date on their build. Clients who are pre-construction can also expect a weekly work in progress call to talk about everything from land registration to quoting.
Building your new home is an exciting process and no doubt you are itching to take a look at how your build is progressing. “We have up to five guided tours, which is as simple as organising a time to meet with their supervisor on site to go through the build,” says Jared.
“All of our designs are pre-priced so people know what they are getting and for how much they are paying upfront.” Understanding what your final budget is at the start of the build is extremely important and Stroud Home’s guarantee helps ensure that the client remains happy every step of the way.
Jared says, “You’re definitely not limited for choice.” The great thing about Stroud Homes is that all of the inclusions are laid out and they’re the same for every home. You have a choice of over 20 plus bricks, whereas their competitors may only offer a very limited choice of bricks.
Yes you can! “We’re happy with alterations and changes, we like to accommodate our client’s needs because very client’s circumstances and lifestyles are different,” says Jared.
“What we like to do is a get a wish list of the client’s requirements, wants and needs.” Jared will take this list and look through all of the designs and find a handful of options that meet the client’s criteria.
Jared finds that the most popular items on the Wollongong wish lists are an open flow of the kitchen through the living and alfresco areas and a northly aspect. By welcoming questions, the team at Stroud Homes Wollongong can understand what is important to the client and then help deliver a home that fits their lifestyle.
