When you’re planning and finalising a big purchase (say, a home), you can’t risk being impulsive. You have to be meticulous in preparing for the commitment, surveying your choices and studying the details of your transaction.
Here are some things worth discussing with your chosen home builders before you push through with the construction of your new home:
The Nitty Gritty
The most basic considerations for a new home are its location, features and price. Since you’re already set on living in Perth, you have to determine the neighbourhood and exactly where in that neighbourhood you want to be situated (perhaps somewhere close to the main roads or to the local school).
You should also define the ideal size of your home, the number of rooms it should have (as well as their configurations) and its amenities like a 2-car garage or a big courtyard. Most importantly, you need to set your budget, which will most likely be based on your savings and income or your mortgage rate. Checking out display homes is a great way to have more of an idea on these matters.
You should also find out what modifications or additions you can make to your builder’s layout. In some cases, you can choose the styles of some parts of the home or you can request for custom makes. Check your warranties and be proactive in knowing what you can do.
