Renovate or Build New? Tips for Making the Right Choice

For many who currently live in an established area (or are looking at moving into one), the decision on whether or not to renovate your existing home in Perth or demolish and build is a difficult one to make.

We've outlined a few things for you to consider.

How to Find Your Ideal Floorplan

Are you currently on the lookout for a home? You’ve more than likely been browsing various websites for floor plans and visited a few display homes.

Honing in on your dream design is no easy task, yet it’s critical you find the floor plan that’s matched to the way you live. No one layout is for everyone – there are a host of factors at play that influence how you need the home to flow.

Guide to Building for the Time Poor

Many people who embark on a homebuilding journey in Perth are often surprised to discover the level of personal involvement required to complete the build. In the standard construction process, there are actually a number of elements you need to organise yourself, from landscaping, to site works (if you’re demolishing an existing home), floor coverings and more.

10 Questions to Ask Your Builder Before You Sign

Signing a building contract is one of the biggest commitments you’ll ever make. So before you lock yourself in, you need to make sure you’re 100% satisfied with your builder. It’s true that not all builders are equal, meaning there are many important factors you may not have considered that can make or break your homebuilding experience (and bank balance).

Your Guide to Demolition and Build

So – you’ve spent a great deal of time thinking about your current home, and have come to the realisation that you just can’t see yourself living in it anymore. Trouble is, you’ve established a great social network where you are. The children are happy at school, you’ve got fabulous neighbours. Everything you need is right where you like it, and you just feel settled.

Stability & Ability: Part of the Alcock Family of Companies

When building a new home in Perth, one of the most crucial (yet often overlooked) considerations is stability. How long has your builder been established? What’s their track record? How many houses have they built? Are they financially secure? 

The construction industry is highly competitive, and unfortunately many building companies just don’t make it. In fact, it is not uncommon for builders to declare bankruptcy halfway through a build. In this game of survival of the fittest, unlucky homebuyers can come off second best – so it pays to understand your builder’s stability upfront.

How To Compare Building Contracts

Comparing contract costs between builders is not something that should be taken lightly. While the lure of a lower initial price tag may seem appealing, it’s important to understand that this may be a tactic used to lock you in, before hitting you with unexpected costs later.

Before you sign the dotted line, take the time to consider exactly what is and isn’t included in the contract price. This is likely to vary from builder to builder – once you understand what to look out for, you’ll be better placed to evaluate the worth of your new home.

To ensure the process is 100% transparent, here are the basic things you must know about building contracts.
