How to choose your builder


There are just so many options when deciding on your dream home – how can you know which builder will provide the right product for your family? Here are some tips for how to choose the perfect builder for you.  

Visit the Blakes Crossing display village  

Take your time to see what’s on offer, compare designs and prices and make a short list of the builders you like. Bring a notebook with you or make notes on your smart phone so you can remember and compare later. The Blakes Crossing display village is open Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 5pm.  

Look at the construction of the houses at the Blakes Crossing display village  

Look closely at the quality of the cabinetry, paint and trimmings. This will give you a good indication of the standard of work you can expect from each builder. If you prefer to see an example of some of the homes without furnishings, you can request the builder to set up a viewing time in a relevant location for you.  

Ask your builders lots of questions  

Anything that’s on your mind – whether big or small – is worth asking. Don’t forget to keep taking notes as they give their answers so you remember all the details. 

Ask your builder for references of other happy clients from within the Blakes Crossing community  

You may like to just drive past to see the finished product or (if given permission) even contact these referees to find out more about their experience. Ask the referees if they were happy with their build and, if there were any issues, how were these resolved.
