I'm looking at building a house in South East Queensland (Brisbane) . If I go through the regular builders such as Metricon, Clarendon, Plantation etc …
What is the best way for me go about with my negotiation to ensure I've got the best price.
Do people generally begin the negotiation of the price at the start or do they wait till it is fully priced up (after the tiling appointments, carpet appointments, bathroom fitting appointments etc…)?
My next question - What sort of Margin is available ?
With a car for example; In the past I have bought a brand new $51000 Audi for $39000 driveaway. With a Corolla you'll get a $26000 corolla for $23500 with a bit of negotiating.. I completely understand different cars have different room for negotiation. Again, looking for general advice - is approximately 10% discount on final price pretty standard?
Thanks in advance for your time.
