We are purchasing vacant land in Qld to build a new home. It is time for an upgrade and we want to take advantage of the HomeBuilder Grant.
The land contract has been signed with the usual finance and soil test conditions. We dont think we will have any issue with the soil as a few houses are starting to come up on the street. Finance wont be an issue though the banks are telling us turnaround times are at least 21 days…
We have started the process of looking at display homes and have narrowed it down to Plantation Homes, Clarendon Homes, and Brighton Homes.
We have spoken to a few people who have built which have varying opinions on their experience. I am wary of the additional costs of variations.
Does anyone have any tips or traps with their new home build? Were there any costs that you thought were standard but were actually variations?
