Guide to building for the time poor – turnkey option
Most people who consider building a new home are often surprised to discover the level of involvement required to complete the paperwork for the home, let alone the building and completing the home.
In a standard new home construction process, there are numerous elements that you as the Owner need to organise yourself, from landscaping, to demolition, (if you’re demolishing an existing home), floor coverings, window treatments, air conditioning, fencing, telecommunication connection, letterbox, clothesline, TV antennas painting, lighting rubbish bins and more.
Arranging for contractors to complete these tasks can be extremely time consuming from arranging appointments to waiting at the home for the trades to attend.
When you break it down, there’s a lot to consider, from calling around getting quotes from different companies, to arranging to meet them onsite, waiting for them to arrive and coordinating trades so it all unfolds seamlessly.
Finding the time and motivation to arrange these items when you move in can seem impossible. It’s no surprise that many new home builders find themselves delaying the inevitable, which can lead to spending your first days, months (and sometimes years) living in a new home without light fittings or blinds, newspaper on the windows and a back garden full of sand!
Obtaining finance for turnkey items.
Another factor that increases the problem is knowing it can be harder to obtain finance if you’re completing your home’s finishing touches yourself. In today’s financial climate, lenders like the certainty of a fully finished or turnkey residence, which means you will have to jump through more hoops if yours isn’t.
Owners wanting to finance the finishing touches, should expect to provide the bank with at least two quotes for everything in order to have your finance approved. Unfortunately, this can be a long and costly process, as you will need these quotes before you can even start construction. It would be even better to know these costs up front before you attend your Pre-start meeting,
Generally, when a quote is provided, there is a time that the quote is valid for, and given the lengthy period of time that passes between getting the quote, completion of your home and when you need the work to be done could possibly mean that supplier prices go up and the additional cost will be passed on to you, the client.
