Choosing to build a new home is a big decision. But one of the most important aspects of the whole process is ensuring you choose the right builder. There are a range of factors that go into this decision, and narrowing it down can sometimes be a challenge.
In this article, Adenbrook Homes has outlined some very important considerations to take into account when selecting the builder of your new home.
Pick someone with a standout reputation.

Ensure your budget will align with their budget.
There are specialist builders for all kinds of homes. From mid-range projects to luxury designs, the options are endless. However, before selecting a particular style, you should consider the budget of your project.
There is no point in approaching a high-end home builder if you intend to build a smaller sized home, as the margins will be smaller for them than a more delux project. Picking a builder who’s pricing aligns with your expectations is the best way to ensure your project remains on budget and can be completed without an outrageous and unexpected price tag.
Are they experts in your desired home style?
Home builders specialise in certain styles for a reason. If you are building a single-storey home, you will want to select a home builder that specialises in this. While picking a highly-regarded, luxury home builder might look attractive, they might not have the experience you are looking for, and could end up providing plans for a much more elaborate home than you were expecting. Browse their portfolio – if they’ve built a home similar to what you are looking for, chances are they can do the same for you.
Consider a well-known builder in a particular location.
Most builders specialise in building homes in a particular location, where their pricing is more competitive. You will likely want to choose a builder that has a vast sample of built homes in the area. The best-bet for getting exactly what you want, where you want, is to find a company that is also happily and well-represented in the suburb you are building in.
This will ensure they have experience with zoning and building in a particular neighbourhood. It also means they will be better connected when it comes to hiring trades close by to carry out particular jobs for your new home.
Testimonials and reviews are key.
Chat with the builder’s previous clients, or go on their website and check out testimonials and past builds. You can also utilise Google to research additional reviews online. All of this will give you a better indication of the work they have done before and how happy (or unhappy) their clients have been.
