Choosing the right builder for your dream home in 2019 is easy with Hallmark Homes at North Harbour

How to Choose the Right Builder for You

Looking to build a new home in 2019? Many people decide to start searching for a builder at the beginning of the new year – new year, new start, so to speak! If this is something you’re considering, take a look at the checklist below. It may help you avoid some common mistakes and make your choice a bit easier!

Hallmark Homes

 

Your Checklist

1. Work out what you need
What size, type and price range are you looking for in your new home? Most builders specialise in a specific type of home, price range or style. The building materials, tradespeople and even the building process itself can differ greatly by type and price of home. So look for the right fit for you.

2. Look for an experienced builder
Experience does matter. Look for a builder with lots of experience in the type of home you want. Doing some research upfront will definitely pay off. Ask for references from past customers. And most importantly, only choose a licensed builder.

3. Define your style
While many builders have expertise in a variety of designs, it makes sense to look for a builder whose work includes at least some examples of the style of home you want. For example, don’t go for a builder who specialises in traditional homes, if you’re after a contemporary look.

4. Visit display homes
Once you’ve narrowed down a shortlist of preferred builders, you should visit their display homes. Pay careful attention to the look, feel and quality of their homes, but try not to be distracted by the furnishings, styling and other extras that aren’t included in the home build price. This can be deceiving!

5. Look for quality
It sounds obvious, but make sure you look for signs of quality construction and attention to detail when you visit the display homes. Also consider the building products they use. Are they quality brands with good reputations? What kind of people work for the builder? Did the sales consultant show genuine interest in you and your needs? Did they listen and answer your questions? This is often just as important as the build itself – communication is key.

 

At Hallmark Homes, we build trust

Hallmark build approximately 400 homes around South East Queensland every year for all kinds of customers, from young families who need room to grow, to empty nesters wanting to downsize. They are the ‘go to’ builder for people looking for a home that offers excellent quality at a great value price.

Hallmark Homes

Hallmark Homes are proud to present three fabulous new display homes at the North Harbour Display Village – the Aspire 291, the Horizon 214 and the Edge 217.
