Finding an Adelaide Custom Home Builder may be exhilarating and nerve-racking if sufficient “Due Diligence” is not undertaken.

Be cautious of the BAITERS!

What exactly are BAITERS?

A “Baiter” is a builder who will quote a stupidly cheap dollar amount per square foot. The low price per square foot catches your eye. The trick then persuades you to call the Custom Builder. When you start “peeling back the onion,” you notice that the low price per square foot doesn’t include everything (site work, all permissions, etc…) and is priced with poor quality / substandard materials.

Before hiring an Adelaide Custom Home Builder, what should you “Make Certain”?

1) Confirm that any custom home builders Adelaide offered pricing is ALL-INCLUSIVE.

This covers, but is not limited to, ALL permits, ALL required site work (driveway, excavations, septic, etc…), and ALL required connections (water & sewer, well & septic, gas & electric). You will want the Custom Home Building procedure to be an entire “Turn-Key” if you are not a handyman. There will be NO shocks later when it is too late.

2) When comparing materials used by any Adelaide New Home Builder, compare “Apples to Apples.”

The usage of 2×4 against 2×6 construction, Formica versus Granite countertops, Single Hung versus Double Hung Windows, Brick versus Vinyl Siding Cabinet grades, carpet grades, appliance grades, the list goes on and on. The best thing to do is create a computer spreadsheet that compares the included specs of one prospective custom home builders Adelaide to another.

3) Go to a few Custom Homes under construction to inspect the “Build Quality” and authentic materials utilised.

If you encounter a subcontractor or vendor on-site, don’t waste their time (they’re busy), but ask them, “Do you enjoy working with this specific Custom Builder?” If there are any payment issues or if the worksite is poorly managed, you may be startled by the forthright replies you hear. Take note of the task site’s condition. Is it sloppy or cluttered? It might indicate an “I don’t care” attitude.

4) Ensure that a communication system is in place throughout construction.

EVERY WEEK, you should notify what activities are planned for your house that week. Pictures, emails, phone calls, and so on are great ways for a Custom Home Builder to remain in contact with their clients.

5) Confirm that ANY builder you are hiring has EXCELLENT customer references.

Inquire with numerous references about their overall experience with the custom home builders Adelaide. People will inform you if they are dissatisfied with their encounter.
