Selecting a Builder for Your New Home in Rural View

Your selection of home builder helps to determine the quality, cost and value of your new house, so needless to say it’s a pretty important decision! These are our tips for narrowing down your selection for quality home builders when building at Plantation Palms.

Choose your house and land

You may have already purchased an ideal empty lot at Plantation Palms such as Lot 54 on Amara Street, or you may be looking for a house and land package such as this Lot 40 option. Sometimes the selection can be a simple one if you find a package that suits you perfectly. We work with reputable local Mackay builders, so feel confident that if you do select a house and land package you love you’ll be on the right track already. These are some of the builders offering packages and designs at Plantation Palms:

Another way to solve the question of who to build with is to select one of our newly completed homes at Plantation Palms, where you’ll know the quality and price you can expect up front.

Important factors to consider when choosing a builder

If you are building on an empty lot, then you will have a choice of builders in Rural View. Consider these aspects when researching home designs and builders:

  • Building and construction quality
    Above all you’ll want a beautifully built home that keeps its quality for decades to come. When speaking with builders, ask for testimonials or contact details of past clients, and ask how they assure a high building standard throughout construction.
  • State and national qualifications

All builders that work with Plantation Palms are respected local businesses, but it’s always a good idea to check the builder’s qualifications, whether that’s with the Queensland licensing authorities, the Home Industry Association (HIA) or the Master Builders Association (MBA).

  • Building speciality
    Some builders are better focused on spacious family homes, while others specialise in small-sized townhouses and units. If you have a particular home style in mind, ask about the builder’s experience with these types of design.
  • Options and personalisation
    How flexible will the builder be throughout your building process? If you want to swap out tiles, window coverings or other fixtures and finishes, how many options will you have? It’s also worth asking if changes will be possible once construction has started in case you see something you’d like adjusted.

The best place to start choosing your builder, lot and home design is at the Plantation Palms display village and sales office. Visit us between 10am and 4pm on Friday, Saturday or Monday, and start exploring the options for your new home.
