As you wander through display homes, looking at various layouts and designs, you’ll find yourself drawn to different fittings, finishes and other features. But you need to be aware that everything you see might not be included in the home’s standard price. Some of the features might be optional upgrades, which will cost you more. They have been used by the builder to show what variations are available for different tastes and budgets. Optional upgrades could range from the simple, such as a better carpet and different bench top thickness, to the more involved, such as a different facade, energy-saving features and an outdoor room. Its important to consider the following when deciding on a builder.
When looking for a builder and receiving quotes you will notice their is quite a difference in the advertised price. Take the time to sit down and go over every detail and whats included. You will soon find there is quite a difference in not only what is included but the quality of finishes and inclusions. This is the first step to narrowing down your builder.
Narrow It Down
Know whats included before you sign the contract, If you want any upgrades make sure you get everything priced and listed in a fixed price contract so you aren’t up for any variations. Variations can be quite costly and come directly out of your pocket and aren’t included in your mortgage. It is very easy to not know how much you are ultimately spending if the builder keeps adding variations throughout the build.
Sum Of Things
Your budget is ultimately what will determine whether you go for the upgrade or not. However, don’t think you have to miss out on everything you want just because of limited funds. The trick is to choose wisely.
