FAQ's Frequently Asked Questions 

     Q: How your Consultancy Services can help me to buy a property for the correct price?

A: Thanks to our over 35 years of experience, Our Consultancy Services have been very successful in helping the customer to choose the right property for them for the correct price. The Consultancy Services varies, however The most popular is when we come with you to the "Open House" or "Private appointment" (previously organized), and we will walk making notes about the property, renovation and extension ideas, and desires you may have. We will also include important repairs before settlement that may save you some extra dollars on the purchase price. 

We guarantee you a formal report with photos before the end of the day stating the ideas discussed with an Estimated price. That will give you the correct information to Negotiate the final purchase price.

Q: Should I buy land before contacting a builder, or talk to a builder before I buy land?  
A: As a custom home builder, we generally work with clients who already own land and we build on their lot. However, it can be advantageous to contact a builder while you’re still researching land, as the Builder can help you get a better idea of the kind of land you’ll want to build on.

Please keep in mind, the land you end up with will dictate much about your home’s design. So while it may be obvious that we can’t start building a home until you have a place to build it, what might not be so obvious — but is just as important to know — that we really can’t design a home either until we know exactly what kind of building conditions we’ll have.

If you’re interested, we can work with you and provide all documentation needed for  your construction loan, so feel free to contact us if that’s what you’d like to do. Also, if you don’t know a good real estate agent on Sunshine Coast yet, let us know and we’ll connect you with one of our preferred real estate agents who can help you find land.

Q: What is the approx price for a New Build / Renovation or Extension?

A: The approx price sometimes is hard to calculate as each project is different and will depend on the following: location / suburb (if travel is required), job site condition (as in the land contours / shape), land positioning (where will be beach front or inner suburb) and council / government approvals. After reviewing the previous conditions, you should be able to make a decision regarding the type of building you want in accordance with your budget. 

We recommened you to contact a builder before start the planning. The builder will help you with a realistic view regarding if your project is possible or not. 

If you’re interested, we can work with you and provide all documentation needed for your construction loan, so feel free to contact us if that’s what you’d like to do.

A:  We generally provide a full quote for the works, and an horuly rate set up depending the scope of works and the customer's budget. Sometimes the quotation will depend on the job site location, conditions, and the layout of the design.
