Seven out of ten buyers who look to build a new home, to begin enquiry for details regarding a house and land package, have been tainted by a previous experience with a builder.
It can be very difficult to pick up the pieces and restore faith for a buyer regarding the process of purchasing and constructing a new home. The buyer’s last engagement with a builder has changed their perception forever; and not always in a good way!
If buyers are informed about the inner workings of the building process they are empowered to make good choices when building a new home.
To this end, this course will arm buyers with the basic knowledge they need for a successful new home transaction and thus a positive experience. Understanding key reference points in the construction process, and knowing what questions to ask, is crucial in order to gain control.
After completing the course, buyers will understand what can happen even before the slab is poured. This information enhances both the buyer's experience and holds the builder ethically responsible for ensuring that a transparent process is undertaken.
