You want to make sure you pick the right builder so your dream home becomes a reality. With so many building companies out there, it can be tough to choose. 

But don’t worry, WOW Homes are here to help you out! Here’s how to find the best builder for your first home in Perth.

Do your research: Check out a few building companies websites. Ask friends and family for recommendations and look for online reviews from past clients. You can check out websites such as Product Review that are independent sites, where reviews are honest and have no ability to be altered or hidden should be utilised! Narrow down your list to a few companies that look good.

Check their credentials: Only deal with a builder who is licensed and make sure your builder is a member of the Master Builders Association!

Talk about your budget: Building a home is a serious investment, so it’s important to know what you’re getting into cost-wise. Don’t be shy, talk to the builders you’re thinking about working with and tell them your budget. Ask them to break down the costs for you so you can get a clear understanding of what you’re paying for. 

Extra services: We all know how busy life can get, right? It’s tough to carve out time to do all the research that goes into building a new home. That’s where “one stop shop” builders come in – they handle all the heavy lifting and save you a ton of time and headaches.

WOW Homes has a tight-knit relationship with Snap Finance, and these guys know all the ins and outs of what first homebuyers need. With their help, getting into your dream home will be a breeze!

Meet in person: Having the right consultant to guide you through your first home build is crucial. It’s equally important to ensure that the consultant is a good fit for you. Before meeting with a potential consultant, make sure to come prepared with a list of questions and notes covering key topics such as desired home designs, budget, potential upgrades (thinking about installing air conditioning? What about stone benchtops?), and suburbs you’d like to live in. 

Finding the right builder for your first home in Perth takes some research and due diligence, but it’s worth it in the long run!
