Apples for Apples
Why DW Homes?
All building companies pay a similar price for materials. The differences in sale price come from overhead costs. While an up-front saving might initially seem to be an attraction, in the long run this may result in major additional costs to the client. With that in mind, consider the following:
a Disaster looms for companies that haven’t controlled their costs properly. Too often, smaller companies lose money and liquidate, losing the client tens of thousands of dollars.
b DW Homes offer a realistic lead time of as little as 16 weeks from slab down, compared to other builders who may offer less, but end up taking a lot longer. This results in substantial additional costs for the client, who is now locked in to the contract and is having to pay rental accommodation and interest charges on section and draw down payments.
c Our in-house architectural team ensure your home is ready to pass consents quickly and at the right price. Most builders without this internal resource face issues all along the process - delayed consents or plans requiring adjustment at a later stage - all of which creates huge additional costs for the client. These are unexpected costs to the client as they are classed as outside of works in the fine print of their contract.
d DW Homes have highly trained Site Supervisors, each with a support person in the office to ensure that all customer calls are answered in a timely manner and the customer’s experience is the best it can be.
SIGNING OF THE BUILDING CONTRACT
When you sign a contract with DW Homes Limited, it includes a 10 year personal guarantee by the Company Directors. This may not follow with other building companies who often direct clients to sign with the local builder under their brand, meaning if things go south, they are not liable to continue the work.
HOW DO PAYMENTS WORK
Our clients pay a small deposit up-front, then progress payments as and when the value for each stage is on site and built, not just delivered. This means customer risk is always at a minimum, and if valuations are required for funding you will be well ahead of your bank requirements.
