In answer to our last blog post, Top five causes of budget blowout, here we look at our top five tips to avoid budget blowout during your build.
You may be keen to get started, but you’ll save time in the long run by spending more time on planning in the early stages and avoiding costly mistakes, once the build has started.
Choose a builder who is committed to providing comprehensive documentation that specifically outlines all aspects of your build. This will result in more accurate costings and less room for error.
Have a very clear picture of what you want and what you can realistically afford. It’s easy to get carried away, but never lose site of your budget.
Once your build has begun, don’t be tempted to delay your build by making changes, unless it’s absolutely necessary. Delays are expensive.
Making constant variations during your build is, hands down, a sure fire way to blow your budget. It’s hard not to get emotional about your new home, and it’s a challenge to think of everything before you start building, but it pays to plan carefully and stick to the plans you signed off.
