So, you’ve found a section, what happens now?
Before you actually buy the section - the best advice I would give you at this point is find a builder who specialises in the type of build you have in mind for the type of section you have. For example, if you desire to build an architecturally designed home on a challenging hill site - it is best to find a Builder that is experienced in that kind of build. Choosing the right Builder for the right job, will save you a lot of worries and frustration.
Even if you are unsure of what you may like to build, this first meeting could save you a lot of money and wasted time.
An experienced builder will give you advice on the viability of the site, possible options, contact details of designers best suited to your needs and even possible build costs.
If your budget does not look like it will allow you to build on this section and you have not yet purchased it, then it will make it easier to walk away from that section and look at other options - before you get too emotionally attached and avoid any unnecessary investment.
If you would like to arrange a site visit with a builder who is an expert in residential construction on all type of section - contact us today.
We have written a Guide for you detailing how you can avoid many of the pitfalls during the earliest part of the build process. You can access this here : Salter Builders Guide
