In my own experience, the process is quicker with a broker and most of them have contacts inside the bank. We previously applied for a loan directly with the bank but took them weeks and then came back with an approved lower amount. We then contacted a broker that only took less than a week with the...

Hi there, I will soon contact my home coordinator but would like to get your inputs based on your experience or if you know someone. Is there a certain limit that you are allowed to reschedule your selections appointment or it can be rescheduled as many times as long as you haven't reached the 1 yea...

We’re looking at upgrading to a window splashback in our kitchen, I’m interested to know what people have been charged for this? Our builder quoted about $2500 for it today and I nearly fell off my chair. I know it’s dependent on size but our bench really isn’t all that large (the exact length is s...

Drove past yesterday and could see some kerbs have gone in! It's looking really good! Yayy, we are really getting there. When they say title in July, does it mean settlement takes place? If we can start with the build before end of this, there is a chance we move in before Christmas in 2020. From w...

Yes to the swimming pool question. But upon reviewing your previous-you cannot generally have a different lender-if that is what you asking? Thanks, good to know. It would be the same lender.

Hi Buildingindoreen, I have to say sarking, insulation and double glazing were big items for us, and we had to do some of it anyway to get to 6 star energy rating. Think about anything that you don't want to do after handover, or can't with a double. Things like can the garage door motor be also co...
Hi Rachael, do you have separate zoning for your heating vents in the bathroom? We are thinking to do the same. Thanks

I heard back from our builder today. It’s going o be an extra $4k to have the flat tiles as opposed to the curved in order to meet our estate’s design guidelines. Still prefer this to $8k for Colorbond! Our builder is charging us $5 per sqm to upgrade to bristille classic similar to this. I think i...

How much is you builder charging for the 4 panel door, because the cost is not that much. Even based on Bunnings prices the cost difference is about $20-30 depending on door size. If you are just looking online for prices note that style door comes in hollow core and solid. Price I mention is hollo...
Thanks. Yes we are doing the same as what you did in your new house. 4 panel doors for all bedrooms, WIR and ensuite do...

Spending money on a house prior to sale in the hope of making that money back is a tricky business. That said, batten lights are quite old fashioned and LEDs can be very cheap, but the labour costs of the changeover can be expensive. I'm in the camp of making some changes to freshen up a house befo...
Just checking how did you go with your sale and how long it took before you receive an offer? I just put my property in...

Love the contrast colour of tiles in the ensuite and bathroom. Is this 300 x 600mm tiles?

Hi there, not sure if anyone here has done this in the past. We are building a 52 square home and thinking to have a separate water heating for each floor. Main reason, when someone is using the bathroom (most especially kids) they are not interrupted when we are using the kitchen downstairs that us...

We almost did ages ago after our home was built and had to put fencing up but our neighbour next door did not want to pay the share on the other side where our garage wall is. There is 200mm gap between our garage wall to the boundary. When the neighbour was preparing the concrete pour to their driv...

It looks fantastic! I drive past twice a day when I'm doing school drop off/pick up and they've been chugging along really well! The new entrance on Cranbourne-Frankston Rd is coming along nicely. I'm actually really hopeful that titles won't be delayed too much! I went there on the weekend to have...

I think it should be fine - the wetlands should help!

Hi! We've purchased a block in Stage 2 at Canopy at Amstel :-D Hoping we title sometime this year, fingers crossed! It's expected to title July this year so hopefully there's no delay. I'm looking forward to it. Stage 2 is not too far from the main frankston road, so I'm not too sure about the noise.
