I have purchased a Home + Land package in Colebee. Met with couple of builders, They seem to have most inclusions that we liked. So signed with them recently.
My land is already registered, So now just finalizing the plan and waiting for the Tender. So far the communication has been great with the builder. But its early days and I've heard lot of horrible experiences from friends and family. Fingers crossed. Being a first home buyer and building is very stressful I've found, not sure if I would recommend it to anyone and I still haven't started building.

So far so good. I think they offer pretty good inclusion to start with. Access to the architect, communication has been good so far. They are going a bit slow with the CDC process with me. Make sure you get everything in writing after the sales pitch and before you sign.
Which area are you building?

Hi ranti13 ,
Thank you for the reply!.
Yes, there inclusion list is what makes me consider them as the builder. I still haven't signed any formal contract with them, only put a reservation, but still waiting for the contract.
I could not find anything at all about this particular builder though. No mention about this builder in this site other than your post. I'm still trying to gather more information/feedback on them. Specifically on things like,
Given you are still new to the build process, you might not be able to answer these questions as well .
I'm too am looking for a land in Colebee.

They are pretty small family base business mostly built around Revesby/Panenia area.Their google review is pretty good. Like you said, still pretty new to the process so don't really know how it'll turn out.
I would suggest you to get details inclusion list, contract etc. everything in writing.
