We got a quote from one of the only builders we can find that are able to build the house we need on the block we have. The price they quoted was great, including 'fixed site costs' of $2000.
Being naive, we thought this is a great price, and we can definitely afford to go ahead. However, reading other threads, it seems that this is completely unrealistic for site costs, and that we should probably be budgeting at least another $10k.
So my question is, on a 335m2 block on flat land, what is a reasonable site cost to expect?

Before you pay the builder anything ask for a document detailing all inclusions / exclusions and terms and conditions of the 'fixed site costs'. Also ask for a copy of their contract template to consider. This should include any special clauses. Be wary of 'bait and switch' sales tactics or loading up other the costs to compensate. What is their tender fee?

Here's the flip side of the coin when the site works is done without proper documentation, inspections and certification

How much did your site cost and how much was the area? 1) wafflepod or stiffened raft slab? 2) soil class? 3) sloping or flat site? 4) suburbs in perth? Just for an idea…

I too would reassess the plans, The garage is on the North East corner on the high side of the block, no elevations but a garage underneath would be great closer to street…
