Building A New House

We are doing a knock down rebuild so do not qualify the first home buyers grant. At the moment Metricon are having their upgrade promotion as well as a free upgrade to a colourbond roof. In your opinion, after the first home buyers grant, are prices more likely do go up or down. I do not understand how supply and demand works in the building industry. Logic would say that once demand drops, prices should go down. However I am sceptical. Thanks

Hi Sassy, you would want to think that once the FHOG boost ends and it slows down for them that they would be trying to do even more to get your business. But I'm not an expert either. I remember getting a quote from a builder in November last year, and he was pressuring us to sign up by the end of the month cos he said they were going to end all their upgrades after that. Well 10 months later they are still offering the same upgrades, and I have seen them advertise at least 3-4 times that the upgrades will be ending at the end of (insert name of month here)... its just a sales tactic. If you have found something you really like that fits your block and your budget then I would say go for it now, but I wouldn't rush into anything you're not 100% sure about just because of the free upgrades.
Built with Commodore Homes, Southern River WA. Completed Oct 2009
