We are building a prestige home with PD and we got flyscreens to all opening windows as part of the promotions. You may wnat to double check your promotions.
Fortunately for us we were able to get the pricing of most of our upgrades at before our tender so we had a number to build on. We feel PD can benefit much more if they can be more transparent with the pricing as most people might not adopt a conservative approach.
Has everyone on this blog been through this or did you manage to get all prices before the contract.
Look forward to your responses.
J & C
I am getting most of the prices along the way, and made it very clear PD are to supply as many prices as possible at tender. We are approaching this like a business transaction, so if there is any funny buggers we will pull out fairly quickly. Its open and honest or nothing. Simple.
Correct, instead they offer simplicity, and give 13k off the list price. Both offering a fairly good discount (simplicity deal for prestige is a page or so back) they are also doing all floor coverings for 2k (if you start in July, which is our provided date by PD)
Our electrical is going to be at least 5k.
Everything else we either have a forum price or a sales pd price, so we are ok.
One thing we havent done yet is leveraged any 'deals' considering the housing market is a bit quite, we are hoping to leverage some of that. When working through the sales process, we were informed all deal leveraging should occur @ tender, that said for the most part, the price is typically the same but they might 'throw in' a few things.
Time will tell..
