Building A New House
May 13, 2013 2:41 pm
Hi, we're looking for a builder to build our dream home (1st time building our home although we're not 1st home buyer) in an established area in inner west (Melbourne).
What we're looking for a reputable builder who has experienced in the established area (land measurement is 680sqm) and can cater for our design.
Do you have any recommendation? If so please post your reasons.

I Cant recommend our builder even though we are happy with the end result...mostly...it was a struggle. My advice is to steer clear of a volume builder, anyone with billboards.
When it comes to choosing a good local builder, once you get a written quote, use their business name to do a vcat search. Don't go looking for their trading name as they almost always are registered under a different alias.
Bit off topic but if I had to do it again i would definitely owner build. Its a bit chicken and egg but having gone through the process i now realize how much i could of saved.

Make sure you speak to someone who has had direct experience with the builder you are looking at and do not just rely on the builder giving you a client to speak with or online reviews/"testimonials" on a builder's website. Building or renovating a property is one of the biggest decisions you could ever make so having a trusted and reputable builder is important.
