After 5 months of visiting display homes all over Brisbane, looking at many builders' websites, altering numerous plans to what I want and then having numerous meetings with a number of builders I've finally selected a builder.
What helped me make the decision? The plan was closest to what I was after, the salesman was very accomodating with all the changes I want to make and he was polite and patient. He also didn't waste my time.
I grew tired of sales people wanting me to sign up with them who wouldn't allow many, if any, changes, who simply didn't listen to me, who would make promises that they couldn't keep and the list goes on.
I'm enjoying the fact that I've selected my builder and house plan and now I'm just tweaking it.
