This Builder Not Recommended
Took 8 months after signing for them to start construction. Had to get Worksafe involved before they would clean the site and make it compliant. Now, 20 months after starting, it's a year past the contracted completion date, and still a long way from finishing. Incredibly disappointing experience and I had to seek legal advice. Stuck with these guys meanwhile - I absolutely do not recommend this company.
This company will take your money promising you your dream house. After that they wont pick your phone, reply to your email, or meet you. They will come up with excuse, delay your work, and ask for more money if you want them to start/continue building. Please stay away from this company and all the people involved.
One Star Is One Too Many
3 Point Homes were a nightmare to deal with from the time of contract signing onwards. This was June 2019, when I also paid my deposit. I subsequently found out that they were not legally entitled to enter into this contract since they did not have Builders Warranty Insurance in place at the time. After a year of procrastination, obvious lies and/or incompetence and no build start, it was obvious that that they would not be starting my construction any time soon. I terminated the contract in July 2020 and have not had my deposit refunded to this point in time. I am currently awaiting a VCAT hearing to get my deposit back.
WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!
Nothing but problems right from the beginning. They left my house abandoned for a year and left it open to be vandalised. They deceitfully took my money for works they never did and refused to refund me for it. They tried requesting more money throughout the build multiple times and went well over the contracted finish date and ultimately never finished my house. Staff were extremely rude and incompetent and told many lies throughout the whole process.
PLEASE STAY AWAY
Paid deposit in 2018!!!
No work was done...
Cancelled contract in early 2020.
Won both DBDRV and VCAT applications.
Obviously this company had no intention of building our house as more and more reviews are starting to show that this behavior was repeated with other clients. Either in taking deposits and no doing any work or submitting stop work orders on builds and leaving owners with half built homes. Any people associated with this company should be actively avoided!!!
STAY AWAY FROM THIS BUILDER
Deposit paid but no work done. Found out there are several other individuals/businesses that 3 Point Homes (3PH) took deposit from and did nothing. There were always someone else's fault for 3PH not progressing with getting the Build permit or Builder's Warranty Insurance.
Cancelled the contract in accordance with the contract but 3PH will not refund me my deposit.
Took the case to DBDRV but unresolved
Took the case to VCAT. On the day of hearing, 3PH ([Name Removed] the Director) did not even bother to turn up. Note that were other VCAT cases against 3PH on the same date and he did not turn up for any.
The VCAT case was ruled in my favour - 3PH is to my deposit back. I am yet to see any response from 3PH.
Worst experience of my life, stay away from them
The build was poorly managed with no communication and assistance from everyone at the Company.
The workmanship and quality was substandard.
Every part of the construction was difficult as they were never approachable and it took months to have meetings with them as they always had an excuse or would even pull out. I even had to resubmit my selections as they informed me they couldn't find them.
My building permit was received on 5th September 2018 and was extended until 5th March 2021.
No tradesmen had been onsite since Mid-August 2019 and th...
Not sure they are a real building company
No work was carried out
Found out about the other unbuilt properties and the ones that word had stopped on (found 5, believe there is 15)
Asked for money back - failed
Went to VCAT - won
Builder appealed - I won
Still waiting for money to be paid back
Have seen some of the terrible half built houses, please stay away.
Company has a lot of default payments against their name, do a credit check!!!

3 Point Homes Directors call t...hemselves builder, But refuses to take Ownership and Responsibility. All the builder is interested in, is Progress Payments, leaving defective and unfinished work for Property Owners to pay for. Builder is blaming that property owner is responsible for the project Not the Builder.
