Happy House

published

Our experience with the Sales Consultant, [name removed] was very good. He took the time to provide the information we needed and was always happy to help. The building process was a little delayed but once started went very smoothly and the site supervisor was very good. The overall result was very good and works really well. The painting in some areas was a little rough but this probably is representative of new house standards now days, unfortunately. We would certainly build with Sarah's again and recommend them to anyone considering building themselves.
Sales Consultant's level of service and overall result was very good.
Painting in some areas just ok.

Hats off to [name removed] for her friendly and very helpful manner in helping us choose our ideal home for our retirement near the beach.Nothing has been too much trouble for her as she has given great lengths of time and suggestions to us all along the way.

As retirees, and only ever having the one home for 42 years, we were somewhat initially nervous at taking on such a project at this time in our lives.However, [name removed] has put our minds at ease with her obvious interest in us and bringing about our dream.

Many thanks.
We love the open space design,particularly the huge balcony of the 'Emily 4' and raked ceiling.
We've changed the configuration of the stairs for better access.

We love our new home !

Hi Andrew.
There listed price is just a guide. Increase your final price buy 25% and you'll be close to your final costing. Council energy requirements and there listed prices for a very basic low speck home.

What was the difference between quote price and actual contract price?

In the subdivision that I purchased my block of land, the Local Council would only allow Sarah Homes to built onsite,
also they wanted me to install another window, before approving the plans for my home.

Therefore, I incurred extra costs of $2,400.00 to build onsite and $450.00 for a window to be installed, due to Local Council regulations.
I received two quotes for my home to be built, one without concrete piers, and one with bored concrete foundation piers, subject to the soil report.
With my soil report showing that I had to build my home with bored concrete foundation piers.

The difference between quote price, and actual contract price was $000.00.

The only difference in costing was what we asked for to be changed, however these were even out as we received a refund from the foundation cost.

Pat, Sarah Homes were on target with the final price. There were a few post-contract variations of our own choosing that we added ourselves.

Sarah Homes quoted me a price to build a home without concrete piers, and with concrete piers (subject to the soil report).
But my block of land, had to have concrete piers installed, and Sarah Homes final price was exactly what they had quoted me.
Every owner deciding to build a new home, has to have their block cleared, and leveled, and these costs can vary. I was very fortunate that my block of land was very level, and I only had to have the vegitation (Weeds, etc.) removed prior to the concrete piers being installed, and the building work commencing.
The only extra costs depend on your LOCAL COUNCIL PLANNING APPROVALS, and REGULATIONS, as I had decided to purchase a Transportable Sarah Home, but my Local Council would only allow dwellings to be built onsite, which added $2,500.00 to my final price,
and The Local Council also wanted me to put in another window, which was a post-contract variation costing me another $350.00.
