FIND an ideal builder to move into your dream home quicker

Choosing the right builder for your needs and budget can help turn your dream home into a reality. First, consider the three main categories of builders:

Custom builder / architect

If you are keen to design your own home and have a substantial budget (usually more than $1 million), this may be the right choice for you.

Project builder

A more affordable option as the build is to a blueprint rather than bespoke. You can usually make some changes to the design to get what you are looking for.

Budget builder

This is the most economical option for a simpler home with basic finishes.

Health benefits

Air conditioning helps reduce the risk of dehydration as a result of excessive sweating. And, when you can set the temperature to a constant cool, exercising at home becomes a lot more fun, too.

Why choose a project builder?

A project builder such as Eden Brae Homes is a great mid-range option.

The range of homes on offer have been designed to work well and comply with guidelines. This increases speed and efficiency of the build and means designs have been tried and tested over many years to meet family needs.

Another advantage is you can visit display homes. This gives you a real sense of what the finished product will look like and whether it is right for you. As a result, there is no mismatch between what you envisage and what is delivered.

Further, most project builders have a high-end designer option like Eden Brae Homes’ Prestige range. This allows you to personalise your home some more, opting for simple layout changes and selecting your finishes. Project builders often specialise in a particular category, such as single and double-storey homes, split-level homes, granny flats or duplexes. You can choose a builder with the specific expertise you are looking for.

How to choose a builder

When choosing a builder, you need to:

Decide what you want

Consider your options; visit display homes; check the quality of the finishes.

Research the builder

Find out their years of experience in the industry; do they have a reliable history of building quality homes? How satisfied were previous customers?

Get referrals

Check websites and online forums for company reviews; enquire with industry bodies such as the Housing Industry Association on a builder’s reputation and stability; industry recognition is best practice.


Know your budget to determine what you can afford; don’t forget to include additional costs not associated with the build, such as landscaping and furniture.
