First up it must be said, if we were to quote on the same design, using the same construction methods & had the same inclusions, there would be very little difference in price. However, with a focus on quality outcomes for our clients, as opposed to operating on more minimal standards, we would almost never be quoting on the same thing.
Some differences to keep in mind:
1. House designs
Suncity Homes will have designs created to maximise the use of your land, and that best serve your lifestyle. The typical Project home builders generally design house plans for a price point, often coming at the cost of creative flair, and without any of your individual wishes & block specifics in mind.
2. Quality of trades
Quality tradespeople are protective of their reputation, and by virtue of their higher skill set are often in demand. It is also these trades that we rely on to further enhance our reputation as a builder of quality homes. Often tradespeople that are perhaps less experienced or skilled are attracted by the larger volume of work offered by project builders, and may be more negotiable on rates to secure their business. As a result the focus will be on completing jobs as quickly as possible to get to the next job, as opposed to taking the care in doing the job as well as it should.
3. Building supplies
By seeking quotes on the same building materials from multiple suppliers, we are often well placed to see who is the most competitive at the time. This often achieves a similar result to those who lock in relationships for better pricing, but at the same time doesn’t limit us to any one supplier. This allows our clients to choose whatever they want.
4. More time-focused than quality-focused
Short building time frames sound good for everyone. However if it comes at the expense of good quality control processes, it can just mean additional disruptions to home owners with trades going back after handover to address defects. Suncity Homes respects our trades & expects a superior finish, so not scheduling the painter whilst the cabinetmaker is doing an install, or having the tiler on site whilst the plasterer is finishing up, avoids compromises & achieves a far better result.
