The building process of a family dream home is filled with wonderful moments and excitement, but also a lot of pressure and constraint. The great deal of burden that we may feel during this time is usually related to the financial matter. One of the biggest issues for people who are looking to build a home, especially the first home buyers is not being realistic about their budget. 

Therefore, the first recommendation for anyone who plans to take this venture is to be honest about the available amount of money. Even more important, you need to be absolutely sure that you selected a trustworthy builder who will make a wonderful home for you without too many undesirable compromises and unexpected expenses. 

We at Platinum Pro Constructions have a long tradition of creating beautiful houses for reasonable prices, and we will be more than happy to share with you useful tips about how to build a modern home within your budget.

Keep Yourself Updated About the HomeBuilder Grants

If you already did some research, you’ve probably familiar with the fact that Tasmania is the only state with both Commonwealth and First Home Owner Grant programs. That means that you can potentially get up to $45,000 for your new home. It surely makes Tasmania one of the best places to build a house. 

It is important to keep track of the current grants and eligibility requirements, so you don’t miss the application deadline. Also, you can apply for a first home buyer concession in Tasmania if you haven’t received the First Home Owners Grant. In case you are not a first home buyer or you don’t fit in with the stamp duty concession requirements, you can avoid their excessive costs by hiring and putting your trust in Devonport’s most trusted construction company. 

Commit to Construction Pre-Planning

This vital part of the project development process is often overlooked. Knowing that the deconstruction of essential components is key for a successful building, not paying enough attention to pre-planning may negatively affect your budget. Moreover, it identifies potential design and construction issues, so they can be easily avoided before the team begins with the works on site. When you have a smooth-running project that was planned in detail, there is a greater possibility that your budget will not be exceeded. We advocate for the importance of this procedure, so construction pre-planning is a phase that we always put all of our attention to.

Choose the Home Plan Wisely

A restricted budget doesn’t need to reflect on your home interior organisation. On the contrary, minimalistic and open plan concept design became more of a trend than a budget-friendly solution. No matter if you are building a two or four-bedroom house, you will be able to create a perfect design that you like without saving on the materials. You can go with a simple, traditional single level house, or enhance the appeal of a multi-story property by experimenting with the roof lines. 

If you are not entirely sure about how your home should look like, don’t worry because you are not the only one. Therefore, we prepared original home plans that may serve you well as a starting point for your unique design. If you like what you see, we can make sure to build exactly the same house enriched with your personal touch and ideas. 

Stick to the Settled Design To Avoid Cost Blowouts

One of the main reasons for budget exceeding is changing the design along the way. Once you signed the final contract and established the fee, any modification can, and usually will alter the costs. To avoid this, you should be included in every phase of the construction process, so you can easily follow every stage of the process. 

There is a great deal of planning, surveying and administration included before the concrete is poured, and our team is familiar with every detail. We make sure that you are fully informed about what to expect at each stage too because we know that thorough planning is the core of a successful project. Moreover, we want you to have fun along the way, so you will use our special selection sheets in the final phase to pick finishes, fittings and colours you like. No matter the choice, you can be sure that each will fit the budget we set in the beginning.

Consider House and Land Packages

The popular House and Land Package are one of the most affordable solutions for home buyers. You already have the prepared designs and layouts to choose from and even add as many customised components as you wish, and still, get the budget calculations accurately and easily. The best part is that you’ll have a single point of contact through your builder, which means a transparent and determined financial plan.
