How much does a home building cost?

Like the home design process, the cost will also be quite variable. It is a function of the type of home, how many storeys, the total surface area, your region, and many, many, many other factors. However, there is some official data to rely on. The average cost of building a home is $1393 per square metre, according to the Australia Bureau of Statistics (‘ABS’). This figure is non-inclusive of design or permits.

And averages can be misleading. A granny flat extension is going to cost far less than the cost of a custom built home. And the cost of building a home is 100% separate from the cost of land, which has become far more expensive all over Australia. Hiring an architect can also drastically increase the price of the home building process.

How long does a new home build take?

The build itself can take between 6-12 months, once everything runs smoothly. This refers to the construction time. Before you start on a new home, you need to get a substantial amount of paperwork in order including financing. You then have to decide on what style and design of house you would like, and this could take a while (though you can work with Compass Homes to speed this process up). The preconstruction phase can also take around 6 months, but this depends on how quickly you get everything together. As rapid home builders in Mandurah, we can speed up the completion process.

Why should I choose Compass Homes?

You will be working directly with a registered builder instead of dealing with a third party. You will also be working with a builder that you can trust and who will lead you through the entire process so you aren’t left in the dark about any detail. Moreover, we deliver affordable house design that does not compromise on the quality of service.

What is the home building process?

The home building process is not 100% standardised and can vary. For instance, you might buy land then get designs, or obtain a design and then obtain a plot of land to match. Local regulations may also change. In general, however, the home building process may proceed along with the following steps:
What is similar is that all new home builds will require land, a design, a builder, local permissions, foundations, framing, fitting, and finishing touches. It’s just the order that tends to vary. Financing is another step that you’ll want to consider, even if it is not officially part of the actual construction process. Nothing will start without proof of financial support.

How much freedom do I have to customize the home?

You can have as much freedom as you want, within reason. We work with you to deliver the house that you are looking for. At the same time, there are some things that are simply impractical to do or are structurally unsound. It’s usually best to choose a set design and then make some alterations or start with a firm design in mind. Frequent changes will result in a delayed process.

What difficulties do new home builders face in Mandurah?

Consider that practically every single contractor has to do their work in a particular order – the concrete workers, roofers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, tilers, plasterers, etc. There are a lot of moving parts. We are lucky to work with the best and most reliable third-party contractors, and every one of them is registered, licensed, and insured.

My site is on a slope, can you still build on it?

Yes, we can build on any reasonable terrain. We will simply have to make adjustments for the slope. There are some intricacies of building on sloped terrain, but it is certainly worth it, especially if you deliberately choose that spot for its stunning view. We have experience specifically with building on slopes. Due to the added challenges, this experience is instrumental for getting the most out of your slope and ensuring you don’t slide into the sea!

Should I get a home inspection?

It is recommended. Your new home should obviously be up to the specification, and in 99% of cases, it will be in tip-top shape. But a home inspection ensures that everything in the home is in working condition, from the lighting to the plumbing. If you find anything, we want to hear about it.
