How To Find The Best Luxury Home Builders in Perth

What sets the best luxury home builders in Perth apart from the rest?

Looking for the best Luxury Home builder in Perth can feel like an overwhelming task.  With so many builders producing high quality homes with excellent finishes and unique designs, how are you supposed to choose between them? The scary reality is you can’t tell who the best is without an insider’s perspective. 

What makes me say scary? 

Because this is quite potentially the largest investment of your lifetime, yet the experience could be anything but 5 star if you choose the wrong builder. 

9 times out of 10, a luxury builder will complete a phenomenal project however your satisfaction level is going to come down to these 5 factors:

  1. The customer journey from start to finish – is it central to what they do or just an afterthought to get the job done? This will impact the personal experience you have, and your relationship and trust in the builder.
  2. Transparency and honesty – about what’s involved at each step, costs, issues to be aware of and keeping you updated on the process.
  3. How much you need to be involved – will you feel like everything is taken care of, or that you have to micromanage your builder to get what you want? Or will the whole experience be like a second full time job that drives a wedge between you and your partner?
  4. Their technology – does it help make your life easier, are you able to see the same project management system the builder uses, will it help you get hold of your builder in a timely manner? Or even better, give you all the answers at your fingertips so you don’t need to?
  5. Process and procedures – are they custom designed around your lifestyle with the sole aim of giving you a once in a lifetime enjoyable experience? Or are they just there to get the job done and make life easy for the builder?

Your decision is really going to boil down to the kind of experience you want to have, and perhaps more importantly the type of experience you don’t want to have…

How To Ensure You Get The Right Builder For The Job

The good news is you can avoid all these hassles if you ask the right questions, and know what to look for when first meeting with a luxury home builder. 

The most important thing to do initially is quiz the builder on their systems and procedures (and get it in writing, not just in a meeting or over the phone). 

Find out how they execute, who the points of contact are, what happens at each stage, and when they do selections and quotes. You want a breakdown of the entire process from start to finish, in black and white, with no room for misunderstanding.

A builder who has thought about their customer journey, mapped out step-by-step how they want you to feel at every point in the process, tested, scrapped and re-written those systems and actively gained feedback the whole way could write a thesis on their systems. 

Whereas someone who has put zero thought into it will be uncovered very quickly when they can barely throw together a couple of pages.

Following this, you really want to find out which builder is the most passionate when you’re talking to them. Who has the most inspiration and get’s the biggest kick from seeing your project come to life even better than you could have imagined.

What Sets Trendsetter Apart
