There is nothing like watching your luxury dream home come to life. It’s an exciting experience and one that you should enjoy. However, it can become a nightmare very quickly if you have the wrong team working on-site. Having worked with scores of clients, here are our top five luxury home building tips to ensure a seamless and hassle-free building experience.

1. Choose your location very carefully

The location of your new home is important for several reasons. The first and probably most important reason is that the location of your new home will determine how much it will cost to build. If you were wondering how much does it cost to build a luxury house, just know that the more affluent the neighbourhood, the more you’re going to have to pay. Other factors that will determine how expensive your new home will be, include your design, builder, and features.

2. Select an experienced architect and custom home builder

The cheapest architect and home builder shouldn’t automatically be your building contractors of choice. Your luxury home is an investment. You don’t want to have to worry about structural problems in a few years’ time, do you? Opt for a reputable home builder, who’s got good references to back up their claims.

3. Review your contract before signing it!

We don’t know how many people we know who signed their contract without reading it! Just because you’ve spoken about something with your contractor, doesn’t mean it’s been included in the final draft of the contract. Therefore, it is imperative that you read every single line on your contract before you put pen-to-paper.

If you’re not sure of the legal lingo, then go over it with your lawyer. Make sure you understand your liabilities and your contractor’s responsibilities. Don’t forget to include a clause in the contract that enables you to bring in a private building inspection expert upon completion of the building, to make sure that the contractor has fulfilled their end of the contract.


4. Hire a project manager if you’re too busy

If you can’t be on-site everyday watching over what is happening, or you don’t want to be involved with the day-to-day hassles associated with building a luxury home, you should probably hire a project manager.

This is especially true if you’re a busy person who doesn’t have the time to monitor every last detail. Your project manager will be able to make critical decisions and answer when you need news on the project.

5. Have the house inspected before moving in

Before handing over the keys, the builder will ask you to inspect the house thoroughly and let them know if it lacks anything or if anything violates any of the terms in the contract. If you’re not sure what to look for, then hire a private building inspection expert.
