3 Top Challenges When Building with a Volume Builder

View descriptionShare

Hello! This is Episode 273, and in it, I’m going to talk about a part of the industry that dominates new building in Australia, and in many other parts of the world, and that’s Volume Builders.

Known by a few names, Volume Builders are the part of the industry that offer you a start-to-finish process to deliver a new home, from visiting their displays, choosing one of their pre-designed versions off the plan, and selecting your finishes from their range of pre-selected options, to then seeing your home through its construction process.

Also known as Spec builders, Project Home Builders, Off-the-Plan builders, they can vary in how they offer their product and services. They are usually seen as the least expensive way to build a new home, and the fall-back for many who feel it’s the only option they can afford, or when a custom home feels out of reach or too uncertain a process to navigate.

However, they’re not always the least expensive way to build a new home. And there can be a lot of challenges with this method of building, especially if you’re seeking a particular kind of home and project experience. 

In this episode, I’m going to cover the top 3 challenges I see homeowners experience when building a new home with a volume builder, that impact the home they create, and the project experience they have.
