What to Look for When Finding the Best Home Builder in Perth

What to Look for When Finding the Best Home Builder in Perth
August 11, 2017 Great Living Homes

Recently a friend of mine who is in the process of finding a builder asked me who the best home builders Perth are and after considering her question for a while I decided I couldn’t give her a clear answer because there are just too many factors to take into account, not to mention that everyone chooses a builder for different reasons. Even though I work for a small family-owned building company who have been in business for over 25 years, have very experienced staff and that we feel we are the best Perth builders, I would need to know what my friend considered to be the most important qualities of a home builder before I could begin to steer her in the right direction.


There are many good builders in Perth, but finding the best mandurah home builders for one individual really depends on what work the client wants done and what aspects of a service provider are important to that person. Then the builder that person chooses as their “best builder” won’t necessarily be seen the same way by another buyer. There are a huge number of factors that new home buyers might assess when searching for the right building company, here are the most common:

  • House prices
  • The level of customer service
  • Whether the salesperson is pushy or not
  • Designs available to choose from
  • Builders with high numbers of sales
  • Stability of the building company
  • Reputation of the builder
  • Client reviews/feedback
  • Presentation of the builders’ offices
  • Presentation of the builders’ website/brochures
  • How much advertising the builder uses
  • What building materials are used
  • Overall quality of the finished homes
  • Location of the new home
  • The ability to personalise or customise the floorplan
  • Length of time quoted for the build
