How long does it take to build a new home?

26 September 2017

Forget the days when you had to wait 18 months or more to get the keys to your new home. Build times are the shortest they’ve been for a long while, which means you could be in your new home before the end of the year.

It could even be as soon as 6 months from now!

There are a few key factors that determine how quickly homes can be built. Here at Plunkett, we put our speedy build times down to:

Our trusted trades: We have a long list of trades who we know we can count on. When it’s boom-time for the building industry, good trades are super-busy and we have to fit around their availability. Right now, we’re experiencing what we call “good availability of trades”, which means your project can keep moving ahead quickly and efficiently. Needless to say, you’ll also be getting all the quality you expect from one of WA’s most experienced homebuilders.

New systems: We never rest on our laurels, so are always looking for better ways to do things. We’ve recently streamlined some of our existing systems and implemented new ones to keep the entire building process moving quickly and smoothly.

Planning and paperwork: We eliminate hiccups at the planning stage by ticking all the boxes before we submit your application. Essentially, we try to make sure we’re ahead of the game by anticipating any queries, and being aware of all the guidelines and requirements. Thinking ahead and doing our homework increases the chances of your plans progressing smoothly.

If you’re building a new home it’s only natural that you’ll want to move in as soon as you can. But speedy build times are good news for lots of reasons.

Don’t want to waste any more money than you have to on rent? The sooner your new home is finished then the less of your hard-earned cash you have to hand over to your landlord.

Maybe you want to take advantage of today’s low interest rates or you’ve got your eye on a particular land release? Knowing your builder is geared up to act quickly means you won’t have to miss out on that perfect block or that too-good-to-miss offer.

Our display homes and off-the-plan designs are all great starting points if you’re looking for a little inspiration. And don’t forget, everything can be fine-tuned for a perfect fit. Even if you ask us to create a custom design, it won’t add much to the build time.

Just think, your building permit could come through in as little as two weeks. From that moment on, it really is all systems go.

So what happens when?

Our building consultants are a mine of information and can carry out a no-obligation site assessment for you, sketch up plans and give you an idea of cost. From there, it’s on to working drawings, contracts, and the necessary building permits and approvals ready to start on site.

If you’re ready to move, then so are we.
