What is a building broker and why should you use one?

When it comes to building a home in one of Peth’s suburbs, there are so many decisions to make and checklists to complete. From choosing the perfect plot of land and selecting floor plans to obtaining the necessary permits and finding contractors, there’s a lot to consider and even more to manage. That’s where a Perth building broker can be a real asset. 

What does a building broker do? 

A building broker specialises in real estate transactions and provides services such as property evaluations, contract negotiations, and purchasing advice. Their primary role is to serve as intermediaries between the builder and homeowner. 

By analysing the real estate market, a building broker can accurately price properties and develop marketing strategies to get their clients the best possible outcome. 

Benefits of using a building broker to build your new home in Perth

A building broker is your gateway to a wide range of knowledge and resources which can make the process of building your new home much less stressful. They will know the ins and outs of the local market and be able to offer expert advice on everything from locating available land to vetting potential builders. 

Plus, a building broker can help you stay within your budget by providing estimates and negotiating prices. 

When you use a building broker, you also get the benefit of having a trusted advisor to guide you through the various stages of construction. From permitting and inspections to material selection, a building broker can answer your questions or advise you on recommended changes. Additionally, if any issues arise in the building process, a broker acts as an advocate on behalf of the homeowner. 

How to choose the best building broker for your needs

When selecting the best building broker for your new home, it’s important to consider both their qualifications and experience. Is the building broker licensed and insured and up-to-date on all applicable regulations? Look for a broker who has strong relationships with reliable builders and contractors as this can help to ensure that the project stays on schedule and within your budget. 

Take time to look into references and the broker’s track record. But most importantly, make sure to find a broker that you feel comfortable with and who understands your vision and goals.

I built my first home all on my own thanks to Sev and Marlise. I don’t even know where to start as words cannot describe how grateful I am that I found these two. To build my own home was only a dream that Sev and Marlise helped make into a reality. The unconditional support and dedication towards whatever I needed throughout the whole process made me feel so safe and looked after. Even though I built my dream home on my own it never felt that way, it didn’t matter the time or day, these guys went out and beyond for me with every detail and step of the process. They are people of their word that you can genuinely trust in this dog eat dog world. They are upfront and honest, it was never about the money but how you felt leaving their office. I had many friends and family tell me about the awful experiences they had building with other companies, so naturally I was a little frighten and on guard but Sev me Marlise squashed this with one meeting. But the biggest thing I can say about Sev and Marlise is that my experience was incredibly fulfilling and wholesome and I am so grateful for them and their expertise and professionalism. If I ever decide to build again I know exactly where to go! Thank you guys so much for all the love and support which has continued even after the build. Much love to you all!! 😊

Sev and Marlise were so incredible throughout our time with them. We’re so happy that we got to work along side an epic team. My partner and I had a vision, Sec and Marlise happily put up with our pickiness and changes (including after hour messaging), and did everything they could do bring that to life. They are so warm and welcoming too making this whole crazy big process more enjoyable. I couldn’t recommend these two enough!

Mike King has helped my little family get into our own home by guiding us through everything that is to know for building a house. I did not know anything about building, I was shown and given 100% support for the process of owning my own home and I am still being supported during the build. I was given an amazing package deal much cheaper then I predicted with heaps of extras, in the location I wanted. Mike King has made it easy to understand the process and I would highly recommend him.
