PRE-SITE

BUILDING PROCESS

INITIAL APPOINTMENT

In the initial meeting the new home consultant will discuss everything from the size of your home, the number of bedrooms, car accommodation requirements, front façade style, the alfresco area and so on.

Your New Home Consultant will complete a walk through, demonstrate the inclusions, complete a preliminary siting and a preliminary sales estimate.

You can discuss any structural changes, design options and upgrades (if required) including siting, facade selection, floorplan variations, options and discuss all other requirements.

Pay $1500 initial deposit to secure current base price, available promotional offer, and reserve a preferred site start allocation.

PAPERWORK APPOINTMENT

Time to meet with your New Home Consultant to finalise all necessary paperwork in order to allow for full finalisation of the Preliminary Sales Estimate.

Sales paperwork is then submitted to Sherridon Homes Head Office for approval.

Please Note: No further structural changes will be accepted after this stage, and facade must be nominated.

FIXED PRICE SALES TENDER

This is the stage where we prepare your tender to build, based on your sales estimate and selections.
Now that you have gone through and approved your Preliminary Sales Estimate we can begin to produce a fully fixed price tender. Your New Home Tender provides you with an opportunity to check that all your requests have been included before you proceed to signing a contract.

Please Note: No further structural changes will be accepted after this appointment.
A further deposit of $2,500 is due for preparation of your HIA building contract and drawings.

CONTRACT

Once you are happy with the tender we will prepare your building contract and working drawings, for you to look at and sign off.

Upon signing of contract the balance of 5% of contract value is paid.

STYLE & SELECTION

This is one of the most exciting steps, where you will get to choose the styling of your home, both inside and out.

Once your HIA building contract is signed your Sales Coordinator will arrange for your colour selection booking (Gallerie Selection Centre will contact you directly to book your colour selection).

SITE START PREPARATION

Before construction can begin, we need approximately four to six weeks to gather documentation, arrange for a soil test report of the property, preparation of engineer’s details (slab design) by a licensed Engineer, apply for permits and secure council approvals on your behalf.
