3 Reasons to Speak to A Perth Builder Through COVID-19

The topic that has invaded our newsfeeds, the media, and our daily conversations. That is right, we are talking about COVID-19. We understand how much fear comes with the uncertainty of current times. With the panic that comes with not knowing what tomorrow brings, you might be hesitant to start a dialogue about anything can feel nerve wracking.

However, quieter times can also present a great opportunity to start planning what your future, does in fact look like. Even better, it can be a fruitful time to begin the conversation with an experienced Perth builder. This is a period of time to get your affairs in order for when the market picks back up.


Here are 3 reasons to start the process today, and to look at your home building options:


Get your ducks in a row for when the market picks up

Now, more than ever, it is imperative to get your ducks in a row and to sort out your financial plan for building or renovating your home. Speaking to a builder today will encourage you to set the wheels in motion for all the council planning, pre-start and financial meetings that need to take place sooner than later.


The planning process can take up to six months

Did you know that from dialogue to planning, the entire process can take up to six months? Therefore, we implore you to not give up on your home building goals, just because the world is on stand-still. Proceeding forward with planning and admin does not put the potential client in any form of commitment or contract. We work through these processes in order to be ready to start once we have a better understanding of the economic conditions.


The following steps can be taken without the commitment of an official contract by the client:

1)    Design

2)    Plans and elevations

3)    Costing

4)    Submission to Council for Planning approval.


These four steps will take anywhere between 4 to 6 months, all necessary steps that need to occur before proceeding to any contract.


The quietness of current times allows us to think with clarity

Most of us have had to adjust our lifestyle drastically. From the hustle and bustle of usual life, we are now confined to our homes, with restricted activity external to that. Without the chaos and clutter of daily life, our mind can attend to things we keep on the bottom of the list. This includes that build or renovation that has always sat at the backburner. There is no time like the present to finally start thinking about the things we have always wanted to do.


We believe that being future-focused is the best way forward. COVID-19 will eventually be behind us, but that does not mean your home-building goals should be too! We are here to help you and guide you towards your Perth home building goals. At Bellagio Homes, we are here to ensure we come out the other side with positivity and strength! Get in touch today.
