South West locals, Janet & Merve recently shared their pre-construction process with Summit South West.
Please give us a bit of background around your build situation
We are both retired, my husband loves to work in his shed. Building on a larger block enable us to have the best of both worlds, for me a lovely new home and him a shed. The beach is 600 meters away from our block, town's main shopping area is 2km away and we have no major roads to deal with.
What were your deciding factors to engaging Summit as your home builder?
We spoke to a couple of different builders, but when we entered the Summit South Wests Busselton Showroom, the staff were very friendly. Fraser who is our home rep is wonderful, we chose our home plan made a few changes and signed up that day, nothing was too much trouble.
Please explain your journey with Summit so far (please include a timeline)
We visited Summit South West's Busselton Showroom on the 4th of March 2021, picked out our house plan, signed up that day and paid our deposit. We then went on the Summit Home Customer Portal and started choosing our prestart selections, on the 9th of March we met with our client administrator Kathleen, another great member of the team. Kathleen guided us through the prestart selections and our electrical placement. That day we visited the paint and tile shop. On the 14th of March we signed our contract documents for Summit Homes. My husband and myself moved 8 hour drive away from Busselton, so doing out prestart before leaving was so much easier and took the stress away.
On the 30th of March we had the settlement on our home, which was delayed until the 2nd of November, however Summit Homes had everything ready to go. On the 4th of November site works started, and our slab went down on the 17th November.
What were you able to do with Summit before your land had even titled to get you prepared to hit the ground running?
We did everything all our plans, prestart and paperwork. We moved away from Busselton feeling very happy and calm about using Summit South West. Fraser and Kathleen have touched base with us, we are very happy with Summit and their team.
