Builder Bill Shock: Have you been affected by the recent price hike from some WA home builders?

Posted 10 March 2020

Perth consumers are being urged to be aware of un-announced price increases from their builder after many buyers were stung with a price increase on their new home after signing on the dotted line.

Buyers are finding out that despite having commitments in place, some builders are using recent factors such as an increase in labour costs, issues with supply chain as a result of the COVID-19 virus, and pressure on margins as reasons to unexpectedly raise the price of a client’s new home build. 

At Summit Homes, we’ve been building trust for over 40 years. In that time we’ve built more than 40,000 homes, renovated over 3,000 homes and completed over 3,700 developments. As part of our “Built Around People” commitment, we source only the best of local trades, products, suppliers and administration teams to help build our clients’ homes.

We believe in old school commitments. And while we will provide you with detailed paper-work and a fixed price contract, you can also be assured a handshake is our bond.

This ensures your home building process is seamless with no nasty surprises along the way.

Summit is a privately owned, family operated builder who is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, accuracy and quality in all aspects of the home building process.

Perth’s housing market is showing further signs of recovery after dwelling values increased by 0.3% in February, marking it the fourth consecutive months where house values avoided a fall.

If the momentum continues and you’re in the market to build, now is the time to be shopping around for builders.

Look for a builder who is prepared for a market uplift with good resources, trades and suppliers behind them so your new home runs smoothly, on time and on budget.
