Setting up your project for success with a Low Cost Feasibility Study (LCFS)
A large builder is able to negotiate volume discounts, this is true, but they also have huge overhead.These overheads are more than enough to offset any volume discount gains.
Trade Builders on the other hand, are hands on, and unless they are burdened with large customer servicing costs, have small overheads. We focus on providing these builders with admin services that allow them to provide efficient and responsive service to prospective customers, without piling on additional overhead.
If we then help these builders aggregate their supply orders, supplement services already offered in the marketplace, they can then combine low overhead with low-costs.
These services allow us to properly estimate building costs, and incorporate build-cost into the home design process.
We now have a trifecta
- Cost Planned custom home design
- Experienced, reputable and competent hands-on builders
- Low costs.
Read how you can take advantage of easy to use systems and data to get the get the perfect home design, the best and most experienced builders at incredibly low prices.
