Are you feeling confused about building a new home and not sure where to start?
You might be thinking maybe it’s better to buy an existing home and renovate it just to get into the property market?
There’s no ONE place that has all the answers you’re looking for. It’s so overwhelming!
Jess Osborne the creator of this series, knows exactly how you feel because that was her 10 years ago.
Actually building her own sustainable investment properties was way more challenging than she’d imagined.
That’s why she created this guide; to deliver to you a 100% jargon-free usable framework.
This series, has ALL THE ANSWERS you need to assist you make the right decisions, IN ONE PLACE.
Many topics are covered, including: making sense of sustainability jargon, finance environments and overcoming the rising cost of ownership - most of the content we go through falls into one of these three key areas:
Land isn’t just about location and size. The specific characteristics of the land and how it is assessed, can dramatically affect the cost of your build! You need to know what to look for, what questions to ask and what it means for your sustainable project before you begin. Missing the detail here can prove to become a very expensive exercise!
Contracts are not all created equal! Some types of contracts can COST YOU dearly, and others can help you make the most of your project. We’ll give you the inside scoop on the different types of contracts, inclusions clauses and what to look for. Ask the right questions to negotiate smartly, maximising cash flow and minimise your costs.
Construction can be very complicated if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing. So you want to make sure you are working with a builder you can trust. There are pitfalls and if something can go wrong it will. Make sure you are prepared and have done your due diligence. If you can implement in some cases, free sustainable principles, why wouldn't you?
