What to expect from our new home consultants

If you’re embarking on building a new home for the first time it can feel daunting, however if you’ve got the right team behind you the building process can be truly rewarding.

At Geelong Homes we want to take the stress out of the building process to create a truly enjoyable and life-changing experience. And we believe we do that—with many of our clients returning again and again to build more homes with Geelong Homes.

What we hear from Geelong Homes clients is that we offer a personalised service with open communication. This is achieved by having two contacts throughout the entire building process—a new home consultant and, once construction begins, a site manager—something some volume builders don’t offer.

What is a new home consultant and what do they do?

A new home consultant with the support of our sales associates plays a key role in your building journey. Our sales team are friendly, knowledgeable and honest with our clients.

They will be your point of contact right up until construction starts. This can be an all consuming experience for clients, and at Geelong Homes your new home consultant will be by your side the whole way through.

The first time you’ll meet with a new home consultant will be when you visit one of our displays.

Together with a sales associate, they are on hand to answer any questions you may have, whether it’s about process, price or land. This is completely obligation free so, if you decide not to continue building your home with us that is completely fine!

Even in these early days, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask a new home consultant any questions. This is a great opportunity to do some research and to learn more about building a new home, while also developing confidence in our knowledgeable and experienced team.

And if you decide to build with Geelong Homes, from now on the building process is pretty simple.

Step 1. Book an appointment with a new home consultant
When you are ready to get more information and pricing, your new home consultant will make an appointment to meet up with you at one of our display homes.

Ahead of the meeting, they would have already learnt a little about you and should have an idea of what you are after and what homes they can discuss with you in more detail during this meeting. This appointment is your chance to talk through your “wish list” and your new home consultant will offer advice and make suggestions to help align your dream with your budget. After this meeting they will have enough information to present you with a proposal of costs to build your new home. This proposal will include an estimate of your site costs. If you decide to accept this proposal you’re ready to move on to the next step!

Step 2: Put down your deposit

If you are happy with this proposal, you will meet with your new home consultant and pay your deposit to secure your home. We only require a deposit of $2000 to secure the current pricing of your home and any relevant promotional offers. Your new home consultant will be on hand to answer any questions.

Step 3: Look over your preliminary plans

Ahead of signing your contract, your new home consultant will send you through a set of preliminary plans to give you plenty of time to look over it and make sure you are completely happy. This gives you a chance to make any changes or ask any questions before your contracts are prepared.

Step 4: Sign your contract

Before you sign your contract, you’ll receive an electronic copy of your contract to look over before you meet with your new home consultant who will go through all the details. This gives you the opportunity to have a good read over the contract and note down any questions you have ahead of your meeting. When you meet with your new home consultant to sign your contract make sure you have your list of questions to ask.

Your new home consultant is experienced in this area and will talk you through the MBA contract details and explain all the documents, including costs and finalised house plans. At this meeting, the contracts are signed and a copy is given to you to keep.

Once construction begins, your main point of contact will be your site manager. However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to contact your new home consultant. Your new home consultant will still be available to answer questions or provide advice all the way to handover! It’s all part of the commitment we make to our clients to have an outstanding experience building with us.
