found another good one www.westwoodsa.com.au and click on display village and there is another 5 builders i think these are in or towards the northern suburbs which i know every one lookes towards the south but these might be worth a look. cheers Graham
Neil uses www.domain.com.au - click on new developments and scroll down to land / house packages. Prices really are unbelievable.
i know that when we had tennants in our house they had just started the building process
they ended up renting for two years! but knowing what kind of tennants they were i could believe it!!
Thank you for the websites - will have a look tonight and save them to my favorites!!
probably common knowledge?
we looked at land and build packages in flagstaf area while on holiday. the prices did not include foundations, services, fencing/walls and landscaping etc

Once they "fix" this price they honour it even if they hit problems when excavation starts.
Before they start work you go to colours selection where you start selecting your finishes, this is where the cost can dramatically rise upgrading the basic package.
If you don't upgrade you don't pay any extra, saying that we upgraded loads, getting the house to look how we wanted it and ended up spending an extra $75000.
A couple of other points to note basic package in most cases will not include
Prices are pretty good especially when your in the UK converting things back to pounds and don't forget you need to find and buy land (easier said than done)
All the best
Nor retaining walls , Fences and flyscreens.
hi can anyone tell me what sort of prices we will be looking at for the foundations/footings/slab? have tried to find a price on the internet with no joy any info appreciated!
Impossible to give a price because each block will be different, reactive soil, rocky, clay,fill,single storey, double storey the list goes on, our slab 300m2 single storey on average soil ??? prepared the site myself via contractors $6500, slab $15000 not a lot of help I'm afraid,
Thanx guzzler it does help a bit! we are looking at about the same sort of size (4 bed 1 storey) better than no reply!:)
