How a renovation or house extension building advice can help you understand your projects complexity & costs.
Whether you’re looking to renovate or extend right now or later down the track, it’s definitely beneficial to find out what the project may hold, how your ideas can be integrated and the potential building costs could be before you start. We can offer valuable building advice.
A renovating or building an extension advisor will estimate your projects value and give you an idea of what could be involved.
Let’s find out more about how appraisals work.
HOW MUCH WILL MY RENOVATION COST?
This is probably the all time #1 question we get everyday.
Put simply, we wont know until we get more details of what you want to do. Its more than likely that you wont want to invest in Architectural plans without knowing what your project will cost, your bank wont lend money until you can get a firm quote, and builders cant give you a fixed price quote until the plans have been consented by council. So what do you do?
You need to get a builder onsite so you have an idea of what cost may be involved before you get started.
HOW DOES A RENOVATION/EXTENSION ADVICE WORK?
Its an obligation-free discussion between an experienced Builder and yourself that aims to estimate what your project concept costs could be. The Auckland Builders & Renovations Advisor has a wide range of experience in building, renovating and extending and can give you great advice on what may or may not be allowed, how to build things better, what is possible- or what may not, or guide you through what council issues may arise.
Their concept advice will be an informed guide to costs by discussing your ideas directly with you onsite. Our advice is an estimate of what your project could cost in the current market.
Some factors that will be taken into consideration when appraising your property are:
- Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
- Extra features (Garage conversions or separate dwellings)
- Renovations or extensions technical requirements
- What quality specification you want to build/renovate to
- Proximity to utilities and services
- Council Regulations
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BUILDING ADVICE AND A BUILDING QUOTE?
Building Quotes are only able to be provided based off Council Consented Plans. Building Quotes are used for more formal purposes such as when applying for a mortgage, applying for building finance or fixing the price of a building project with a set specification and definitive project outline.
Building advice is only an estimate of what your project could cost in the current market, before you invest in plans, finance or building consents, using our builders knowledge and a consideration of the factors listed above. Building advice is not definitive and cannot be used for legal purposes. Rather, it is designed to gauge current market building costs and give you an understanding of where you stand, what your renovation or extension may cost, and how to go about building it.
