How It Works

The difference between retail and wholesale building can mean saving thousands of dollars in the cost of your build. It also has a direct impact on how much is – or isn’t – included in what you buy. 


Display centres cater to a retail market. Surrounded by the opulence of a display centre, it is easy to be tempted by expensive add-ons, finishes and options. Its also easy to overlook the things that aren’t included in the home you have bought.

Retail building quotes are not fixed – and frequently do not typically include…

  • Site preparation
  • Site costs – contour and soil tests and connection fees
  • Flooring
  • Driveways, or
  • Landscaping.

Worse still, the contract you sign might well change before the first sign of a building emerges on your land.


The thing is, many of the same big brands you see at the display centres also construct great high-quality houses with all of the essentials (like a driveway) but without the trimmings – for a fixed cost and for much less money.



And the total reduced cost can often all be financed.
