Your Pre-Start Meeting is one of the most exciting times in your build journey! It’s when you pick the colours and materials that will make your home truly yours. Meetings are held in the Selection Centre at our Malaga office with our interior designer, so you can get assistance if you want. We normally organise your 2 hour session once your finance has been approved (that way you know how much you can borrow).
We want this to be an enjoyable and stress-free experience, so we’ve written some tips on how you can prepare. But you can always reach out to us if you have any questions and we will be happy to help!
- Walk through your current house and take note of what you like and what you don’t
- Make sure your furniture fits your new home (check your fridge width!)
- Write a list of any questions you think of
- Create a Pinterest board of style inspiration
- Take note of the windows sizes and styles on your plan because you can’t change them after your Pre-Start Meeting
FAQs about Pre-Starts
Our Pre-Start consultant will organise your Pre-Start Meeting once your finance has been approved. That way, you know exactly how much you can budget for during your Pre-Start.
We will walk you through our Selection Centre, starting with the externals and then the internals. We have a list of items so we don’t forget anything, such as chrome or matte black taps. Plus, your working drawings will be ready, so you can visualise your new home! You can check out our Client Hub for more info on the process.
We ask our clients to visit Crosby Tiles and Sheehan’s Electrical before their Pre-Start at our office. This is so you can chat directly with the experts and can see the huge range of products available. You can also visit Trevors Carpets to see the products on offer, although we do have their standard range in our Selection Centre.
If you have requested any upgrades, we will get them costed for you from our Estimating department. Your variation will be sent through for your approval once the pricing is confirmed. Don’t worry, you can remove items from your variation! After that, we can easily update your house plans to show your final selections.
We will send you through your Final Pack before we start construction. This includes your Working Drawings that show all your upgrades to your house design. Also included is the addenda which lists every colour and material in your home, such as the kitchen sink to the carpets.
We’ve taken some cheeky snaps of our clients during their Pre-Start Meeting! Your sales consultant and anyone else who’s opinion you trust can attend.
Because most of our clients come from referrals, our sales consultants go that extra mile. So if you want a team that stays with throughout your build, let us know what you’re looking for in your new home.
