We were lucky enough to have Compare the Builder work with the design of our forever dream home to suit our family perfectly.

We are a blended family with 8 children and were looking for a house to suit our family needs and within our budget, this was not easy when contacting all different companies and having prices way out of our budget for homes that were quite suited to us.

We contacted Compare the Builder to see if they could assist as and he was more then happy to take on the challenge .

We supplied our consultant Mark with all the information needed in regards to what we were looking for in our family home and left him to what he does best. He came back to us with the most amazing house design which ticked all our family needs and then some, once approved he then helped us source a builder through his network of builders to build the home that would do the best job for us within our budget and he nailed it.

We are now about to start the build on this new family home this month all thanks to Mark and his hard work.

If you are looking for someone to help you with your new home design and build all within the budget you have set, then do not hesitate to contact Compare the Builder… you will not be disappointment .

Thanks so much Mark for making our dream home a reality its something we will never forget and will be forever grateful for

Contact us at Compare the Builder if you are just starting to explore your plan options for a renovation or to build your new home.

Yes, definitely visit housing developments to see what type of house you like and to price the cost of building to their plan and the price of any extra inclusions. But be wary about signing up before exploring other options. Often housing estate salespeople use gimmicks, freebies and giveaways to lure people in to sign up. Be aware that the cost of these are all part of the overall price of building a house with the company. Remember, nothing is truly free. It is all in the perception but you will pay for it one way or another.

Comparing building quotes through Compare the Builder offers many advantages, such as:

  1. Consistency in services and inclusions, ensuring that all the quotes you receive from prospective builders are fair, consistent and that they all quote on the same scope of work. This means it is easier to compare the quotes with each other.
  2. It streamlines the decision-making process by presenting various options within a familiar framework, making it easier to assess which builder best suits your budget and needs.
  3. It may facilitate higher value quotes from the builders as you are part of group buying power, rather than a one off build. There may be potential cost savings or additional incentives provided to win your tender.

Not only this, we work with you to select the quote that offers you a high quality result that works within your budget while giving you value for money. Cheapest is not always best value for money. Some things that affect value for money in a building quote include:

  • Builders quoting on different scopes of work.
  • Additional costs that may not be included in the scope of work and arise throughout the build.
  • Quality of materials the builder intends to use.
  • The builder’s experience and reputation.
  • How quickly they will complete the project.

Building plans are crucial for building your new home or even for a renovation. They are a blueprint for the builder to get everything right and they save you time and money throughout the build.

Here are some reasons why you need building plans:

  • Useful for obtaining a building permit so you can proceed with building or renovating your home.
  • Builders use the plans to build your home or to complete the renovation so the end result matches your vision.

While having building plans is important, it is just a small piece of the puzzle.

Whether you are just starting and do not have a final plan or you have collaborated with a designer or architect to create building plans that suit your lifestyle, there is a lot of work during the pre-construction phase. This is essential to accurately tender the plan and obtain like-for-like quotes.

Everyone we work with requires an individual approach. We need to take into account different blocks of land, types of renovations, house plans and requirements. This involves detailing services, budgets, timeframes and specific inclusions. Our meticulous process empowers everyone involved to make informed decisions, exploring different options to discover the most suitable solution to achieve the required end result.



When comparing plans for rebuilding your old house, consider a few crucial aspects. Look at the services provided – ensure they cover all necessary elements. Check the contractor’s reputation and past work for quality assurance. Review the cost breakdown to align with your budget and understand payment schedules.

Understand the proposed timelines and project management details. Scrutinize the contract terms, ensuring clarity on warranties, liabilities, and any specific conditions. Assess communication methods and support offered. Finally, look for any additional value or unique offerings within the plans, such as innovative designs or eco-friendly options. This comprehensive evaluation will help you make an informed decision best suited to your rebuilding needs.

The average costing of plans for rebuilding old houses can vary significantly based on factors such as the scope of work, materials used, size of the house, and additional services included. Typically, our platform provides a range of quotes for users to compare, allowing them to see a spectrum of pricing. Costs can vary from a few thousand to tens of thousands of dollars, contingent on the complexity and scale of the project. The platform presents transparent breakdowns, enabling users to select plans that align with their budget and project requirements.

When it comes to determining the “best” plan for rebuilding your old house, it’s subjective and highly dependent on your specific needs and preferences. The best plan is one that aligns with your budget, offers comprehensive services, is backed by a reputable contractor, fits your timeline, and resonates with your vision for the rebuild. We provide multiple options for users to compare, allowing you to select the plan that best suits your individual requirements and goals for your home renovation.
