Looking to build your dream home with Clarendon Homes in South East Queensland? They build in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and everywhere in between. When it comes to determining a price, it’s impossible to give an exact answer about a hypothetical case. In all honesty, it’s best to take the prices you see on a builder’s website with a grain of salt (this is the case with every builder, not just Clarendon) as there are many things that can add additional cost to your build.
A variety of elements like the condition of the property, location, permits, registration fees, construction costs, site preparation and inclusions will bump up the price. This isn’t even taking into account that pricing is constantly changing.
With that in mind, the point of this article is to get a general idea of what to expect from Clarendon’s prices and inclusions rather than considering it written in stone. How do you know if it’s a fair deal or if you’re being had? Get in touch with Buildi and we can run through all the details and provide our expert opinion. Even better, you tell us what you’re after and we’ll help you find the perfect builder for you.
