5 Factors to Ensure Your Home is Handed Over On Time


Receiving the keys to your dream home is one of the most exciting parts of the building journey. Unfortunately, there are a number of factors that can impact your project timeline, disrupting the construction process and pushing out that all-important handover date. 


Keep reading to discover five factors that will help you mitigate the risk of delays and ensure your dream home is completed on time.


1. Choose a reputable builder


A good quality builder knows the home building process like the back of their hand. Not only can they anticipate potential roadblocks, they possess the expertise to navigate unforeseen circumstances if they do arise, without jeopardising your timeline or handover date. A reliable builder will also have established relationships with dependable suppliers and subcontractors who can source materials and complete their part of the build on time.


2. Determine your budget early


Setting a realistic building budget upfront is essential for the timely handover of your home. By having a clear understanding of your finances from the start of the project, you can plan effectively, minimising the need for significant changes or variations later that may extend your timeline. This also ensures your builder can create a realistic construction schedule and allocate resources efficiently from the beginning.


 3. Prioritise constant communication


When choosing a builder, look for an experienced company who prioritises clear communication. It ensures everyone’s on the same page, allowing for quick and effective decisions. Imagine your questions answered immediately, not after a day or two of waiting. This eliminates miscommunication and keeps your project running smoothly and on time. Plus, clear communication builds trust. We explore this further in our blog post, How Transparency Builds Trust.


4. Select quality materials


It goes without saying that quality materials are a worthy investment. But it’s not just important to choose top-quality materials, it’s also crucial to make these selections as early as possible. This ensures your builder can have everything ready ahead of time. While it can be tempting to look for cheaper alternatives, lower quality materials often require adjustment when they arrive on site. Low quality or cheap materials may also arrive late. Both of these common issues can add unexpected costs and cause timeline delays.  


 5. Embrace Quality for Timely Results


At Christou Homes, we prioritise a quality-focused approach throughout your build. We believe exceptional craftsmanship shouldn’t delay your dream home. By dedicating the necessary time and attention to each project, we achieve both. Detailed planning minimises surprises, meticulous work reduces rework, and dedicated project managers ensure clear communication. This commitment to quality fosters a smooth build and timely handover, delivering your dream home beautifully, on schedule.
