We’ve reached the third and final installment of The Smart Prestart Process. In Part 1, we discussed the Pre-Prestart checklist with the key things you need to do in order to be prepared for your Prestart meetings. Followed by Part 2, which explored how to tackle your site and electrical plans during the first half of your Prestart Meeting.
Now the Part 3 of Smart Prestart Process focuses on the fun part – the final selections!
On the day of your Prestart Meeting, bring in anything you have at home that will help you with your decisions. From colour palettes to window frames, there are so many elements to consider. If you’re unprepared it may feel a little daunting, so start gathering paint, tile or carpet samples and bring them along with you. You could take photos of your favourite elevations or selections from interior design magazines to have as a guide. Prestart Consultant Tess says that Pinterest can be the perfect platform to gather your own ideas as well as inspiration from others.
Take full advantage of the newly renovated Smart Homes For Living show room. Come in once or even several times before your Prestart Meeting and take your time to browse over all of the selections. Choose from the standard selection of flooring, tiles or colours, or upgrade with an array of luxurious optional finishings.
Once the Prestart Meeting is finished, the final drafts are then completed with all of your selections. From here, you can expect to receive your “Final Plan Package”, which includes: updated site plans and selections to review and sign, a prestart questionnaire, the final amount spent on prestart variations and a reminder of the finance and settlement confirmation before we can begin building. Go through this package thoroughly, as it’s your last chance to make any changes before the approval process starts and building can finally begin.
We hope after reading this 3 part series on the Smart Prestart Process, you will feel more prepared and excited about building your perfect new home.
