Our site start guarantee explained

Timing is everything when you start building your dream home. Perhaps you’re renting and need time to organise your lease. Maybe you need to sell your home before you can start building. Maybe you don’t want the experience to be a burden on your young family. Or maybe you simply need more time to save up for your deposit.

At Geelong Homes, we want to get the timing right and eliminate some of the stress that accompanies building by guaranteeing the date we’ll start building your dream home. Our guaranteed site start is just another way we make your building journey an enjoyable, life-changing experience.

What is our site start guarantee?

If you have titled land, Geelong Homes can guarantee the date of your site start – the date we can start building your new home. From the day you pay us the initial deposit, we can be on site within 12 weeks, depending on whether you have met a number of requirements.

What are the requirements?

There are a number of requirements that must be met before we can give you a guaranteed site start.

These requirements include:

  • Your land must be titled or settled
  • Your land must be ready for a soil test & survey with confirmed access to the site
  • There are no planning or siting consents
  • There are no changes to the floorplan
  • Your finance has been approved
  • And you can maintain our timeframes of client interaction within the production process. This means you must also be committed to complying with the developer’s guidelines.

When can this happen?

Once you have met with one of our new home consultants and they have determined that you have met all the requirements for a site start guarantee, they will secure your $2000 commitment and get you on your way to finalising your plans. At this point, together we can determine your site start, which then allows you to plan the rest of your life around the building of your new home – whether that’s securing a new lease for your rental property or preparing for your children to change schools.

Next, our production team will prepare the final working drawings that you can check over before we prepare your contracted plans.

In the meantime, you can meet with one of our colour consultants, who will guide you through the selection of your home’s colours, fixtures and fittings. And once your new home consultant guides you through your contract details and you have signed your contract, our tradespeople can get on site ready to build your home.

In some cases, if all goes well, we can be on site earlier than the 12-week timeframe!
