Mitigating lending risk

According to Stroud Homes Auckland North builder Michael Rabey, banks have really been tightening up on lending lately and are now looking for those ‘easy borrowers’ with land already owned, or with a small mortgage and need finance to build.

Many banks are seeing builders as the weak link in terms of risk for blowing a budget, taking longer than expected and not doing what they say they will do.

“At Stroud Homes, we are good at what we do and we are good at mitigating the perceived risk with the elements above with help of our 20 week build time, 81 fully loaded inclusions and a fixed price,” says Michael.

We explain each element in more details.

20 week build time

One of the most important aspects when building your new home, is the actual build time.

While your new home is being build, Stroud Homes has great understanding that you are paying a mortgage, you are paying interest and/or you are paying rent.

The goal is to get you into your new home as quick as possible.

Therefore, Stroud Homes’ guarantees each client a 20 week building time. This also includes time for you to review the home with an independent inspector, to make sure everything is up to standard.

When you meet Michael to sign your new home contract, he will inform you if any build time adjustments are required due to your unique project. This can include site location and difficulty, or if rock excavation is required.

If the home has not reached practical completion within the time frame agreed on, then Stroud Homes will compensate the client.

81 fully loaded inclusions

A lot of lenders are scared that builders will blow out a set budget on items not accounted for in the initial quote.

Stroud Homes include over 81 fully-loaded inclusions in every build, which are all included in the quote to take the guesswork out of building.

This also means that when you visit one of Stroud Homes display homes, what you see is what you get. Nothing hidden, just real prices and value.

If you want to view our inclusions and start to imagine what your home could look like, visit the Stroud Homes Auckland North new Display Centre.

The centre features a display kitchen, the fully loaded inclusions, floor selection and a colour selection room.

“Coming here, people will be able to get a look and feel for what it can be like building a home with Stroud Homes,” says Michael.

“They will be able to flick through the large selections of home designs that are already known and loved by so many clients in Australia.”

Fixed Price and Black & White quoting 

As already mentioned, Stroud Homes is transparent with the pricing.

“We don’t make the house appear cheaper than it is,” says Michael. “When building with Stroud Homes in Auckland’s North, you can rest assured that you’ll get the home you want, for the price you agreed on.”

You might have seen the zebra mascot? It represents Stroud Homes’ commitment to transparency around pricing with their black and white quotes.

The quotes are also exceptionally easy to understand. “We’ve found that some quotes out there can be confusing and unclear about all the costs involved in getting a finished home,” explains Michael.

“We wanted to avoid this kind of quoting.” Therefore, Stroud’s contracts are fixed price.

No hidden fees, no inflated prices and no gimmicky promotions – just 100% real pricing that everyone can understand.
