We spent the last few weeks reviewing the contract with our solicitor and also reviewing the floor plans ensuring we are ready to finalise the contract with Eden Brae.
We’re about to embark on our first house build in Sydney of an Eden Brae Cremorne 30, Lifestyle Series. If you’ve ever purchased a home before, this may not be as daunting, however you become overly engrossed in Eden Brae reviews, forums and home building sites knowing there are still risks in building – like every major expense/decision you make.
A week prior to this appointment, Charles emailed a 75-page document for review. Ignoring the contract for the moment, the document also included our actual house plans – wow, it was the first time we saw detailed, computer-generated floor plans to the mm and side-elevations views.
On the day, we raised any further questions we had, produced our Section 149 Planning Certificate from the council and then commenced placing our initials on every page of the formal contract (two versions), including our signature where required.
This was also when we had to pay the outstanding 5% deposit of the fixed price contract (5%, less the AU$750 deposit and AU$2,500 deposit already paid).
We were also briefly introduced to our Client Service Administrator (CSA); Amy Robson. She is to be our main point of contact throughout the pre-construction and construction phase of our new home.
We were then provided our Eden Brae pack which includes brochures from Eden Brae’s current suppliers and an information booklet explaining the next steps including the colour selection process.
I still need to pinch myself as it feels like a dream.
