What is a Building Broker?

Building brokers are very similar to mortgage brokers. However, instead of sourcing mortgages they source and compare different pricing from different home builders. Building brokers are individuals, businesses or organisations that bridge the gap between licensed contractors and consumers. These professionals broker the construction of residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

Building brokers are to have no affiliation with any particular builder and are able to be unbiased while sourcing the best deals for you. The number of firms offering building brokering services in Australia is very limited. Some of these firms only handle residential or commercial quoting services in certain areas, while others handle residential, commercial and industrial.

Types Of Services Building Brokers Offer

Building brokers main service is to source, compare and present building quotes from various builders and give advice on to the client in a factual way. In Australia Building brokers can also offer a variety of extra services, including home design and independent building inspections. Depending on the firm’s experience, skills and knowledge of the construction industry, they can work with the client to draw up or modify their existing floor plans. Most firms will allow the customer to submit their own plans, which will be utilized to obtain quotes from various builders.

Ensures Competitive Pricing

Building brokers work diligently to help their customers get the most out of their money. They are able to do this with construction bidding, which allows qualified builders or contractors to submit a proposal to manage or undertake a construction process. The broker will always start this process with cost estimate from the plans they draw up or the customer’s plans. The cost of the materials and labor are also included in this estimate.

Building brokers do not always advise you to pick the company that submitted the lowest tender. Upon review, if the building broker feels the tender submitted misses’ various inclusions and will increase the contract sum to get a fully finished home, that home builder will not be suggested ad the preferred option by the broker.

Working with a building broker has proven to help consumers save significantly on their projects. However, it really depends on the building broker’s experience and knowledge in the industry. Most established brokerages are familiar and acquainted with most of the builders and construction contractors in their area. These relationships help them do their job and serve their customers better.

How Much Does Building Brokerage Fees Cost?

While some consumers are hesitant to hire a building broker, because they want to avoid additional costs, it can truly play in their favor. As mentioned above, a brokerage can help consumers save a significant amount of money on their projects. While some brokerages charge a fee to sustain their businesses, the fee is most often minimal. And, when you consider the fact that huge savings are a possibility, it only makes sense to work with a building broker. However, Build Search do not charge a fee and are paid by the builder as way of commission. This is similar to how the sales rep for the company would get paid for closing the deal.
