Check with the land developer puglover because I found HBC didn't inform us a lot on land cost side of things. We had to put down $1500 to the land…

Hi puglover, so glad your PWC went well. I believe the rule is that settlement needs to occur within 14 days of land titles. Ours was 9 days after the…

Raise the promotion when you talk to them as well because that's an ongoing thing and they always say it runs out just to get you to sign. Most people…

Depending on finance though, if you really want to go through with it with no/low deposit you most likely will have to go with BlueBay- that's the relationship they have…

Wood floors would be fine but HBC have laminate flooring- like rubber boards, not wood at all, unless you are getting this as an upgrade?...pretty common that they don't last…

The kitchen upgrade is awesome. We did the whole lot too.
If you have North facing windows like we do- the blinds are hopeless. You can walk past them at…

No worries, our leaks happened as soon as the first rains hit...I'm just glad we picked up on it but it was way before the house settled and shifted. We…

Sorry to hear that Box27. It's true though, if you specialise in 1st Homebuyers then you need to explain everything clearly. They are so used to seeing their own "lingo"…
