You don’t want to buy a house from a property developer? On the other hand, you don’t feel like having to take care of the whole building project yourself or even grabbing a shovel and hammer? Then a prefabricated house is ideal for you. Here you can choose the perfect house for you from countless models and expand it yourself or have it expanded, depending on your taste and budget.
The biggest advantage of a prefabricated house is the short construction time. The prefabricated parts can be put together very quickly, which saves time and money. You can also determine how much of your own work you want to invest. You can choose between different expansion levels. Whether turnkey, shell construction or extension house – you decide which construction work you want to leave to others and where you want to lend a hand yourself. Of course, this is also reflected in the price. In addition, ecological construction projects can also be easily implemented with a prefabricated house.
A disadvantage of the prefabricated house model is that extra costs are associated with all special requests. A fixed price is set for the basic equipment – however, as soon as you want a different door or different tiles, you pay a surcharge in some cases. In addition, the equipment of the property is determined on just one date, the so-called sampling. The immense selection and the many decisions that have to be made here at once overwhelm many clients.
- Get an overview of what a supplier is doing by visiting houses that have already been completed.
- Carry out the sampling before signing the contract – this will give you a better negotiating position.
