How many homes will my supervisor be looking after?
So generally, the way things work in building companies is you will have someone selling you your new home and then after all the pre-construction is done and your home is ready to build it gets passed on to a supervisor, it just depends on the size of the company you are dealing with.
So one of the questions you need to ask the company is how many homes your supervisor is going to be looking after. Now you wonder why this may be important to you, Well, a number of reasons.
The first reason is if the builder is stretched between too many of homes, it’s going to be a lot harder for them to keep up the high levels of communication with you, as I am sure you definitely want to know what’s going on in your home.
The second important thing is actually the time frame. Now if it’s very hard for a supervisor to take care of so many jobs and keep to a time frame. Before you know it the time of your construction can start slowly being pushed out simply because of the supervisor is unable to keep on top of organising trades and book deliveries to keep the job flowing in the right direction.
Lastly that the quality could start to drop if the time frame of the supervisor is in fact very minimal to actually go around and check the work that is being done.
So, as you can see it is very important to find out the number of jobs your supervisor is taking care of. Is this something that they could actually handle and do you think that this is going to be sufficient enough for them to actually maintain the high levels of communication and a good quality home built in a reasonable time that you deserve.
