The difference between a luxury home builder and a volume home builder – Part 1

If you’re researching potential builders to construct your new home and have landed on our website, it’s likely that you already know the answer to this question. 

Usually, by the time our clients come to be working with us, they don’t need any convincing, but if you’re new to the owner-builder game and still have a few questions as to why you’d elect a building company dedicated to quality over quantity, we’ll break it down for you.

When embarking on the exciting journey of building your new home, one of the first decisions you’ll make is who to build with. 

With the allure of lower build costs, house and land packages, tiered appliance packages, selected colour palettes, and shorter build times on offer through volume builders, it can be tempting to go with the cheaper, faster option. Somewhere around 150,000 Australian owner-builders take this route every year, after all, so you definitely wouldn’t be alone.

But if you’re more of a quality-over-quantity, attention-to-every-detail type of person like us, a boutique or luxury home builder like us is likely the right choice for you!

By choosing to build with one of Greater Sydney’s leading luxury builders like Merit Homes, you’ll have a home that is a one-of-a-kind, site-specific design made with premium build materials, hand-selected fixtures, fittings and appliances, stunning interior-designed spaces, and beautifully curated decor.

It’s important to note that once upon a time, most high-volume building companies we see today started out as small, quality home builders that grew too big, branched out as a franchise brand, and in doing so, lost hold of their small company values. 

While rapid growth may prove lucrative for some, Merit Homes has consciously steered in the opposite direction, preferring to maintain a hands-on approach to every home and a personal approach to every client relationship.
