Step 7: Starting the Build
Starting the build marks a significant milestone in your property investment journey. This is the time to break ground and begin the first steps of the building process! Every construction process is unique to the specific requirements of the project. However, whether it be a house or land, townhouse or dualkey investment property, the building process follows the same typical steps.
Phase one of the construction process is the slab pour. Once this has been completed, the foundation of your new investment property is set with the framework, roofing and brickwork, which is then followed by the installation of the electrical, plumbing and insulation systems. The final phase of the building process involves completing your new investment property with premium quality fixtures and fittings.
