When you become an Owner Builder, you take on the responsibility of managing all the elements of your project. You are in charge of everything, from tradesmen to insurance to materials and everything in between.
It also means you are in charge of the financial aspect of the project. Unless you are a specialist in this field, it can seem like a battlefield with red tape and financial jargon making life tough.
And that is why so many Owner Builders decide to use Intellichoice as their brokers.
We understand construction. We understand financial institutions and we understand how to make both of them work together.
Between our team, we have more than 30 years experience in finance, construction and specifically Owner Builder finance.
We have successfully helped hundreds of Owner Builders navigate their way through the process and see their project to completion.
Unlike most brokers, we offer a “start to finish” service which means we are with you every step of the way.
We are there at the start, to help you ensure your projections and budgets are accurate and realistic. We help you secure your funding and then we help you manage each stage of the project. If any problems arise throughout the project, we are there to help fix them. And once the project is finished we are there to help consolidate all finances and clean everything up into one loan.
Here is a list of what we do. We:
- Access exclusive funding arrangements (where required)
