Strata tip #68: Construction – Finishes packages

Henry Ford once said that ‘you can have the car in any colour you like as long as it’s black’.  Providing options for finishes will make your buyers happier than Ford’s, but it can lead to ordering and supply issues for your construction contractor.  If you are going to offer different finishes packages make sure that you understand the cost consequences and your construction contract caters for them.  It’s also a fact of human psychology that if you offer a “luxury” option you’ll automatically get a percentage of buyers who choose it; make sure you price that option accordingly.
