Frequently Asked Questions
How can choosing a Zenun Homes design benefit you?
Generally if you find a home design you like you can only use that design and get one price from the builder you are dealing with. Prices for New Homes can vary quite significantly for a similar product within the marketplace. At Zenun Homes you choose our design, make your changes and when you are 100% happy with everything we pass it onto 3 quality selected builders for their individual quotations. The way we do this doesn’t lock you into the "One builder One price scenario" This gives you the flexibility to compare 3 different quotations based on the same design and specification and then choose which scenario and builder best suits all your requirements and your your budget.
We are busy and its stressful looking for our new home. Can Zenun Homes help?
We can save you a considerable amount of time and stress by you not having to run around dealing with lots of different builders. If one builder has a plan you like you cant build it with another builder or get another opinion on the pricing if it comes in too high for you. At Zenun Homes we finalize your design exactly as you would like it then we get up 3 different quotations for you. We then sit with you and compare all the details of each quotation. We do all the hard work and all the running around on your behalf and if one scenario is not quite as you like we always have the other options available.
Can Zenun Homes help us to save money on our new home?
Definitely! Some builders are more geared towards single storey and others to 2 storey construction. Some may have too much work on at a particular time and others may be looking for more work when they may be more competitive with their pricing. Builders margins are not regulated and can vary significantly between different builders. We always try and find you the very best scenario based on your design and building requirements.

Why are the prices of your designs listed on your website as approximate figures?
Prices are always changing in the building industry. Due to the fact that we utilise different companies to quote our designs and your final plans, each price will vary based on the individual builders costs and quotation they supply. The approximate figures noted on our website should be a pretty good indication of where the pricing will be. The actual set price is provided by the individual builders at the time of quoting each job.
Note - Any pricing approximations as noted on our website is for Perth Metropolitan areas. Country pricing will vary based on your area and usually be more expensive than the metro pricing. Please contact us for details if you are outside the Metro area for an indication on country area surcharges.
