Specialising in custom designed homes, TORRENS Building & Property Consultants offers a complete sales, design and estimating service for builders and owners, to deliver quality homes, on time and on budget.
With over 12 years experience in real estate, project marketing and building including custom-designed pole homes, industrial sheds and kit/moduar homes, we offer a broad range of services across all areas of the industry.
For builders, we offer a superior and cost-effective sales and administration service, from concept design through to drafting and approvals, Contract and Selections, leaving you to focus on the build side of the business.
For owners wanting to build, we produce your initial concept design and estimate, and find the best builder for your build. We then organise all plans, engineering and site tests/reports and offer a detailed Proposal and Specifications list to ensure your home includes everything you want and need before signing a contract. You save by engaging independent builders who don't charge huge markups for overheads, franchise fees and sales commissions... and no sneaky under-engineered or ommitted items resulting in huge post-contract variations!
Whether you are building a pole home, cottage, granny flat or even a kit home, we ensure a cost-effective design and that your builder is including everything you want in the Contract.
Sales, Design, Estimating,Business Development
We offer builders a complete sales service including:
concept designs (including 3D and VR) ready for drafting - saving weeks in design changes;
estimate breakdown: simple to understand and check against quotes - no more cost-blowouts;

Even if you have a display office, we work behind-the-scenes, liaising with your Leads and Clients, while your in-house salesperson works face-to-face.
Building a new home can be a daunting and difficult task, especially building a pole home on a difficult block. We assist owners before securing a block by:
producing a concept design and inclusions for a suitable home to suit the block;
providing an accurate estimate and detailed Specifications;
tender of concept plans to local builders to ensure you receive the best price, with all the inclusions you want;
assisting in obtaining all relevant designs, engineering, site tests/reports before contract - significantly reducing variations;
providing a detailed Proposal and Specifications list to ensure everything you want/need is included - no hidden or omitted items!
engage independent builders and save on huge markups, franchise fees and sales commissions.
Our Concept and Build Tender process can save you thousands and reduce the risk of over-capitalising on a block or purchasing a block that you cannot afford to build on.
Owners and Owner Builders
The biggest mistakes we see when developers market land estate are:
blocks priced disproportionately, and not taking into account
additional costs to build on different blocks;
sales agents under-quoting the actual costs associated with
building on sloping sites;
sales agents encouraging 'cheap builds', which negatively
impact the appeal of the estate, and the value of blocks.
With over 13 years working in real estate, project marketing and building, we assist buyers by providing accurate, honest and reliable advice when purchasing blocks.
Kit homes are a great way to save 20-30% or more on your home. However, working through the build process is a complicated process - site reports, engineering, certifications, building materials... it can all be very daunting.
We work with a renowned kit home company and help you through every stage to ensure a smooth process. Our service includes:
concept design to suit block and site reports - ready to send to drafter (saves thousands on re-designing and engineering cost blow-outs);
full estimation of the entire build and trades, and quote documents, so you can order materials directly from suppliers and ensure they are on budget;
optional service for assistance throughout the design and build process, including obtaining quotes and orders;
even finding a builder to build to any stage.
Owner-builders can jump straight into building without spending months researching and asking questions online.
