They want us to build

Two of the nation's leading housing associations along with 30 suppliers and builders have today launched a campaign in Western Australia, encouraging potential home buyers to build. The "Build Now" campaign, spearheaded by the Housing Industry Association (HIA) and the Masters Builders Association, was launched by Housing Minister Troy Buswell. The campaign is a bid by the housing sector to shake off the downturn at a time of historically low interest rates and declining property prices.

I think many builders don't understand the fear of being ripped off that probably puts off most people from building, at the very least me. So many things you hear about going wrong when people build. Maybe if they could think of a strategy to deal with this problem. For example, make a website which is interactive where people at various stages of building can share with each other their own experiences. Otherwise, buying an existing home seems to be an easier option.
