Fixed Price Contract
At Fresh Homes we understand that buying a home is a major investment and the last thing you need are
extra or hidden costs at the end of construction. That’s why we offer a fixed price contract, so the amount
that you agree to is the amount that you pay... not a cent more (subject only to contract terms & conditions;
HIA QC1 will be used as default).
